Everybody Loves Peter

Emmy-Award winning actor Peter Boyle passed away yesterday at the tender age of 71 from heart disease.

After "Friends" finished its run, I got into "Everybody Loves Raymond" earlier this year and I love the show. The only character that would make me laugh with any line he said and would never annoy me was Peter's character: Frank Barone.

Here is to you, Mr. Boyle. HOLY CRAP we're gonna miss you. =)

Memorable quotes

  • "Holy crap!"
  • [to Ray] You're even dumber than I tell people.
  • [To his wife] "You're a trophy wife? What contest in hell did I win?"
  • [Commenting on Ray's TV appearance] "I could've eaten a box of Alpha Bits and crapped a better interview."
  • "You don't know a monkey wrench from a monkey's @$$, do you son?"
  • [To his sons] "Hello, ladies!"

Aw, that's sad. I was just re-watching The Actor Studio interview of the whole cast that I Tivo-ed last year, when they were shooting their last episode. Peter Boyle is sweet guy, which is opposite of Frank :) I was just looking up ELR on YouTube last week too. I'm sure the cast is devastated.
