This man deserves his own thread. But since Im not ready to do that yet, Ill just leave this here. Godspeed and RIP, good sir. 98 years is one helluva life...really hoping to make one of your final wishes come true soon enough.

But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity. - Martin Luther King, Jr

Reiner had such a great mind for comedy, and certainly the talent. Miss him already.

Im going back to When Harry Met Sally for this one. It's one of the few date or chick movies I enjoyed, and I mean, Meg Ryan, cmon.
This is the famous fake orgasm scene in which Meg .... well... fakes it, a a diner.
Billy Crystal is terrific with his expressions. At first he is concerned, but then he realizes what she is doing and that he's going to have to settle in and absorb the whole ride. The ambience in the restaurant slowly dies down as she becomes more and more frenzied and everyone begins to to stare and gawk and when it's all done, she returns to normal as if , well, she faked it lol


This clip seems really benign now but at the time, it really was poignant in more ways than one because that was a topi of the times.
And as a young 20 something male, I of course had to play it off but knowing damn well I was Billy Crystal. Lucky my SO didnt shame me like that, but that scene still stuck with me.

Happy Birthday, good sir...still can't believe all these years later you're gone. I could pick any number of funny moments, but I think I'll go with my favorite drama scene with him instead.

always a good choice.
It's so sad how his journey ended. I cant imagine facing the choices he had.

My cousin and I saw this film about a hundred and fifty thousand times when it came out.
So many great scenes but this one resonated because it is such a fuck your buddy then deal with the consequences kinda thing that we thrived on.
"Can't spend your whole life worrying about your mistakes. You fucked up, you trusted us. hey, make the best of it."

LOL  :D

"My advice to you is to start drinking heavily."
"Better listen to him Flounder. He's pre-med."

I don't know how often I uttered that phrase during drinking nights in college, but it was a lot. Damn I love that scene and that movie...great choice.
