He only had one brief scene in a Clint Eastwood movie, but it was as indelible as any:

CABBIE: Head of the line, head of the line, cowboy. That's luggage.


[Closeup of COOGAN's battered briefcase.]

CABBIE: That thing in your hand, that's luggage.

COOGAN: So it's luggage.

CABBIE: So it's fifty cents extra for a piece of luggage.

[COOGAN gets into the cab.]

CABBIE: Where to, cowboy?

COOGAN: One seventy-seven East 104th Street.

CABBIE: You from Texas?

COOGAN: Arizona.

CABBIE: You with the rodeo?


CABBIE: Everybody wear them clothes in Arizona?

COOGAN: No, lifeguards wear swim trunks, nurses wear white dresses. What do they wear here?

[CABBIE nods and smiles.]

[They reach their destination, COOGAN gets out of the cab.]

CABBIE: That's $2.95 including the luggage.

COOGAN: Tell me, how many stores are there named Bloomingdale's in this town?

CABBIE: One, why?

COOGAN: We passed it twice.

CABBIE: It's still $2.95 including the luggage.

COOGAN: Yeah. Well, there's three dollars, including the tip.

Louis Zorich passed away last Tuesday at the age of 93. He had quite a distinguished career on stage, screen and television, and continued acting into his 90s. His last film appearance was in No Pay, Nudity (2016), which Neil Genzlinger, in Zorich's obituary, calls "a bittersweet comic drama by Lee Wilkof about the troubles older actors have finding work."

Rest in peace!
