You can see the love in Robin's eyes when he's watching Jonathan. What a beautiful friendship.

Wow. Was the 80s a period when a white guy could make a joke based around a guy being black and people laughed instead of getting defensive?? That's fantastic.

Winter's cracking up after Williams' Egyptian gag, then walking off saying "all this money"... love it

I'm absolutely devastated that these two are gone only a year and a half from each other. Rest in peace.

God, that's the way comedy should be. Both of these guys are missed, especially now in dark times where decades of progress are being rolled back by the soulless.
