Fist full of travellers cheques
It has been mentioned, but I'll always remember him as the unhinged cafe owner in this Comic Strip classic.
Keep calm, Marie.
That's an awfully big bus. There could be six people in there.
Jesus! If they only buy coffee, it'll be enough to pay the ground rent.

Cafe owner: Two steaks coming right up.

Rocky Horror Picture show?!?!?!?
I thought Barry Bostwick played Brad Majors in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".

Sad to hear. RIP and condolences to his family.
