    He made one of the funniest sports quotes ever:

    "I went to a fight the other night and a hockey game broke out" :D

    RIP

    Here's the story

    Rodney Dangerfield dead at 82
    Tuesday, October 5, 2004 Posted: 8:43 PM EDT (0043 GMT)

    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Rodney Dangerfield, the bug-eyed comic whose self-deprecating one-liners brought him stardom in clubs, television and movies and made his lament "I don't get no respect" a catchphrase, died Tuesday. He was 82.

    Dangerfield, who fell into a coma after undergoing heart surgery, died at 1:20 p.m., said publicist Kevin Sasaki. Dangerfield had a heart valve replaced August 25 at the University of California, Los Angeles, Medical Center.

    Sasaki said in a statement that Dangerfield suffered a small stroke after the operation and developed infectious and abdominal complications. But in the past week he had emerged from the coma, the publicist said.

    Clad in a black suit, red tie and white shirt with collar that seemed too tight, Dangerfield convulsed audiences with lines such as: "When I was born, I was so ugly that the doctor slapped my mother," "When I started in show business, I played one club that was so far out my act was reviewed in Field and Stream," and "Every time I get in an elevator, the operator says the same thing to me: 'Basement?"'

    In a 1986 interview, he explained the origin of his "respect" trademark:

    "I had this joke: 'I played hide and seek; they wouldn't even look for me.' To make it work better, you look for something to put in front of it: I was so poor, I was so dumb, so this, so that. I thought, 'Now what fits that joke?' Well, 'No one liked me' was all right. But then I thought, a more profound thing would be, 'I get no respect."'

    Dangerfield is survived by his wife, Joan, and two children from a previous marriage.

    I hate to hear this... he was one of my all-time favorites...

    I was fortunate enough to see him live... he was a master at dealing with hecklers...

    My favorite Rodney line... I was at one of his concerts... someone from the audience yells out "Hey Rodney... how is your sex life"... Rodney responded... "My sex life... geez... it's like shooting pool with a rope"....

    He paved the way for a lot of comics... RIP Rodney... you will be missed...

    "Last night I came home, I walked in the house, I picked up the extension. My wife was having phone sex with some guy. I told the guy, "Don't let her fool you, she's faking it."

    "I took my wife out for our anniversary. I toasted her and said, here's to the best woman a man ever had. The waiter joined me."

    The guy was pure genius. Sad day.

    Oh, my wife loves vacations. The other night she told me, "I wanna go someplace I've never been before." I took her to a men's room.

    Oh, last week was a rough week. I noticed my gums were shrinking. I was brushing my teeth with Preparation H.

    I'm getting old. I got no sex life. I get tired just holding up the magazine. At my age, I like to get sex over quickly. Then I can get to the nap.

    I know the best way to get girls. I hang out at prisons and wait for parolees.

    What a childhood I had, why, when I took my first step, my old man tripped me!

    when I go to a nude beach, I always take a ruler with me. Yeah, just in case I have to prove something.
