RIP Rodney Dangerfield

October 5th, 2004 (09:38 pm)

The comedian is dead at 82. He'd gone into the hospital for brain surgery last month, and never came out. He knew there was a good chance of that, and even joked about it: "If it goes well, I'll be in for a few weeks. If it doesn't, I'll be in for about an hour and a half."

He was in longer than an hour and a half; by some reports, he was in a coma for some considerable time before the end.

There are many classic Rodney lines -- Back to School brought us the moment when Rodney stumbled across a co-ed in the shower ("I'm sorry, honey! I didn't see anything! Not a thing!" [pause. peeks again.] "You're perfect."), and everyone remembers his signature line, "I don't get no respect" -- but for my money, there's no topping the last line of Caddyshack: "Hey, everybody! We're all gonna get laid!"

Oh... sad.
Hadn't realized he was so old.

BTW, is it okay to give Dad your number?
