RIP Robert

[Robert Goulet arrives with Bart at his tree-house Casino]
Robert Goulet: Are you sure this is the Casino? Mr. Burns' Casino? I think I should call my manager...
Nelson: Your manager says for you to shut up!
Robert Goulet: Vera said that?

Not that I want this space to become a clearing house for death notices, but we did lose a big one today due to complications from pulmonary fibrosis: Robert "Messes with your stuff while you're tired" Goulet. Joking aside, he was simply a great performer with a great voice and a sense of humor:

He was pretty much golden in anything he did from award winning roles on Broadway to the bad guy in Naked Gun 2 1/2 and even a cameo appearance in a Weird Al Music video. His final request before having a breathing tube inserted? "Just watch my vocal cords"
