Walter Sobchak: [shouting] Over the line!
Smokey: Huh?
Walter Sobchak: I’m sorry Smokey you were over the line that’s a foul
Smokey: Bullshit. Mark it eight Dude
Walter Sobchak: Uh excuse me? Mark it zero. Next frame
Smokey: Bullshit. Mark it eight Dude
Walter Sobchak: Smokey, this is not Nam. This is bowling. There are rules
The Dude: Hey come on. It’s Smokey so his toe stepped over a little. It’s just a game man.
Walter Sobchak: This is a league game. This game determines who enters the next round robin. Am I wrong?
Smokey: Yeah but.
Walter Sobchak: Am I wrong?
Smokey: Yeah but I wasn’t over. Gimme the marker dude. I’m marking it eight.
Smokey: [reaches into his bag and pulls out a pistol] Smokey my friend you’re entering a world of pain.
The Dude: Jesus man.
Walter Sobchak: You mark that frame an eight you’re entering a world of pain.
Smokey: I’m not…
Walter Sobchak: A world of pain.
Smokey: Dude, I’m marking it…
Walter Sobchak: [Screams and points the gun at Smokey] Has the whole world gone crazy? Am I the only one who gives a shit about the rules? Mark it zero.
The Dude: They’re gonna call the cops man put the piece away.
Walter Sobchak: [Continuing to scream] Mark it zero!
The Dude: Put the piece away.
The Dude: [He cocks back the slide on the pistol and continues yelling] You think I’m fucking around here? Mark it zero!
Smokey: [He grabs the marker from Dude and marks it] Alright it’s fuckin’ zero! Are you happy you crazy fuck?
Walter Sobchak: [He calmly removes the round from the chamber and sits back down] Nope. It’s a league game.
