Comic Rodney Dangerfield Dies In L.A. At Age 82

Wed Oct 06, 2004 9:17 am

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rodney Dangerfield (news), the goggle-eyed comic famed for his self-deprecating one-liners and signature phrase "I can't get no respect," died on Tuesday at age 82, his publicist said.

In an interview right before his heart surgery, he was asked how long he would be in the hospital. This isn't a direct quote, but very close. He said, "If everything goes well, about a week. If it doesn't, about an hour and a half!"

Rodney, you have made me laugh for years. May you now have peace.

RIP Rodney.

My favorite Rodney Dangerfield move has to be "Back to School". Truly a great movie.

Farewell to a class Act.
RIP Rodney

Well, all I can say is that we have indeed lost a fantastic actor as well as a great person!!!

I recently bought the movie "Arthur" because of the humor......and believe me I have watched it several times. He truly was a "great one"....and will be dearly missed!!!

Ok GulfstreamGuy, Caddyshack was the first place where I can recall seeing him (Watched film when it came out without my parents permission  Laugh out loud )

Got a question for you and this not to dog Rodney in any way.

But who was the better comedian in that film, Rodney Dangerfield or Ted Knight?

This is certainly a sad loss for the comedy world...Caddyshack is up there as one of my favorite comedies of all time.
But who was the better comedian in that film, Rodney Dangerfield or Ted Knight?
Thats a tough one...while they both had great performances, I'm leaning towards Dangerfield. He had so many great lines and gags in the movie. Some of my favorite parts were when he drove his car onto the tee with the horn playing "in the money" and his golf bag that had a radio and tv built in. "So what...let's dance!" Smile

RIP Mr. Dangerfield. He helped many an act get off the ground by putting them onstage, helping them get HBO specials, putting them on his tours. His generosity and mentoring probably brought him more respect than most others in his profession will ever get.

Plus, he was damned funny.

Caddyshack wouldn't have been so funny, IMHO, without the comic genius of Rodney Dangerfield. As for who was funnier, Ted Knight or Rodeny, I think they played off each other's strengths to give two fantastic performances!

RIP, sir. May you now know respect!

RIP Rodney. You will be sorely missed. You'll always live on however. Your specials on HBO, the comedians that you inspired, and the memories you created from various TV appearances.

As some of you may know, Rodney starred in "Ladybugs" with Jonathan Brandis way back when. Not too long ago Mr. Brandis killed himself and now Rodney is gone. I wonder who's next... Honestly, I never was a fan of either actor, but I do find it a little sad.  Crying

On NYC's NBC station, they showed the sign at the Broadway theater where "42nd Street" is playing: "Rest in Peace Rodney Dangerfield. Make G-d Laugh".

I completely agree.. Ted and Rodney were comedy geniuses against each other.

From Caddyshack..

Al Czervik : What're we, waiting for these guys? HEY WHITEY, Where's your hat?
Judge Smails : Do you mind, sir. I'm trying to tee off.
Al Czervik : I'll bet you a hundred bucks you slice it into the woods.
Judge Smails : Gambling is illegal at Bushwood sir, and I never slice.
[Swings club, slices ball into woods]
Judge Smails : DAMN.
Al Czervik : OK, you can owe me.
Judge Smails : I owe you nothing.

(After having a terrible first part of the tournament..)
"Are you kidding? I should have stayed home and played with MYSELF!"

At the clubhouse for dinner, to the waitress..
"Hey, doll. Could you scare up another round for our table over here? And tell the cook this is low grade dogfood. I've had better food at the ballgame, you know? This steak still has marks from where the jockey was hitting it."

"Last time I saw a mouth like that, it had a hook in it. "

"Oh, this your wife, huh? A lovely lady. Hey baby, you must've been something before electricity. "

[after accidentally hitting Judge Smails in the crotch with his golf ball] "I should have yelled "two".

I also have to mention "Ladybugs"

"Matthew and I are getting along better, I mean for Christmas I got him a CTA (Switzerland)">BB-gun and he got me a sweater with a bullseye on it, he's got a sick sense of humor but we are gettin' along"
