Leslie Nielsen has died and the world is less funny somehow. I of course, know him as Lt. Frank Drebin from the Naked Gun series. Years later, I realized he was also in Airplane! where as Dr. Rumack he uttered his most famous line:
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.
Ahhh… classic. Good laughs too. Thanks Mr. Nielsen! Godspeed.
