Of all of the wacky neighbors in all of the sitcoms in all of television...

This morning as I ironed my shirt, I thought, as I always do, of Howard Borden, alone in his apartment, ironing and singing "As Time Goes By" in an episode of The Bob Newhart Show. If there were a Wacky Neighbor Hall of Fame, surely Bill Daily would be elected in his first year of eligibility. Everything about him was funny on that show -- the way he talked, the way he walked, the odd little hand movements -- everything. He wasn't bad on I Dream Of Jeannie, either, even with all of those lousy scripts.

Tho we never did get to meet his brother, Gordon Borden, the Morman doorman.

Hadn't he previously been a game warden, too, so he was Warden Gordon Borden, the Mormon Doorman?

I think you may be right. If I remember right there where several more lines of that sort in the episode. Man that was a good show. I'd love to see it again. There must be a DVD set out.
