    Tessio doesn't have to get in the car just yet.

    Happy 86th Birthday, Detective Fish

    People have assumed he's dead for about 25 years. I was a little afraid when I clicked on the thread title.

    The scene with him and Duvall at the end of I is a classic.

    Tessio: can you get me off the hook? For old times sake?

    Tom: can't do it, Sally.

    Me too. Definitely one of the best dead-pan comedians ever.

    Great to know Tessio does NOT sleep with the fishes. But he did sell out to Barzini.

    He's on Conan O'Brien's show all the time. Always making fun of himself and his age and the fact that he's not yet dead, which is cool. A few years ago, when Duvall was a guest, they did another version of that scene from Godfather. Funny stuff.

    In the late 70s I had a crush on Lynda Carter (aka Wonder Woman).

    When her show was taken off the air it was replaced by . . . Fish.

    I always held a grudge against Abe Vigoda for that.

    Yeah, it's a funny bit.

    Abe Vigoda was funny on Barney Miller. Fish was a sappy bit of tripe mainly focused on the wife and kids (tho it was gutsy for a TV show to make Bernice, the wife, that unattractive)

    She was one ugly bitch but for she loved sex.
