Cool Favorite Robert Stack moment?

Of course, we all know Stack MADE this show. The man was beyond cool, a perfect host in an imperfect world

What are some of your favorite Robert Stack moments on UM?

I just watched the Comedy Store ghosts segment for the first time (found it surprisingly scary!), and loved the Stack bit at the end where he turns back and watches the bar stool move "by itself" across the stage, then turns to the camera and smiles. Stack-tastic!

GREAT thread idea!

I love it when he is holding a dog in one episode.

When he glares about the KROQ DJs and says they were lying.

Pretty much anytime he says "inexplicably" "shockingly" or anything along those lines.

As for fashion, though I love the trench coat, the blazer and leather jacket make him look really badass.

ROFL I love the way he says inexplicably! That's a good one

and for some reason when he says

"and once again (long dramatic pause) stuck in the mud"

I enjoy moments when he's on screen and really immerses you into the case. Some of these moments include:

1) Eliot Ness-Stack mentions how he learned a lot about this famous lawman from his own portrayal during The Untouchables tv show back in the 60s.
2) Michael Swango-"Most of us tend to hold doctors to a higher standard, and perhaps that's fair. After all we are somtimes compelled to trust them implicitly, depending on their knowledge and expertise to save our lives. Did Michael Swango display that trust for his own sadistic pleasure?". I like this moment because of how effective it is at really grabbing your attention about the case.
3) Dexter Stefonek-"Many of us who have driven along a lonely stretch of highway, it is an unsettling feeling going miles without seeing other people, you know a cry for help would not be heard".

I know it is a non-UM moment, but Robert Stack was awesome as Agent Fleming in Beavis and Butt-head do America.

I like how Stack referred to the guys who may have shot Jeremy Bright as a couple of "toughs".

I like the way Stack pronounces words that begin with "wh".

I love the hands in pocket, tough guy stance with the killer stare that he assumed at the end of most of the show openings. John Walsh talks the talks, but Stack walked the walk.

...anything ending in "oo", such as "poo-poo" or "goo".

Bonnie Wilder was poo-pooed for wearing a giant moo-moo. Inexplicably, the moo-moo disappeared...as if into thin air. Who stole the moo-moo...and why?

Just thought of another one...when Stack says "unsuspecting nudists" in the nudist colony episode.

There was one part in an episode I laughed at. He said something like "...it was a gun gun" or something along those lines. I'm not sure if the video skipped or it was a small error on Stack's part, but I found it a little funny. I will remember him though for looking into the camera at the end of the show and saying "there is somebody, somewhere, who knows the truth. Perhaps...it's you!".

I also forgot to add that I liked the part where he walked past the exploding flame in the human combustion episode. Was he a boss or what?

Brothers and sisters, I gotta resurrect this thread.

- Keith Reinhard segment: "Could these two disappearances, less than a year apart, be connected?" The soft, inquisitive inflection he puts on the last two words is gold.

- Gabby's locker: "Maybe he bought it in Wyoming--or Missouri--or maybe it was Oklahoma....Gabby just couldn't be sure." I actually lol'd at the way he said that one.

- His reading of Ecclesiastes 12:1-8 in the Chuck Morgan segment. I get literally get chills every single time.

- Any time there is an update and he says something to the effect of "___ was a suspect from the VERY BEGINNING", or "____ was a suspect EARLY in the investigation." There's almost this you-can't-pull-anything-over-on-us vibe to it.

I LOVE this one. Stack sounds like even he thinks Gabby's story is total baloney.
