    He no longer needs a dentist.

    Now, we do. And we'll never find such a good one.

    R.I.P, Mr. Conway. You'll be remembered.

    Carol Burnett said Tim's goal in life was to destroy Harvey Korman. I think exceeded his goal almost weekly. Such a funny man, he was. RIP, Tim. You've earned it.

    ^^ Pure gold! What was so great about his skits was he adlibed most of them, with the cast having no idea of what was coming.

    The Dentist, and the Elephant Story are two of my favorites!

    Mr. Conway, you will be missed. Rest in peace, and may you keep the angels laughing.

    He was rip roaring funny WITHOUT using filthy words; proving filth is not needed for great humor; only a gifted
    created mind.
