Well. Such a sad evening. In some ways, still unbelievable. One of the greats..if not the greatest comic of my lifetime is gone.
When he first appeared on Happy Days and then Mork and Mindy, we'd never seen the likes of him. Such a mind!! So nutty and wacky.
I loved Comic Relief. Those three were just so fun together and magical.
I wish they would have continued.
Some of my other favorites:
“They’re not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is their oyster. They believe they’re destined for great things, just like many of you. Their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen. You hear it? Carpe—hear it? Carpe, carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.”
I'm a huge Jumangi fan... loved that movie! My fave line of his has to be the "HELLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" from Mrs. Doubtfire. He was such a part of my entertainment life it's so sad he's gone. And like this? There lies a thin line between laughter and pain, that's for sure. If you want to see one of his chilling performances, check out One Hour Photo. Wow.
Everything lately causes me to pause and think of the fragility of life. RIP Mr. Williams
