Quotable Quotes:

"(Explaining how he ended up playing Det. Sgt. Fish on Barney Miller (1975)) "I got the role because the producer thought I looked tired. But I looked tired because I had been jogging earlier that day. He said to me, 'You look tired, Abe.' I said, 'I am. I was just jogging five miles.' He said, 'You also look like you have haemorrhoids.' I said, 'What are you? A doctor or a producer?' And he said, 'Well, I'm a producer and you know what? You've got the role.' Just like that."" (IMDB)

"Abraham Charles Vigodah left us at a great age, full of promise and Howell Athletics involvement. We will miss his infectiously positive spirit and relentless energy. (V)"
