Leslie Nielsen made numerous movies. Several were great. "Airplane!" ranks  as one of the best comedies ever thanks, in large part, to Nielsen's brilliant, deadpan performance as Dr. Rumack.

Dr. Rumack: Can you fly this plane, and land it?

Ted Striker: Surely, you can't be serious.

Dr. Rumack: I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

Yes, Nielsen will shirley be missed.
