* A very early one was his appearance on the Carol Burnett show, when he starred as a strange man attempting to console Carol as a grieving widow at a funeral. After taping the sketch, Robin asked Carol if they could do it again, and the result was even funnier.
-->''[Original line, to mourners waiting to talk to Carol]'' I wouldn't wait, I'm gonna be here a while.
-->''[Ad-libbed version, same part]'' I wouldn't wait, I'm gonna be here a while. There's some coffee in the embalming room, but it tastes funny, be careful.

* His guest spot on ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' is widely considered one of the show's greatest episodes. Williams notably made the usually straight-faced Colin Mochrie [[{{Corpsing}} corpse]], which only one other guest star could do--Richard Simmons.

-->I think that'd be an honest GPS. It'd go, (''Scottish accent'') "There's your turn! You fucking missed it, you idiot! Take one more left turn! Take another left turn! Deja fucking vu!"

*** That bit is now rather HarsherInHindsight, thanks to the bit about the GPS placidly telling him to make a right turn when he was halfway across the Golden Gate Bridge:

* As related by BillyCrystal at the 2014 EmmyAwards, the incident when he was with Robin and WhoopiGoldberg for an event at a baseball stadium, and Robin, completely unfamiliar with the sport, became the odd one out in their conversation. Then Billy gave him the idea to make up an impression of a Russian baseball player in Soviet Russia. Now THAT he can do.
