This is a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you's. And, uh, lotta strands to keep in my head, man. Lotta strands in old Duder's head. Luckily I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep my Mind, you know, limber.
..Fuck me. I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.
Walter Sobchak: Were you listening to The Dude's story? Donny: I was bowling. Walter Sobchak: So you have no frame of reference here, Donny. You're like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know - The Dude: Walter, Walter, what's the point, man? Walter Sobchak: There's no reason - Here's my point, Dude. There's no fucking reason why these two - Donny: Yeah, Walter, what's your point? Walter Sobchak: Huh? The Dude: Walter, what is the poin-? Look, we all know who is at fault here - what the fuck are you talking about? Walter Sobchak: Huh? No, what the fuck are you … ! I'm not … we're talking about unchecked aggression here, Dude. Donny: What the fuck is he talking about? The Dude: My rug. Walter Sobchak: Forget it, Donny, you're out of your element!
Walter Sobchak: Smokey, this is not 'Nam. This is bowling. There are rules.
Walter Sobchak: (shouting) Has the whole world gone CRAZY?! [stands up] AM I THE ONLY ONE AROUND HERE WHO GIVES A SHIT ABOUT THE RULES?! MARK IT ZERO!
