Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski, mistaken for a millionaire of the same name, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it.
The fast-food restaurant In-N-Out Burger is referred to during the movie, for which John Goodman once did a commercial.
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...
At the end of the Gutterballs sequence, when the bowling pins are knocked over, wires can be seen that were used to move the pins.
