He was in everything! He was in two of my favorite movies, Trading Places and Suspect. He doesn't have a big part in either; he just plays to perfection the kind of role that you can't do without.

My favorite Bosco is his sequence at the end of Working Girl, when Melanie Griffith is picking up her stuff.

When she is giving her elevator speech on how she came up with her idea … the look on his face. He sees something in her and decides then he is willing to take a chance. When she explains later that you can break the rules when you get ahead but when you are a secretary from Staten Island, you can't get ahead without breaking the rule, his look confirms his earlier thoughts.

Just great stuff.

Seeing the clip from Quick Change reminded me that it w-as out shortly before we got married.

At some wedding thingie at a local department store-the future Mrs and I won a "Quick Change" contest thing where we dressed each other faster than the other contestants.

Now, just because we could dress each other quickly it should not be assumed that we knew how to undress each other quickly-LOL.

They also made a big thing about the movie Quick Change at the 1990 Daytona Beach spring break. I think I still have an old t-shirt or something from that around here.

My sister went to college in Daytona Beach and I went down at spring break to visit.
