Very sad news, and a huge loss to the entertainment industry. Sure he was slowing down a bit but I always looked forward to seeing and hearing him when he was on the tube.

Some of my favorite lines:

From Back to School:

To his English Professor, "Well why don't you call me when you have no class?"

The scene with Sam Kinison is priceless as well.

From Caddyshack:

"Geez that's an awful hat, a man who buys a hat like that should get a free bowl of soup with it" To Ted Knight, already wearing the hat: "Oh, but it looks great on you though" as he's rolling his eyes emphatically!

Ah, great stuff, and much more where that came from.

Anyone else care to add your favs?

"First of all, you never had me. Secondly, if you did have me, it wouldn't be in a cab."

He will be missed. A true comedic genius.

Anyone ever see him in the movie "Ladybugs"? It was a reasonably cute movie where he played the coach of a girls soccer team and was under alot of pressure from his boss to win at all costs. He is under such pressure that he asks his girlfriend's son to dress as a girl and play for the team.

One night, everything was coming unraveled, and he was drowning his sorrows in a bar, when the bartender persuades him to tell him what's troubling him, with the kicker that he's heard it all before so not to be shy.

Rodney gives in, and belts out:

"I had my girlfriend's son dress up like a girl and made him play with me." (obvious details left out that is was on the soccer team)

To which the bartender promptly throws him out in the street.

Last word, Rodney's line, "Well, at least I beat the check!"

here are some...

Rodney Dangerfield's Best One-Liners

I was so poor growing up... If I wasn't born a boy... I'd have nothing to play with.

A girl phoned me the other day and said... "Come on over, there's nobody home." I went over. Nobody was home.

During sex, my girlfriend always wants to talk to me. Just the other night she called me from a hotel.

One day as I came home early from work, I saw a guy jogging naked. I said to the guy, "Hey buddy, why are you doing that?" He said, "Because you came home early."

It's been a rough day. I got up this morning, put on a shirt and a button fell off. I picked up my briefcase, and the handle came off. I'm afraid to go to the bathroom.

I was such an ugly kid. When I played in the sandbox the cat kept covering me up.

I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.

I was such an ugly baby. My mother never breast fed me. She told me that she only liked me as a friend.

I'm so ugly. My father carries around the picture of the kid who came with his wallet.

When I was born, the doctor came out to the waiting room and said to my father, I'm very sorry. We did everything we could. But he pulled through.

I'm so ugly, my mother had morning sickness after I was born.

I remember the time I was kidnapped and they sent a piece of my finger to my father. He said he wanted more proof.

Once when I was lost I saw a policeman, and asked him to help me find my parents. I said to him, "Do you think we'll ever find them?" He said, "I don't know kid, there are so many places they can hide."

My wife made me join a bridge club. I jump off next Tuesday.

I'm so ugly I worked in a pet shop, and people kept asking how big I'd get.

I went to see my doctor. "Doctor, every morning when I get up and look in the mirror I feel like throwing up; What's wrong with me?" He said, "I don't know but your eyesight is perfect."

I went to the doctor because I'd accidentally swallowed a whole bottle of sleeping pills. My, doctor told me to have a few drinks and get some rest.

He will be missed. Didn't he have a wife in her 20s or low 30s? She's wealthy now.

I saw him live at the Valley Forge Music Fair in Devon, PA a loooooong time ago. In fact it was when Mondale was running for president with Geraldine Ferraro. I remember him making jokes about them. The Music Fair is long gone and is now a Wendy's, Waldens book store, and a supermarket. Times change. I laughed all night.
