Walter Sobchak: I'm saying, I see what you're getting at, Dude, he kept the money. My point is, here we are, it's shabbas, the sabbath, which I'm allowed to break only if it's a matter of life or death...
The Dude: Will you come off it, Walter? You're not even ****ing Jewish, man.
Walter Sobchak: What the **** are you talkin' about?
The Dude: Man, you're ****ing Polish Catholic...
Walter Sobchak: What the **** are you talking about? I converted when I married Cynthia! Come on, Dude!
The Dude: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Walter Sobchak: And you know this!
The Dude: Yeah, and five ****ing years ago you were divorced.
Walter Sobchak: So what are you saying? When you get divorced you turn in your library card? You get a new license? You stop being Jewish?
The Dude: It's all a part of your sick Cynthia thing, man. Taking care of her ****ing dog. Going to her ****ing synagogue. You're living in the ****ing past.
Walter Sobchak: Three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax...
Walter Sobchak: YOU'RE GODDAMN RIGHT I'M LIVIN' IN THE ****IN' PAST!
The Dude: What's in the ****in' carrier?
Walter Sobchak: Huh? Oh, that's Cynthia's dog. I think it's a Pomeranian. I can't leave him home alone or he eats the furniture. I'm watching him while Cynthia and Marty Ackerman are in Hawaii.
The Dude: You brought the ****in' Pomeranian bowling?
Walter Sobchak: What do you mean brought it bowling, Dude? I didn't rent it shoes. I'm not buying it a ****ing beer. He's not taking your ****ing turn, Dude.
The Dude: Man, if my ****in' ex-wife asked me to take care of her ****in' dog while she and her boyfriend went to Honolulu I'd tell her to go **** herself.
Verteller: The proverb is wrong. Time does not heal all wounds. It merely softens the pain and blurs the memories.
Harry: Are you alright?
Sally: Come on in.
Sally: I'm sorry to call you so late.
Harry: It's alright.
Sally: I need a Kleenex.
Sally: He just called me up 'wanted to see how you were', fine. 'How are you?', fine. His secretary's on vacation, everything's all backed up and he's got a big case to do, blah blah blah. And I'm sitting on the phone I'm thinking, I'm over him, I really am over him. I can't believe that I'd ever be remotely interested in any of that. And then he said I have some news. She works in his office, she's a paralegal, her name is Kimberley. (Sob, Sob.) He just met her. She's suppose to be his transitional person, she's not suppose to be the one. All this time I've been saying that he didn't want to get married, but the truth is, he didn't want to marry me. He didn't love me.
Harry: If you could take him back right now, would you?
Sally: No, but why didn't he want to marry me? What's the matter with me?
Harry: Aw, nothing.
Sally: I'm difficult.
Harry: You're challenging.
Sally: I'm too structured, I'm completely closed off.
Harry: But in a good way.
Sally: No, no, no I drove him away, and I'm going to be forty.
Harry: In eight years.
Sally: But it's there. It's just sitting there like this big dead end. And it's not the same for men. Charlie Chaplain had babies when he was seventy three.
Harry: Yeah but he was too old to pick them up.
