Decade of the Dude

Ten years on, Rolling Stone investigates why The Big Lebowski became the most worshiped movie of its generation.

Excerpt:

No one is more surprised by the extended life of Lebowski than the people who made it. When I meet him one afternoon in L.A., Goodman immediately tells me it’s his “favorite thing [he’s] ever worked on,” and he laughs uproariously when I quote him some of Walter’s best lines (a favorite: “Say what you will about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it’s an ethos”). Moore, who played Maude, the estranged artist daughter of the wealthy Jeffrey Lebowski, says it’s “one of the movies people mention most to me. I keep saying that one of these days I’m going to go to a Lebowski Fest.” Adds Buscemi, who has appeared in nearly 100 films, including a few Oscar winners, “I’ll pass three guys on the street, and they may just give me a nod. They don’t even have to say a line from the movie. I know what movie they’re thinking about.”

Definitely one of my favorite movies. Ever.

Now I want to open it up to you. What is your favorite line from the movie?
