    I couldn't be happier. One of my all time favorites. And his guest spot on Big Bang Theory was so him!

    Certainly about time! He has been one of my favorites since I first saw him on the Ed Sullivan show, doing his telephone routines. A brilliantly funny man.

    I had a friend - make than an associate - who was an absolute riot to listen to on the phone. Here is one side of a real phonecall I once heard,


    (Ernest returns call to vendor's credit manager, Bob)

    "Hi, Bob? Ernest, here! Bob, about these late payments, what can we work out?"

    (Inaudible)

    "Not much? That's good, Bob. That's right to the point. I admire your candor.

    "Bob, things have been going a little slow here recently, but we're anticipating a strong third quarter. I think that, under the circumstances, a substantial partial payment would constitute a showing of good faith on our part. Would you take half?"


    (Inaudible)

    "You wouldn't. Well. lets approach this from another perspective. What would you consider to be an amount that would constitute a good faith effort on our part to resolve this matter?"

    (Inaudible)

    "Now really Bob, I think that 'payment in full' is a bit much under the circumstances..."

    Ernest had no peer on the telephone. He could out charm and outlast anybody.

    The...
    Award for a cameo on BBT? :scratch:

    Sounds like an "Oops, we almost overlooked your lifetime of comedy" award.

    It was hardly a cameo. He was the central plot point for an episode - a heavily promoted guest appearance as well.

    Right, the astronauts and scientists that have appeared were cameos as was Brent Spiner. Newhart was not.
