I liked him too! They were playing early recordings of his performances on National Public Radio this morning, and he was funny even 40 years ago. One of the true tests of comedy is if people still laugh at stuff you did decades ago. A genuine master of the one liner!
Rodney was also one of my favorites. I loved him in Easy Money, Caddyshack, and Back to School. (A special thanks to S.S. Gordon for introducing me to him back in my college days!) God bless you Rodney.
Some classic Dangerfield One-liners:
A girl phoned me the other day and said..."Come on over, there's nobody home." I went over. Nobody was home.
It's been a rough day. I got up this morning...put on a shirt and abutton fell off. I picked up by briefcase and the handle came off. I'm afraid to go to the bathroom.
When I played in the sandbox the cat kept covering me up.
I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.
My mother never breast fed me. She told me that she only liked me as a friend.
My father carries around the picture of the kid who came with his wallet.
When I was born...the doctor came out to the waiting room and said to my father..."I'm very sorry. We did everything we could...But he still pulled through."
My mother had morning sickness-after I was born.
I remember the time I was kidnapped and they sent a piece of my finger to my father...He said he wanted more proof.
Once when I was lost...I saw a policeman and asked him to help me find my parents. I said to him..."Do you think we'll ever find them?" He said..."I don't know kid...there are so many places they can hide."
My wife made me join a bridge club. I jump off next Tuesday.
I worked in a pet shop and people kept asking how big I'd get.
I went to see my doctor, "Doctor, every morning when I get up and look in the mirror...I feel like throwing up; What's wrong with me?" He said..."I don't know but your eyesight is perfect"
I went to the doctor because I'd swallowed a bottle of sleeping pills. My doctor told me to have a few drinks and get some rest.
He unfortunatley had a very sad life, and his humor was his release. If you ever read his auto biography, you will be blown away from the things he had to overcome. His dad left early and his mom hated him and ignored him. He was subject to molestation/homosexual activity to seek attention he never got at home. He didnt really get along with his kids as well...
One of his last interviews were with Howard Stern, and it was a sad one at that....
