    Anybody else notice that the 69-cent check the Dude writes at the beginning is dated Sept. 11?

    I've watched The Big Lebowski many many times and I didn't even think of that!

    I didn't catch it, either. Probably missed it between the laughing fits and the John Goodman rants. [​IMG]

    Huh, I've seen it maybe 10 times and never noticed that. Since the dude abides, I will watch it again.

    Someone on this forum made mention of the coincidence sometime in late September/Early October.
    I was just talking about this with a friend today, and even created a screen cap of the cheque:

    I'm surprised the name on his check doesn't appear "The dude" ...because he's The Dude, man.

    The best part of the Big Lebowski was the Dude's rug. It just really tied the room together.
