Oh, we have only scratched the surface of Lebowski quotes. There's one in that flick for just about any occasion. :D

Scriptcity is having a sale.
I will repeat in all caps...
SCRIPTCITY IS HAVING A SALE.
Now, I will repeat in all caps and an exclamation point...
SCRIPTCITY IS HAVING A SALE!

I am getting sick of waiting around. If you want in on the previously mentioned titles or you want others...
PLEASE ACT QUICKLY.

Wow, there's a sucker born every minute. This applies to both the person who bought the item for full price, and you for thinking I would actually drop a deuce and willingly fall into it. :D

Seriously, though, that boggles my mind. I'm tempted to post a listing for oceanfront property in Arizona, just to see if the buyer bites.

Well, you said it :)

And to be fair, whether you agree with the price or not, this person was actually selling something tangible, unlike I assume your AZ offer...

The market bears what the market bears, my friend. And the market has spoken.

Not so much the market as this one individual. If I give you a thousand dollars for a pet rock, does that mean all pet rocks are worth a thousand dollars? No -- it means I'm a chump who coughed up a cool grand for a pebble with googly eyes glued to it. One guy paying an outrageous sum isn't indicative of the market, it's indicative of him.

My AZ offer stands and is as real as some poor sucker believes it to be -- much as the ebay lister convinced some poor sucker that script was worth a thousand dollars LOL

I disagree. If you're selling something, all you need is one person. With that argument, you could take it as far as you want.

"Well, only ten people were willing to pay that so it's not indicative of the market..."

Nope. Whether one person or a thousand, the market exists or it doesn't. It clearly existed here.

Wasn't me though. What, you think I'm frickin' crazy :)

You? Not at all. The guy who bought the listing? Yup. But it could just be that I'm an admittedly cheap bastard and can't imagine paying that much money for a new suit, let alone the script for a cruddy slasher flick.

I’m torn between an individual getting what they can in the open market vs stupid pricing. For example, I have two original drafts of “Corvette Summer” (when it was called Stingray). I could see selling them for a couple hundred bucks.

But if I were the individual on eBay selling scripts at ridiculous prices (one “Taxi” script for $300 what?!), I’d price each one at $675. I don’t know why, but it pisses me off each time I see one of his listings.

The German F13th museum bought it after I gave them the heads up....and for obvious reasons they don't scan or share them :(
