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

I can proudly say that I met Mr. Nielsen a few years ago - a nice, nice man. Speaking of nice - "Nice beaver." "Thanks, I just had it stuffed." Have a safe trip, Leslie -

Leslie Nielsen died today at a Florida Hospital. It’s a big building with doctors and patients, but that’s not important right now. RIP.
