Clive's Father: Culture clash. Culture clash.
Larry Gopnik: With all respect, Mr. Park, I don't think it's that.
Clive's Father: Yes.
Larry Gopnik: No. It would be a culture clash if it were the custom in your land to bribe people for grades.
Clive's Father: Yes.
Larry Gopnik: So... you're saying it is the custom?

SERIOUSLY good film - "I mean, the parking lot here. Not much to see. It is a different angle on the same parking lot we saw from the Hebrew school window. But if you imagine yourself a visitor, somebody who isn't familiar with these... autos and such... somebody still with a capacity for wonder... Someone with a fresh... perspective."

Larry Gopnik: Move out! Where would I go?
Sy Ableman: Well, for instance, the Jolly Roger is quite livable. Not expensive, and the rooms are eminently habitable.
Judith Gopnik: This would allow you to visit the kids.
Sy Ableman: There's convenience in its favor... There's a pool....
Larry Gopnik: Wouldn't it make more sense for you to move in with Sy?
[Shocked pause]
Judith Gopnik: Larry!
Sy Ableman: Larry, you're jesting!
Judith Gopnik: Larry, there is much to accomplish before that can happen.
Sy Ableman: Larry, Larry, Larry. I think, really, the Jolly Roger is the appropriate course of action..... It has a pool.

I love that scene in his office, getting the call from the Columbia Record Club! It has some of my favorite lines!

Larry Gopnik:[shouting] I don't want Santana Abraxis! I've just been in a terrible auto accident!

Records co.(Phone): I'm sorry, sir

Larry Gopnik:[about to cry] Well, thank you, but I...

Records co.(Phone): Are you okay?

Larry Gopnik: Yes, yes.. no one was hurt.

Records co.(Phone):Okay, good.. Well, you have 14 days to listen to Santana Abraxis.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
About the album being contested, actually called "Abraxas", title came from Herman Hesse's book "Demian" and the album jacket had the quote:

"We stood before it and began to freeze inside from the exertion. We questioned the painting, berated it, made love to it, prayed to it: We called it mother, called it whore and slut, called it our beloved, called it Abraxas...."

I always thought it was a key reveal to a major theme in the movie. I idea of *doing nothing*, and its moral consequences. The idea of charmed and cursed lives. . . .
It's also a theme tossed around in 'Lebowski', of course, that saga of the laziest bowler in Los Angeles County. . .

She's lying down in viscid, skooshy strands of Cherry Jell-O
Buttocks popping in arpeggios of lust
There's tattoo's up and down her spine of Griffin Vultures
from the Valley of King's
Slowly throbbing Eat Me
She is as horny as a heathen
Her dildo is made out of a petrified tapir snout
Around her neck-neck is an amulet made from onyx colored tit wax
She's the goddess of love She's the goddess of belly belly belly belly love
The goddess of late night motel plate jobs slurp circles and Jell-O orgies

Interesting results so far. For me personally, I have only seen a little more than half of the movies on this list, and I have yet to find a Coen Brothers movie that I like. I am just not a fan in any way.
