I realize that entire life philosophies have been inspired by this movie so this list is nothing groundbreaking, but it's nice to revisit the Tao of the Dude every now and then.
  1. "That rug really tied the room together."
  2. "Fuck it, Dude, let's go bowling."
    Great life philosophy -- sometimes you just gotta say fuck it and go bowling! 🎳
  3. "Saturday, Donny, is Shabbos, the Jewish day of rest. That means that I don't work, I don't drive a car, I don't fucking ride in a car, I don't handle money, I don't turn on the oven, and I sure as shit don't fucking roll!"
    John Goodman's delivery of this line is 💯
  4. "Nobody fucks with the Jesus."
  5. "Mind if I do a J?"
    It's polite to ask first. Fun fact, this is something I've asked of multiple Uber drivers and I'm usually told no but once I got a big fat yes and it was rad.
  6. "I'm the Dude so that's what you call me. That or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino, if you're not into that whole brevity thing."
  7. "This is what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass, Larry."
  8. "Life does not stop and start at your convenience you miserable piece of shit."
    Arguably my favorite quote from this movie, and a sentiment worth remembering at least once a day.
  9. "Yeah, well, you know, that's just like, your opinion, man."
    Can't you just hear The Dude saying this in your brain right now? I can and I love saying this to people when I disagree with them. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but that is YOUR opinion and mine might be different.
  10. "The Dude abides."
    "I don't know about you, but I take comfort in that. It's good knowing he's out there... The Dude: taking it easy for all us sinners..."
  11. "Sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes the bar eats you."
    Too true.

  13. "Smokey, this is not 'Nam, this is bowling, there are rules."
    Another line only John Goodman could have pulled off like this, I say this often to rule breakers whether or not we are bowling.
