  1. Le couple de français au restaurant mangeant littéralement "avec" leur chat ha ha ha ha… celle-là je vais la raconter à mes deux chats !

  2. Going on 5 years without him,
    We miss you and love you Robin.
    Watching you is wonderful and heartbreaking at the same time.

    Godspeed amongst the stars.

  3. Without a doubt one of the best interviews ever. They were at the top of their game that night. I could binge watch them all night long.

  4. I miss Robin so much. Can't explain why his death hit me so hard. It felt like I lost a family member. Whatever the reason, these moments of him feel like home movies. We're thinking of you, oh Captain, my Captain…

  5. The best interview in the history of television is when Robin was on Inside the Actor's Studio in 2001. 😉

  6. In the Jungle, you must wait – Til the dice 🎲 read 5 or 8. Well since we lost one die let’s send The Rock to go find him like on the “Rundown”
