I know the Coen bros. have their own, but Lebowski's too good. Here are some of my favorites:

(1) every scene with P. Seymour Hoffman. His laughs, his devotion to the real Mr. Lebowski, his use of "Dude." His best line might be "First Lady of the nation, yes, yes" or "They're not literally his children."

(2) When Bridges says, "Must be exhausting" about being a nihilist.

(3) "Until it goes CAAALLLIIICCKKK."

(4) "Tomorrow's the 10th."
"Far out."

(5) "Donny who loved bowling."

(6) "I am the walrus."

(7) every time Walter tells Donny to shut the fuck up or he's out of his element. This is especially perfect in the first bowling scene ("you're like a child who wanders into a room")

( 8) "I can get you a toe by two o' clock."

ahhhhh yes. lebowski. now where do we start? my favourite is also the 'must be exhausting...' about nihilism, and what makes it even better is esquivel playing in the background. i showed this film to my very good friend recently, and ever since then it has been 'fuck it dude, let's go bowling.' in fact, a group of us bowled for the first time since primary school just so we could break out the ' i'm throwing rocks tonight..... you guys are dead in the water!'.
other best lines i hear you ask?

'way to go donny!'
'you fucked it up. you fucked it up!'
'phone's ringin' dude.'
'i still jerk of manually....... of course you do'
and far to many more.

'...what's she done with her life that's been so great? nuthin...'

classic ones -- i knew lebowski fans were hovering!

a few more are:

(1) the entire sequence when Walter brings the dog. The "Way to Go Donny" and "Over the line" (as were chosen above) and also Walter quoting Theodore Hertzl ("If you will it, it is not a dream") and then explaining it's a show dog and it gets upset if its caged. I love his ex-wife's boyfriend's name -- "Marty Ackerman" -- and how Walter explains the situation so matter-of-factly.

(2) "Wonderful woman." Hoffman's line here is another one of my favorites.

(3) "No funny stuff." This line is peppered throughout the entire movie. It gets funnier every time it's said.

(4) "You mean coitus?"

(5) The entire "Chinaman" riff -- how Walter chides the Dude about using that nomenclature and then when the Dude sees the real Jeffrey Lebowski, the old man says "when a Chinaman shot me in Korea."

(6) "El Dudarino, if you're not into the whole brevity thing."

(7) "Get a job, sir!"

Max,

Don't I know it. I've been to several dinners or parties where someone will throw out a LEBOWSKI line and I'll recognize it and from then on we keep going with hundreds of them.

Yeah, when he trips over his own anti-theft device and then looks back, it's just classic. I also love when he's lying on the floor listening to the tape of a past tournament and all you hear are strikes.

and how he hops out of one limo (with a beverage man!) only to be dragged into another limo on the other side of a very quiet suburban road...

Most quoted Lebowski lines, huh? OK...

-No, that had not occurred to us, Dude.

-I'm calmer n' you are...









...calmer n' you are. <p><!--EZCODE HR START--><hr /><!--EZCODE HR END--><!--EZCODE FONT START--><span style="font-size:xx-small;">"You see my kind of loyalty was loyalty to one's country, not to its institutions, or its office holders. The country is the real thing, the substantial thing, the eternal thing; it is the thing to watch over, and care for, and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they are its mere clothing, and clothing can wear out, become ragged, cease to be comfortable, cease to protect the body from winter, disease, and death. To be loyal to rags, to shout for rags, to worship rags, to die for rags--this is loyalty to unreason, it is pure animal; it belongs to monarchy, was invented by monarchy; let monarchy keep it."

David, thanks for starting BL thread.

Big Lebowski is a Holy Grail of quoting. I'm to afraid to misquote, so i'll cheat a bit, bear with me. you already mentioned so many fantastic moments and lines, here is my list:

sometimes there's a man (the whole opening sequence)

does this place looks like i'm married. the toilet seat is up.

obviously you're not a golfer

you're like a child who wonders in the middle of the movie

Lebowski urban achievers

... to live on her allowance which is ample...

Your "revolution" is over, Mr. Lebowski! Condolences! The bums lost!

Wonderful woman. Very free-spirited. We're all very fond of her.

it's a fucking show dog with fucking papers. You can't board it. It gets upset, its hair falls out.

the whole: Mark it zero is a masterpiece
you're entering the world of pain

am i the only one that care about the rules?!

...beyond pacifism?

and my favourite, i'll just copy it, ok?

Lacrimosa playing in the background.
<!--EZCODE CODE START--><pre> LEBOWSKI It's funny. I can look back on a life of achievement, on challenges met, competitors bested, obstacles overcome. I've accomplished more than most men, and without the use of my legs. What. . . What makes a man, Mr. Lebowski? DUDE Dude. LEBOWSKI Huh? DUDE I don't know, sir. LEBOWSKI Is it. . . is it, being prepared to do the right thing? Whatever the price? Isn't that what makes a man? DUDE Sure. That and a pair of testicles. Lebowski turns away from the Dude with a haunted stare, lost in thought. LEBOWSKI You're joking. But perhaps you're right. The Dude thumps at his chest pocket. DUDE Mind if I smoke a jay? LEBOWSKI Bunny. He turns back around and the firelight shows teartracks on his cheeks. DUDE 'Scuse me? LEBOWSKI Bunny Lebowski. . . She is the light of my life. Are you surprised at my tears, sir? DUDE Fuckin' A. LEBOWSKI Strong men also cry. . . Strong men also cry.</pre><!--EZCODE CODE END-->
