    Why in the stern section? I dunno. I only know him from the Sulu prank call so here it is.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Ricardo Montalban, the Mexican-born actor who became a star in splashy MGM musicals and later as the wish-fulfilling Mr. Roarke in TV's "Fantasy Island," died Wednesday morning at his home, a city councilman said. He was 88. Montalban's death was announced at a city council meeting by president Eric Garcetti, who represents the district where the actor lived. Garcetti did not give a cause of death.

    RIP I guess - "De Plane Boss De Plane," "Smiles, everyone... smiles! " "My dear guests! I am Mr. Roarke, your host. Welcome... to Fantasy Island! "

    At least Mr. Rourke and Tattoo can now be reunited at the big Fantasy Island in the sky. Rest in peace.

    The prank call on George where the pranker was pretending to be Montalban was hilarious.

    "I know Ren and Stimpy..." may be my favorite line... Actually, EVERY line in that call is gold.

    True. The ending is great. "I don't believe this is Ricardo Montalban . . ." Even the way George says that name is great! :D
