    [Jane climbs a ladder] Frank(Leslie Nielsen): Nice beaver! Jane(Priscilla Presley): [producing a stuffed beaver] Thank you. I just had it stuffed.


    What a pisser.

    Airplane and the Naked Gun movies were my absolute favorite growing up.




    To the Nielson Family,
    Thanks for the many years of sharing Leslie's talents with the world. He was a very distinguished actor who seemed to always play the wealthy, worldly type. Back in the day,I remember seeing him play in a lot of episodic TV. It was a welcome surprise to get to
    experience his humor in the 1980 film Airplane.Playing the role of Dr. Ramuck, an airline passenger says to his character, "Surely,
    you can't be serious", Leslie's character says, "I am serious,and don't call me Shirley". The gift of his acting abilities will always be a reminder of this talented performer who touched our hearts.



    I just showed my son the classic strike call from Naked Gun yesterday. He will be remembered! Condolences to his family.
