At home, The Dude goes through his door only to be dragged by
thugs into the bathroom, where he is dunked in a toilet repeatedly.

pees on the rug.

Title sequence takes place at the bowling alley, closeups of balls,
gutters, pins, smoking, shoes. The Dude and Walter talk about the
valued rug, and maybe Mr. Jeffery Lebowski could pay for his rug,
while they drink beer.

At The Big Lebowski's mansion, The Dude and Brandt look over the
award wall, hear about the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers, talk
about the rug. As The Dude leaves he chats up a girl who tells him
to blow her toenail polish, and the guy in the pool won't mind, and
it's Bunnie, who will "suck your cock for a thousand dollars but
Brandt can't watch or that'll be $100 extra" and The Dude says
he'll go find a cash machine.
