Jeff Conaway died today of a drug overdose. Alan Sepinwall had a nice piece that considered Conway's career. He attached a couple of key clips from Taxi. Including this classic, classic bit:
I am amused to see that Alex in this scene espouses a problem I became familiar with once I started teaching graduate students: "What am I worried about? Two things: that they will not issue a license for him to drive in this city or that they will."
I am sorry that Conaway's life spiraled down from here. At least, we have youtube to remember him by.
