The Big Lebowski script
Synopsis: Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski who insists on being called "the Dude," a laid-back, easygoing burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire whose wife owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money -- resulting in the Dude having his rug soiled, sending him spiraling into the Los Angeles underworld.

CHECKOUT GIRL:

She waits, arms folded. A small black-and white TV next to

her register shows George Bush on the White House lawn with

helicopter rotors spinning behind him.

GEORGE BUSH:

This aggression will not stand. . .

This will not stand!

The Dude, peeking over his shades, scribbles something at

the little customer's lectern. Milk beads his mustache.

VOICE-OVER

...and even if he's a lazy man, and

the Dude was certainly that--quite

possibly the laziest in Los Angeles

County.

The Dude has his Ralph's Shopper's Club card to one side and

is making out a check to Ralph's for sixty-nine cents.

VOICE-OVER

...which would place him high in the

runnin' for laziest worldwide--but

sometimes there's a man. . . sometimes

there's a man.

EXTERIOR RALPH'S

Long shot of the glowing Ralph's. There are only two or

three cars parked in the huge lot.
