He once hit on me at an airport,

I was moving to LA from CT and left from JFK and he bought me McDonalds then invited me to the first class lounge. It was insane, even though I resisted when we got on the plane he sent me back a first class meal, so he turned out just to be a nice guy

Gosh, I remember the show $1.98. My brother and I would sing the song and pretend to cry like the ladies did when they won the pageant and were given a bouquet of carrots and onions (instead of flowers) and Rip would hand them $1.98, as he sang, "Youuuu've wooonnnn a dollar ninnnettyyyy eiiiggghhhttt." It was great. These beautiful women holding their carrots and onions in their arms crying over winning a buck ninety-eight. Siggghhhhh. Those were the days.......
