Answer to MWL 6/10/15: Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) – The Big Lebowski
Walter: Over the line!
Walter: I’m sorry Smokey, you were over the line. That’s a foul.
Smokey: Bullshit. Mark it eight, Dude.
Walter: Uh, excuse me. Mark it zero. Next frame.
Smokey: Bullshit, Walter. Mark it eight, Dude.
Walter: Smokey, this is not ‘Nam, this is bowling. There are rules.
The Dude: Hey Walter, come on. It’s just a game, man. It’s Smokey. So his toe slipped over the line a little. You know, it’s just a game, man.
Walter: This is a league game. This determines who enters the next round robin. Am I wrong?
Smokey: Yea, but I wasn’t…
Walter: Am I wrong?
Smokey: Yea, but I wasn’t over. Give me the marker, Dude. I’m marking an eight.
Walter: Smokey, my friend, [Pulls out gun] you’re entering a world of pain.
The Dude: Whoa, Walter, man.
Walter: You mark that frame an eight, you are entering a world of pain.
Smokey: I’m not…
Walter: A world of pain.
Smokey: Look, Dude, I… This is your partner.
Walter: Has the whole world gone crazy?! Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules?! Mark it zero!
The Dude: Walter, they’re calling the cops, man. Put the piece away.
Walter: Mark it zero!
The Dude: Walter, put the piece away.
Walter: You think I’m fucking around here?! [Cocks gun] Mark it zero!
Smokey; Alright, it’s fucking zero. You happy, you crazy fuck?
Walter: [Unloads gun] It’s a league game, Smokey.

So I made a little goof when I wrote this week’s MWL post (sorry Kim) and gave away the answer in the quote. So here is another great quote from The Big Lebowski and what the MWL was originally going to be this week:
Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not “Mr. Lebowski”. You’re Mr. Lebowski. I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing. -The Dude
