He didn't look good last time I saw him.

Modmins should alter headline to read "Epstein's Mother" if they green this, as that was what the notes actually read.

Seriously. The only reason I ever wanted to live in New York City was because of Welcome Back Kotter. Now, after living here 7 years, I realize everyone living here now is here because of Sex In the City.

My favorite character from WBK. His was a bit part but always elicited a chuckle. Or for the younger crowd trying to understand this, LMFAO.

Was it the panning shot of "america's 4th largest city" during the opening theme?

"Man, someday I want to live in that craphole!"

When I was in the 5th grade (the show was at it's heyday then) my teacher was in love with him. The day after the show aired she would say to the class "Did you watch Welcome Back Kotter? and did you see Epstein?..." One day she got her wish got into an elevator with him in a hospital in NJ, she kept saying what a nice guy he was. RIP Funnyman
