Heartwarming / The Big Lebowski

  • Not many in this film, but there's a small one just before the final fight with the nihilists, when Donnie is frightened and Walter, for once in his life, takes a break from berating him to say that he's not going to let anybody hurt him.
  • After all the verbal abuse Walter gives Donny it's really touching seeing Walter comfort his friend as he literally dies in his arms.
    • Also following that, at Donny's funeral, Walter gives a eulogy which ends with him referencing 'Nam again and shaking Donny's ashes in the Dude's face. The Dude angrily yells at Walter. Walter's reaction: hugs the Dude and quietly suggest they go bowling.
