Real friends tell it like it is

Brandt: Mr. Lebowski is prepared to make a generous offer to you to act as courier, once we get instructions for the money.
The Dude: Why me, man?
Brandt: He believes the culprits might be the very people who, uh, soiled your rug, and you are in a unique position to confirm or disconfirm that suspicion.
The Dude: He thinks the carpet pissers did this?
Brandt: Well Dude, we just don't know.

The Dude: I dropped off the money exactly as per... look, man, I've got certain information, all right? Certain things have come to light. And, you know, has it ever occurred to you, that, instead of, uh, you know, running around, uh, uh, blaming me, you know, given the nature of all this new s--t, you know, I-I-I-I... this could be a-a-a-a lot more, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, complex, I mean, it's not just, it might not be just such a simple... uh, you know?
The Big Lebowski: What in God's holy name are you blathering about?
The Dude: I'll tell you what I'm blathering about... I've got information man! New s--t has come to light! And s--t... man, she kidnapped herself. Well sure, man. Look at it... a young trophy wife, in the parlance of our times, you know, and she, uh, uh, owes money all over town, including to known pornographers, and that's cool... that's, that's cool, I'm, I'm saying, she needs money, man. And of course they're going to say that they didn't get it, because... she wants more, man! She's got to feed the monkey, I mean uh... hasn't that ever occurred to you, man? Sir?


  1. Bottom line is that Donny took a bullet for his buddies and died. It wasn't voluntary, but he could have run when he saw the nilists and he didn't.

    But I will say Walter is a very loyal friend.

    You absolutely positively could never count on the dude to do anything.

    And although Brandt is very loyal to the Big Lebowski, he's only doing it to collect his paycheck every two weeks.

  2. Donny had a heart attack. He didn't get shot. You might need to rethink this. I voted for Donny too but he didn't get shot.

  3. Yes but at first Walter thought he was're right that's lame, I just forgot.

    My point still stands. He took one for the team, regardless of the cause of death.

  4. He was standing 10-15 feet behind the action the whole time. The nihilists scared him so bad his heart stopped. Donny was a good friend but let's not portray him as some kind of hero.

  5. Brandt is the man! He would know everything about you and be able to talk you up in front of the ladies. He is the ultimate wingman! The only thing that brings down his rank is that it would cost another $100 for him to watch...

  6. Haha, You're right, I concede. I am chaning my vote to Walter. Although he is a little misguided, I think his heart is in the right place. Who wouldn't want a friend as loyal as Walter?

  7. Why is The Dude getting scrubbed in this conversation? I would love to hang with The Dude. He knows how to "take it easy", loves to bowl, will go to the theater to give a friend notes, and has genius ideas like calling White Russians "Caucasians". And lets not forget when he ran over to the notepad and used that trick from kindergarten to find out what that guy had written on the piece of paper. It ended up being a dead end, but genius none the less.

  8. The dude would rock on the river, I mean how much fun would that be. As for most loyal, I would agree with Jake on Danny. Danny was always looking out for the guys, even if he was a little scard, but he was never an a-hole to the other two like Walter.

  9. Kevin - Your spelling never ceases to amaze me. Tell Danny I said hi.

  10. Speaking of Dude movies...I suggest everyone go out and see "The Hangover" It is the best comedy I have seen in a real long time.

  11. Danny, Donny...its the same right....right...ok, fine.

  12. Oh Donny boy, the lanes, the lanes are calling
    From Malibu to The Valley, and down the mountain side
    The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
    'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
    But come ye back when summer's in the valley
    Or when the valley's hushed and white with blow
    'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
    Oh Donny boy, oh Donny boy, I love you so.

  13. You have to watch the second video on the left (the cartoon one) - it's hilarious

  14. That was great...but don't watch it when your co-works are in the office...hahahaha

  15. If anyone needs a 30 minute time kill, try clicking on "next blog" at the top of the page. I went to about 50 other blogs and found some pretty interesting ones. One was dedicated to fist pumps. Another to World of Warcract (I know, surprising), and I even found one for a hot nanny who needs a man, although she didn't have any pictures posted so who knows.

    I was surprised to see how many blogs out there have no comments on any of the articles. These people are blogging their asses off and no one is reading them. I posted the first comment on numerous blogs...I hope I made someone's day!!
