The Big Lebowski
"Life Doesn't Stop and Start at Your Convenience!" Scene
Clip Description
According to rumor, the line "Life does not stop and start at your convenience, you miserable piece of shit" was directed at Joel Coen, when John Goodman thought he said "cut." However, this reason is obviously a joke propagated by the Coens. The line is in the original shooting script and clearly fits the tone of the scene. Walter is expressing his sentiments about the Big Lebowski thinking he can summon the Dude during league-play. It may even be directed at Donny, since he is (again) attempting to enter the conversation without prior knowledge of what the Dude and Walter are talking about.
Movie Description
Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski is the ultimate LA slacker, until one day his house is broken into and his rug is peed on by two angry gangsters who have mistaken him for Jeffrey Lebowski, the LA millionaire, whose wife owes some bad people some big money. The Dude becomes entangled in the plot when he goes to visit the real Lebowski in order to get some retribution for his soiled rug, and is recruited to be the liason between Lebowski and the captors of his now "kidnapped" wife.
