Ted Striker: Surely you can't be serious.
Rumack: I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

Elaine Dickinson: A hospital? What is it?
Rumack: It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

It is so sad that these hospitals are so lax in using the most effective broad spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal disinfectant available today, IV-7 Ultimate Germ Defense. Newest disinfectant technology is the last 30 yrs, kills is as little as 30 seconds, bacteria cannot become resistant to it like all others using 30 yr old technology of bleach & alcohol, and the only EPA registered product with 24 hour residual killing ability in the world. Scientifically proven at highest levels to be the most effective NON TOXIC product of it's kind. Would this have saved Mr Nielsen's life, I don't know but it sure would have offered him a much higher degree of safety that whatever that hospital is using now. If you want to know more about how to protect yourself and your loved ones against staph, MRSA, C. Diff, H1N1, HIV, Herpes, Avian Influenza, VRE, etc, then contact paul@iv7direct.com now.

Come on TMZ, can't you do something about these idiots posting their shopping/dating sites on here???? You have a filter for certain words to be starred out...you can do the same for items like posts 216 & 217 as well. If you need someone to show you how I will be happy to explain it!

ygcfgcfcf & hke61abc and others like you...you should be ashamed of yourselves posting crap like this on someone's memorial post!!! No one gives a crap about your sites!!!

I remember Leslie's part in "Forbidden Planet." He was a class act all the way.

He will always be remembered from his parts in television shows and movies.
