Manuel: It'd Be Quicker To Train a Monkey

So sorry to hear that.  I can't imagine Fawlty Towers with Manuel, and I can't imagine anyone else in that role.

Andrew Sachs made history in his role as Manuel. Especially in our family. To this day my 72 year-old father still says in an irritated voice "bye bye, please, bye bye" whenever my mother is taking too long to get out the door. RIP, legend.

"Which one of you is man with beard?"

"It's a filigree Siberian hamster!"

Oh, God, I finally think to look to see if there's a FT thread, and the first thing I see is Manuel el morto in Barcelona.

I saw a play in London just because Andrew was  in it.  Funny to heard him with an English accent!  RIP dear sir.

At my last job I had a coworker named Manuel.  At my current job I have a coworker from Barcelona.

Andrew Sachs was also in a movie called Quartet, which is about a nursing home for retired musicians.  I knew he looked familiar, but I couldn't place him until I read the credits at the end.
