Sundries

First note: happy that the debates weren't as "white glove" as I was afraid they would be. Didn't get to hear everything, but I'll be hitting the transcripts later. phfeenikz , Cheney isn't a robot, I've decided: he's a cyborg made to look like one of us. But he isn't. One of us. He ISN'T.

Second: Rodney Dangerfield died today. I love him. He brought me Jim Carrey. He also gave me my two most favorite movie quotes next to "It puts the lotion in the basket."


Setting: Pro Shop of Country Club
Al: (to counter man) I'll take one of these, and three of them, give me nine boxes of these orange balls, a box of tees, and six of them... Woah. Take a look at that hat. That's the kind of hat they give you for free for buying a bowl of soup.

Judge: (wearing the hat looks over and looks quickly away.)

Al: Oh, well, looks good on you.

Second favorite is Al dancing with Judge Smail's wife against her wishes and says to her in a seductive manner (for him, at least): How'd you like to earn 10 bucks the haaard way?

Tell me your favorite (or least favorite) memories of Rodney. I loved him. Greatest one-liner since Henny Youngman.


My mother never breast fed me, she told me she only liked me as a friend

One year they asked me to be poster boy - for birth control.

I went to a gay bar, they wanted proof of sex so I showed them, they said it wasn't enough

They say 'love thy neighbor as thy self' , what am I supposed to do jerk him off too ?

If it weren't for pick-pockets, I'd have no sex life at all.

I once went out with this girl, she was no bargain either, she showed up with pigtails under her arms.

And one of my all-time faves: She was so ugly that she looks like she came second in a hatchet fight.

Hee hee! I edited my post to add more one-liners. We can thank him for Jerry Seinfeld, too.

Rodney Dangerfield was my first (and so far, OK, only) random celebrity encounter. I was in the lobby of Merv Griffin's Beverly Hilton, I was with a group of high school students who were going to be contestants on Teen Jeopardy! I didn't have any idea who he was, but some of the other kids did. I think he and his wife had been having dinner at Trader Vic's, and they'd both had a bit to drink. She was very enthusiastic about us being game show contestants (and kind of shrill about it -- kept going Rodney! These kids are on JEOPARDY! They're so SMART!!) Also, one kid had some kind of freeze dried frog he'd gotten in Mexico and was carrying it around as a good luck charm. Mrs. D thought it was worth a big WOW! and almost stuck it in his face. Rodney barely seemed to notice we were there, but he was nice enough and gave us all autographs. So that's my Rodney story. I still don't think I've seen any of his movies except bits of "Back to School" on Com Central.

I hope some people have better memories than that!

I have serious Karabair Icon love.
I love that encounter story. You mean you haven't seen Caddyshack?? It's worth it if only for Ted Knight as the stuffy judge, and Bill Murray's "Dali Lama" speech.

I waited on John Ritter in 92, and barely recognized him. He brought a stack of books and ate soup. He tipped me 20 on a 7 dollar tab. I waited on Dave Thomas (of Wendy's fame) and he was weird and a skin-flint. I worked the day Oliver Stone and Keven Costner came in (when working next door on JFK) and they were assholes. DIdn't like anything, did tip well, made everyone dance for them. I like to hear about celebrities just being quiet and normal.

I FORGOT YOU WERE ON TEEN JEOPORDY!! (Sue told me.) You fucking rock. Didja know?

Quotes.

For Cheney:

Listen! And understand! That Terminator is out there. It can't be bargained with! It can't be reasoned with! It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead!

Rodney Dangerfield:

My wife was afraid of the dark... then she saw me naked and now she's afraid of the light.
My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.
I'm taking Viagra and drinking prune juice - I don't if I'm coming or going
My uncle's dying wish - he wanted me on his lap... He was in the electric chair.

Holy Shit!! Your icon scares the bejeebus out of me.
Cheney: is it wrong that I hear the creepy heartbeat/pulsing music from The Terminator when he appears? I almost thought that he would turn his hand into a long spike and run it through the Senator. Blerrgh. He is so condescending...

Rodney: somebody step on a duck?
I was so ugly, when I was born the doctor slapped my mother.

Re: Holy Shit!! Your icon scares the bejeebus out of me.
It's too bad that I can't use the whole pic for the icon. It was cropped from a photo of me with my arm around my mother. I laughed hysterically for about 10 minutes after creating it. Photoshop is sooo fun.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
