This has me really shaken up.
Apparently others have taken note as well, to judge by the twittering.
Jackie Treehorn. The first time I saw “Lebowski” (in Las Vegas!), Ben Gazzara’s apparition (in that white suit) nearly made me scream with pleasure.
“Hello, Dude. Thanks for coming. I’m Jackie Treehorn.”
It was so unexpected, and I liked to died.
I’m going to go (continue to) drink. I’ve just about had it with alla this death. Yeah?
Sheila, a toast. “Here’s to Ben Gazzara, Don Cornelius and Etta James. You still live, burned in our memories.”
Back atcha, Ricky Cameron.
“Well, I still jerk off manually.”
“Of course you do.”
