“I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.”- Robin Williams (1951 - 2014)
The opening scene with the street merchant was completely unscripted. Robin Williams was brought into the sound stage and was asked to stand behind a table that had several objects on it and a bed sheet covering them all. The animators asked him to lift the sheet, and without looking take an object from the table and describe it in character. Much of the material in that recording session was not appropriate for a Disney film.
"Combination hookah and coffee maker, also makes julienne fries! It will not break! It will not- …. it broke."
that line used to just kill me as a kid and now it’s better because it was unscripted and he probably broke the prop

I told you. All the men in my life die.
I’m not a man in your life, okay? You said so yourself. I’m a little shitpot.
God I fucking love her.
It’s hilarious that non-Americans on Tumblr are all like “OMG DENNY’S TUMBLR MAKES ME WISH I LIVED IN AMERICA SO I COULD EAT THERE,” while us Americans will literally only eat at Dennys if it’s 3 in the morning and we’ve lost control of our life.
You don’t go to Denny’s. You end up at Denny’s.
Yaakov Vilkovich is a 91 year old Jewish Soviet veteran of World War Two.
An estimated 500,000 Jewish men fought in various positions in the Red Army. 70,000 are said to be living in Israel.
Many escaped from Poland and various places under Nazi jurisdiction to join the Red Army between 1939 and 1945. Many escaping from Jewish ghettos and other areas to fight the Nazis.
These soldiers took part in some of the most decisive battles of modern history. From Stalingrad to Berlin and the liberation of Hitlers death camps, these soldiers stood along many others of various backgrounds and religions.
Stalins Jewish Fighters remain largely forgotten by mainstream history lessons and very few monuments exist to commemorate their contribution to ending the evils of fascism and Hitler’s evil.
Today these former soldiers live relatively quiet lives in both average homes and poverty. Their contributions largely forgotten, but largely amazing.
Mr. Vilkovich joined the Red Army in 1941 and fought in Berlin in 1945. The photo was taken in his home on April 11, 2013
In the Soviet Union, a common trope among antisemites was that the Jews didn’t fight in the war, that the Soviet Union fought to protect the Jews and suffered for naught. The government didn’t help to counter it, and so this myth was readily proliferated. Never mind the fact that the Jews had among the proportionately highest numbers of people to volunteer into the Red Army.
