Profile: Walter Sobchak

I've actually written to a top movie critic about this theory, and he said it makes sense. So there!

Suggestion by Matt from Virginia.


  1. Do you guys remember The Rocky And Bullwinkle Show? Created by Alex Anderson, Bill Scott and especially Jay Ward? Well, were they Jewish?

  2. Mrs. Yakov is a big fan of Rocky and Bullwinkle, so yeah, we have heart for the show. Sadly, it looks like Anderson, Scott, and Ward were not Jewish (and sadly it seems they've all passed on, as well). But at least we'll always have this:

  3. Why such a low K score?

  4. He was dog-sitting his ex-wife's dog!

  5. He's not jewish! It was stated during one scene that he's a Polish non-jew, and that his wife or whatever is jewish.

  6. Walter Sobchak: I'm saying, I see what you're getting at, Dude, he kept the money. My point is, here we are, it's shabbas, the sabbath, which I'm allowed to break only if it's a matter of life or death...
    The Dude: Will you come off it, Walter? You're not even fucking Jewish, man.
    Walter Sobchak: What the fuck are you talkin' about?
    The Dude: Man, you're fucking Polish Catholic...
    Walter Sobchak: What the fuck are you talking about? I converted when I married Cynthia! Come on, Dude!
    The Dude: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
    Walter Sobchak: And you know this!
    The Dude: Yeah, and five fucking years ago you were divorced.
    Walter Sobchak: So what are you saying? When you get divorced you turn in your library card? You get a new license? You stop being Jewish?
    The Dude: It's all a part of your sick Cynthia thing, man. Taking care of her fucking dog. Going to her fucking synagogue. You're living in the fucking past.
    Walter Sobchak: Three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax...
    Walter Sobchak: You're goddamn right I'm living in the fucking past!

  7. Seriously, why such a low K score?

  8. The K Score works in strange and mysterious ways...
