Dr. Alan Rumack (Leslie Nielsen): “Can you fly this plane and land it?”
Ted Striker (Robert Hays): “Surely you cant be serious?”
Dr. Alan Rumack (Leslie Nielsen): “I am serious. And dont call me Shirley.”
[famous dialogue from Airplane! (1980), which boosted his career]
An amazing actor and comic. America’s favorite Canadian goofball. He will definitely be missed. I cant believe that he’s gone. If anything, there has been plenty of movies that came out with similar roles that he played, but no one can do it better than this man can. He will never be forgotten. Comedians and actors must pay homage to this talented legend.
