For those who aren't into the whole brevity thing

What if William Shakespeare wrote The Big Lebowski?

CHORUS
Ay, there’s a good one. How fares the Knave?

THE KNAVE
So foul and fair a day I have not seen.

CHORUS
Such a day, I mark thee, whereupon the winter of our discontent is ne’er made glorious summer. A gentleman wiser than myself did say that on some such days, thou exits, pursued by a bear, and on others, the bear exits, pursued by you.

THE KNAVE
By my troth, a good philosophy. Was’t of the Orient?

CHORUS
Nay, far from it. I mark well thy fashion, good Knave.

Enjoy the most excellent comedie and tragical romance of Two Gentlemen of Lebowski.

The best portion of this:

THE KNAVE
Lady Lebowski? Then thou art Bonnie? A merry wife indeed!

BONNIE
And a lady of good housekeeping and agriculture besides, minded to economy and all practicalities. Were thou to bring a gentle cock to my bed-chamber, I might help him to success for ten shillings.

THE KNAVE
Such a lady of talents I have scarcely seen.

BRANDT
Yes, a most forthright jest! Free of spirit and good generosity, she is the nimble nymph of Neptune, and we mark her with good humour.

BONNIE
Free of spirit but ne’er free for flesh. Were I to regale thee with parts of my humour, I would not bid Brandt hear the play ere he paid a shilling himself.

BRANDT
Hark, a marvelous jest; but, I pray you, we dare not tarry. Come, Knave.
