The Nihilist guy from Lebowski is also the "un-pimp ze ride" guy.


He was also Abruzzi in Prison Break.

My two favorite comedies (if not movies) of all time are The Big Lebowski and Blazing Saddles, if they match up, I dunno who I will vote for.

Darkness warshed over the Dude--darker'n a black steer's tookus on a moonless prairie night. There was no bottom.


It's a male myth about feminists that we hate sex. It can be a natural, zesty enterprise. But unfortunately there are some people--it is called satyriasis in men, nymphomania in women--who engage in it compulsively and without joy.


Dude: They kept saying they believe in nothing.
Walter: Nihilists! Jesus. Say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.


Donny: Are these the Nazis, Walter?
Walter: They're nihilists, Donny, nothing to be afraid of.


Maude: This compulsive fornicator is taking my father for the proverbial ride.


Dude: Walter, you can't do that. These guys're like me, they're pacificists. Smokey was a conscientious objector.
Walter: You know Dude, I myself dabbled with pacifism at one point. Not in Nam, of course--


Walter: Smokey my friend, you're entering a world of pain.


Waitress: Sir, if you don't calm down I'm going to have to ask you to leave.
Walter: Lady, I got buddies who died face-down in the muck so you and I could enjoy this nice family restaurant!


Cop: And was there anything of value in the car?
Dude: Huh? Oh. Yeah. Tape deck. Couple of Creedence tapes. And there was a, uh... my briefcase.
Cop: In the briefcase?
Dude: Papers. Just papers. You know, my papers. Business papers.
Cop: And what do you do, sir?
Dude: I'm unemployed.


Man, I love this movie, why this isn't considered the greatest movie ever baffles me.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Lebowski as the greatest movie ever? Not even close. Hell, it's not even in the ballpark. I could probably list 200 or so better.


Lebowski as the greatest comedy ever? Again, not close. But it would likely crack the top 50.

I much prefer Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb.


Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

I turned Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bomb, off. It bored the heck out of me.

Although the War Room line is a good one...

Lebowski is frickin hilarious. There aren't many movies I'd wanna watch over that one. In fact I'd say its my favorite. Although I like comedies better then drama etc.. because I find comedies more realistic in some senses then other movies.

Log Jammin' ;-D

Dr. Strangelove isn't a comedy so much as it's satire; and great satire for its time period.
