Ed Asner died at age 91 over the weekend. The loveable actor is famous for playing Lou Grant for a dozen years in the sitcom “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and to a younger generation for his work on  2003’s “Elf” and 2009’s “Up.”

For many of us, his job interview with a young Mary Tyler Moore is comedy at its best.


Lou Grant: You got a lotta spunk.

Mary Richards: Why thank you, Mr. Grant.

Lou Grant: I HATE spunk.”
