Lebowski 3-2-1


As part of our spotlight, and trip to Lebowski Fest, Joe, Rene, and myself have collaborated on a 3-2-1 list which covers our: 3 favorite quotes, 2 favorite scenes, and 1 favorite character.   Check out our lists, listen to our Lebowski Fest episode, and then watch for our first ever video podcast of our time at Lebowski Fest.  

Rene:

3 Favorite Quotes

“He treats objects like women, man.”

“Ever hear of the Seattle Seven? That was me and six other guys.”

“I am the walrus.”

2 Favorite Scenes:

The scene where Brant and The Big Lebowski confront The Dude in the limo and The Dude tries to explain what happened to the money. The word play and acting in that scene are really good. 

The scene where The Dude meets Maude for the first time and she explains what’s going on. Moore is great in that moment, playing off of Bridges. “Vagina!”

1 Favorite Character:

The Dude. I have converted to Dudism and didn’t know it until pretty recently.

Mike:

3 Favorite Quotes:

“Also, Dude, Chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please.”

“Hey, careful, man, there’s a beverage here!”

“This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, a lotta outs, a lotta what-have-yous. And, uh, a lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder’s head. Fortunately, I’m adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep my mind, you know, uh, limber.”

2 Favorite Scenes:

The Gutterballs dream sequence.  Bridges dancing his way down the stairs was masterful.  

The entire four-minute segment with Little Larry, a smashed corvette, and some good advice on what not to do to a stranger.

1 Favorite Character:

The Jesus.  Despite his pederastic leanings, The Jesus is easily the most animated and well portrayed supporting character in the film.  And besides, nobody &%#@$ with him.

Joe:

3 Favorite Quotes:

“Hey, careful man, there’s a beverage here!”
 
“I told that Kraut a f*ckin’ thousand times, I don’t roll on shabbos!”
 
“I do mind, the Dude minds. This will not stand, ya know, this aggression will not stand, man.”

2 Favorite Scenes:

When The Dude & Walter go to confront Larry about his homework and the way Walter acts around his father like an adoring fan only to go ballistic when confronting Larry and bashes the Corvette outside to only find out it’s the neighbor’s car. Classic scene with great lines.
 
The scene when the two guys confront the Dude in his apartment, give him a swirly & pee on his rug. More Classic lines.

1 Favorite Character:

Walter Sobchak.  I just love how his whole demeanor and attitude can change in the drop of a hat and be so out there.
