    He used 51 percent of his brain. Clocked.

    To Die For is brilliant and underrated. I had the chance to tell Ms Kidman it was my favorite film of hers.

    He was the rage to talk about in the '80s.

    "Buck Henry wrote ... " started a lot of sentences.

    Multi-talented guy: excellent writer, funny performer and great as Liz Lemon's dad on 30 Rock. RIP.

    Just thinking of some of his original cast SNL skits, like the talk show host who's getting no calls, cracks me up. As for "Get Smart" there probably wasn't another sitcom whose catch phrases so immediately entered the national vocabulary, as how "Sorry about that" became the phrase for things going wrong by troops in the Vietnam War.
