Movie Scene : The Big Lebowski – Relaxing in the Tub

download (4)

What a way to fuck up a good soak and little buzz. Trying to avoid a ferret from biting Mr. Johnson.

The Dude is having a nice relaxing bath, getting high.  His answering machine has picked up a message that his missing car has been recovered and can be picked up.  He is one happy dude.  That is all interrupted when three nihilists break into his pad and interrupt his short lived chillax.  Shit hits the fan.

Yup, CB likes this one.  The Coens create a great bit with everyone involved creating one funny scene.  Bridges’ performance is stamped into our heads. Funny scene, funny movie.

There’s a bounty on Mr. Johnson.  Lebowski doesn’t need this shit man!

    I watch this movie at least twice a year… never gets old and the scenes with the nihilists are some of the best. Amazing stuff.

    I’ve known of the cult reputation of this movie for quite a while. Finally saw it. Meh. Not bad, but not something I feel like I need to see again. Sorely disappointed in Steve Buscemi’s non-role role.

      That “cult” status and hype can color things for sure. It happens with music/film all the time for CB. But Doc you’ve been in the tub for a good soak and maybe a little puff but have you ever had a “marmot” jump in with you?

        I confess I have not had that experience. But the day is young.

    This movie has made me laugh more than any other I can think of. Incredibly hilarious.

    By the way, I saw Charles Lloyd last night. What a show!

      Yeah I really dig so much about the film but this scene jumped out at me. The whole set up with the Dude in his shrine, candles, radio, I’m starting to chuckle already. Probably a few more coming from this film (and other Coen work) down the road.

      Cool on the Charles gig. Wish I was there. I was watching the great Canadian past-time , curling, with my mom, while you were grooving to the music.

      You’re right but I would knock a few balls around with the Dude if I had a chance. I’m glad we don’t have any of those there “Nihilists” where I live.

        Nihilists! Fuck me… I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it’s an ethos

        “We believe in nothing Lebowski, nothing” insert the accent.
