Reading the script for "The Big Lebowski" at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tfTyDwTFd-3RgYrYDzT2bhpFA-gHUrFEaHy1R8mLF94/edit it reads:

DUDE
        You see a wedding ring?  Does this 
        place look like I'm fucking married?   
        All my plants are dead!

But in the movie The Dude states "The toilet seat is up man" instead of "All my plants are dead!". Was this improvised or a mistake in the script posted?

    No direct answer to the question but it's not uncommon that the script differs from the movie. – Charmin Jan 16 '15 at 23:17
  • This is a pretty broad question. As Charmin states, scripts often don't match the dialogue. – DA. Jun 5 '15 at 6:10

The line was probably changed to a funnier/clearer one. It isn't uncommon that scripts differ from actual movies, professional acting and directing not always require to follow every word of the script.

    Downvote. This isn't any different that what Charmin said in the comment. Unless you have anything substantial to add as an answer this would have been better as a comment. – Pale Blue Dot Sep 19 '16 at 9:31
