There is a great scene in The Big Lebowski
. The Dude
is tokin' up in his bubble bath, idiot grin on his face. A squad of nihilist
s bursts through the door of the apartment
and into the bathroom
. They are pissed
, which is quite un-nihilistic
of them. They are looking for their money, and have what appears to be a ferret
in tow. "Nice marmot."
says The Dude, drug-addled. In one smooth motion, the head nihilist releases the rodent from its collar and into The Dude's watery retreat
. It's as if a switch has been thrown.
must have given both the actor and the animal the same instruction
s, because they both begin to scream
as if possessed
. What a buzz-kill
This set-piece scene had me rolling on the floor.
