Film — Live-action
How many times have I told you not to call me "Urkel?!" My name is Jaleel White! Urkel was a character I played when I was a child!
This man had to be Captain Kangaroo for over thirty fucking years! No scandal, no controversy, drank a lot. You would too. I don't think he knew the show was going to go thirty fucking years. 'Goddamn it, I'm fucking Captain Kangaroo. Thought the fucking gig would last two or three years, I didn't think I'd spend my whole fucking life as Captain Kangaroo! I was an actor, I was in the Actor's Studio, I wanted to do Death of a Salesman, I wanted to play Willy. My God, I'm Captain KANGAROO!'
Then why does my head turn in response to a stranger on the street who calls out that name? Why do I feel a twinge when someone says, “What happened to your ears?” I am not Spock.
Then why do I feel a wonderful warmth when I hear or read a compliment aimed at the Vulcan?
Spock for President reads the bumper sticker on the car in front of me. I’m filled with pride and I smile. I’m not Spock.
But if I’m not, who is? And if I’m not Spock, then who am I?
Princess Leia was famous, and I looked like her.
