May he rest in peace. Gosford Park is one of my favorite films.

From A Prairie Home Companion:

Lola Johnson: What if you die some day?
Garrison Keillor: I will die.
Lola Johnson: Don't you want people to remember you?
Garrison Keillor: I don't want them to be told to remember me.

From something sweeter:

Dane: We all want to be remembered for something. And I was thinking about it going, how can I remembered. And then I suddenly realized you can do it on a daily basis. Even if it's one on one with people. Like for example, the other day, I saw a young boy, and he was eating an ice cream cone. I ran up, I smashed it into his face. I leaned in, I go, "You remember me forever." And I ran away.

(That's just what that reminded me of.)
