She wanted him to be examined to make sure he was fertile and healthy to be the father of the child she wanted. It's possible that the exam could have included a virility exam, which would include a check for sperm count, which is usually done by examining a sperm sample. As such, The Dude may have masturbated during the exam to provide the sample, and his ...


Larry did, in fact, steal The Dude's car. Larry stole the car, and took it for a joy-ride, then abandoned it. The homework was in there simply because Larry wasn't terribly smart, and didn't seem to particularly care about getting caught.

And we don't even know Donny's prior health condition. In short, you ...


Walter owns his own security store. He is clearly in front of Sobchak Security store when The Dude picks him up to go pay the ransom.
