* HistoricalCharacterConfusion: The Dude is struggling with a Lenin quote ("You look for the person who will benefit...") which he cannot remember properly. Donny, trying to be helpful, repeatedly mentions ''John'' Lennon's 1967 song "I Am the Walrus". Considering the context, he is most likely actually quoting Cicero's "Cui bono?"("to whose benefit?") who used it in the sense "Who benefits from the crime?"; Lenin would later quote Cicero.
