[[GraveHumor His epitaph reads:]] ''[[ToiletHumor "Let 'er Rip."]]'' Because that's how he rolls. When interviewed, he asked what he would want inscribed on his gravestone, and he answered with this.

* ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' ''Film/{{Airplane}}'', where the whole joke to his character was meant to be that he was a serious actor bringing all his chops to utterly absurd lines. Naturally, this is a bit lost today.
