Leslie Nielsen - A Tribute to a Great Comedian !

The Canadian-born actor, who starred in dozens of comedic and dramatic roles over his 60-year career in film and television, died at a hospital near his Fort Lauder-dale home after a battle with pneumonia.

Nielsen was known for his deadpan, slap-stick comedy in a number of police and detective spoofs, most notably three "Naked Gun" films. Here, we look at some of Nielsen's greatest lines & Quotes:

 "Wrongfully Accused" (1998), as Detective Ryan Harrison
Ryan Harrison: Your dog sure has a surprised look on his face.
Lauren: That's because you're looking at his butt.
Ryan Harrison: Uh, then he's certainly not going to enjoy that treat I just fed to him.
Ryan Harrison: Your lies are like bananas. They come in big yellow bunches.
Ryan Harrison: Women and me are like water and fire: wet and flammable.

"Spy Hard" (1996), as Dick Steele, Agent WD-40 
Dick Steele, Agent WD-40: Operator, get me Washington.
Operator: George?
Dick Steele, Agent WD-40: D.C.

Veronique Ukrinsky, Agent 3.14: Have a nice flight, and I wish you adieux.
Dick Steele, Agent WD-40: Thank you, but I am quite satisfied with the do I have.

"Dracula, Dead and Loving It" (1995) as Count Dracula
Lover at Picnic: Would you care for some wine?
Dracula: I never drink wine ... oh, what the hell. Let me try it.

"Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult" (1994) as Lt. Frank Drebin
Lt. Frank Drebin: Like a midget at a urinal, I was going to have to stay on my toes.
Lt. Frank Drebin: Cheer up, Ed. This is not goodbye. It's just I won't ever see you again.
Lt. Frank Drebin: Well ... We shot a lot of people together. It's been great. But today I retire, so if I do any shooting now, it'll have to be within the confines of my own home. Hopefully, an intruder and not an in-law, like at my bachelor party.

"The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear" (1991) as Lt. Frank Drebin

Lt. Frank Drebin: Oh, it's all right. I'm sure that we can handle this situation maturely, just like the responsible adults that we are. Isn't that right, Mr. ... Poopy Pants?
Lt. Frank Drebin: Looks like the cows have come home to roost.
Quentin Hapsburg: I don't recall your name on the guest list.
Lt. Frank Drebin: That's OK. I sometimes go by my maiden name.
Lt. Frank Drebin: [describing Jane; voice-over] I couldn't believe it was her. It was like a dream. But there she was, just as I remembered her. That delicately beautiful face. And a body that could melt a cheese sandwich from across the room. And breasts that seemed to say ... "Hey! Look at these!" She was the kind of woman who made you want to drop to your knees and thank God you were a man! She reminded me of my mother, all right. No doubt about it.
Ed Hocken: Frank, snap out of it! You're looking at her like she was your mother for Christ's sake!

"The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!" (1988) as Lt. Frank Drebin
Lt. Frank Drebin: Jane, since I've met you, I've noticed things that I never knew were there before... birds singing, dew glistening on a newly formed leaf, stoplights.
Lt. Frank Drebin: Protecting the queen's safety is a task that is gladly accepted by Police Squad. No matter how silly the idea of having a queen might be to us, as Americans, we must be gracious and considerate hosts.
Jane: How about a rain check?
Lt. Frank Drebin: Well, let's just stick to dinner.
Lt. Frank Drebin: [narrating as he walks through town] The attempt on Nordberg's life left me shaken and disturbed, and all the questions kept coming up over and over again, like bubbles in a case of club soda. Who was this character in the hospital? And why was he trying to kill Nordberg? And for whom? Did Ludwig lie to me? I didn't have any proof, but somehow, I didn't entirely trust him either. Why was the 'I Luv You' not listed in Ludwig's records? And if it was, did he know about it? And if he didn't, who did? And where the hell was I?
"Airplane!" (1980) as Dr. Rumack
Rumack: The life of everyone on board depends upon just one thing: finding someone back there who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner.
Rumack: Can you fly this plane, and land it?
Ted Striker: Surely you can't be serious.
Rumack: I am serious ... and don't call me Shirley.

Rumack: You'd better tell the captain we've got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital.
Elaine Dickinson: A hospital? What is it?
Rumack: It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.
May You Rest In Peace !
