"The Dude" Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire Lebowski, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it.
The check that The Dude writes in the beginning of the movie, for only $0.69, is post-dated. He clearly writes the date as 9/11/91 and when he speaks to his landlord later in the movie the landlord reminds him that "Tomorrow is the tenth."
Way out west there was this fella... fella I wanna tell ya about. Fella by the name of Jeff Lebowski. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. Mr. Lebowski, he called himself "The Dude". Now...
The briefcase that Brandt gives The Dude is not large enough to hold one million dollars in twenty dollar bills. One "Brick" of twenty dollar bills contains one thousand bills. Which is twenty-thousand dollars. It would take 50 (fifty) "Bricks" to make up the one million dollars in twenty dollar bills. Hence, The Dude would have needed a much larger briefcase.
