When I was a kid my uncle showed me one of the funniest movies I had ever seen, till this day it's still one of my favorites. That movie was The Naked Gun with that sweet old man with a kind goofy face that reminded me of a funny relative. A man that you would not think started his acting career as a dramatic actor, talk about a fish out of water. Yeah his movies where a little corny but a great comedic actor he was, I will always appreciate his humor and his mission to make people laugh. I will always remember the joy his naked gun movies brought to me and my family not to mention airplane, and don't you dare call him Shirley!

I was so sad to hear of his passing especially on my birthday, but it was nice to hear he was surrounded by his love ones. A person that made it his job to entertain and bring smiles to peoples faces is worthy of so much more than my little recognition. In no way is this an article I know, but just a little remembrance and appreciation of one of my favorite comedians. Thank you, Mr. Nielsen for your wonderful humor and all the laughs.

Here are two of my Favorite quotes from part one.

Frank: It's the same old story. Boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girl dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day.

Frank: A good cop - needlessly cut down by some cowardly hoodlums.

Ed: No way for a man to die.

Frank: No... you're right, Ed. A parachute not opening... that's a way to die. Getting caught in the gears of a combine... having your nuts bit off by a Laplander, that's the way I wanna go.

Two more great quotes from part two.

Frank: I'm single! I love being single! I haven't had this much sex since I was a Boy Scout leader! I mean at the time I was dating a lot.

Lt. Frank Drebin: I'm sorry I can't be more optimistic, Doctor, but we've got a long road ahead of us. It's like having sex. It's a painstaking and arduous task that seems to go on and on forever, and just when you think things are going your way, nothing happens.

Here are three more of my Favorite quotes from this film.

Frank: "You might end up dead" is my middle name.

Frank:Like a blind man at an orgy, I was going to have to feel my way through.

Frank:Cheer up, Ed. This is not goodbye. It's just I won't ever see you again.

Dick Steele, Agent WD-40: I'm going in there.

Veronique Ukrinsky, Agent 3.14: That's crazy!

Dick Steele, Agent WD-40: No, crazy is walking down the street with half a cantaloupe on your head, muttering "I'm a hamster, I'm a hamster."
