The Old Family Friend

Doctor F. came to this country from Italy just before that big war.  He is known and loved for a couple of phrases: "I like to make mistakes. When I make mistakes, I learn."  Not always what you want to hear from a heart surgeon, but WTH.

Also:  "Everywhere I go I carry pleasure with me in a little box", line delivered while holding up a "little box" labeled "Marlboro Cigarettes".

Must have been 89, maybe 82  when he was hit by a falling airplane.
