'Comedy is acting out optimism.'

- Robin Williams

Some actors, scenes and quotes - especially comedy quotes - feel like they're always around. From first seeing Police Squad on late night TV (and for the first 10 minutes not knowing it was a spoof) to Airplane and Naked Gun... and later realising he actually used to be a straight actor in such classics as Forbidden Planet - Leslie Nielsen was one of those guys who was just always - always Stupidly funny. As usual AintitCool have the best article.
