Rodney Dangerfield (Born Jacob Cohen, Nov 22, 1921) passed away yesterday after going into a coma after having heart surgery. Rodney’s humour has always made me laugh. One movie of his that I always remember is “Back to School”. The movie is from 1986, and I probably haven’t seen it in 8 years or so, but I distinctly remember laughing my head off at Rodney walking around with lots of confidence with a bunch of teenagers, being obnoxious, making fun them and himself, cracking jokes and one-liners constantly. The guy is hilarious.
Scarbs already posted a bunch of Rodney quotes on his blog, so I’ll post a few others that he didn’t post on his blog.
Rodney Dangerfield quotes:
“A girl phoned me the other day and said “Come on over, there’s nobody home.” I went over. Nobody was home.”
“I went to a fight the other night, and a hockey game broke out.”
“I told my psychiatrist that everyone hates me. He said I was being ridiculous – everyone hasn’t met me yet.”
“My wife is always trying to get rid of me. The other day she told me to put the garbage out. I said to her I already did. She told me to go and keep an eye on it. “
“When I was a kid my parents moved a lot, but I always found them. “
“Last time I tried to make love to my wife nothing happened, so I said to her, ‘What’s the matter, you can’t think of anybody either?’”
“I get no respect”
