Dariusz Sobotka : "I was a sucker for long legs... and I wanted to shimmy up hers' like a native boy looking for coconuts" XD

GravityLee : I bet this dude was a chick magnet.. probably should have been a little pickier

giraffedreams : "I won't take a lot of your time." Ain't that the truth -- gone too soon.

NY OneLove : Wow. Incredibly confident guy.

Paul Hadley : What a talent. What a loss.

Rogue : Doing an impression of a German doing an impression of Jack Nicholson....

Richard Gerlach : It's obvious to see why they hired him! More talent in his pinkie than 99% of what's out there today!

S LYKA : a completely spot on jack nicholson impression. in german. incredible.

Valizan : You are missed, Phil!

Carl Wolfe : The best part in this for me, is at the very end after he's just blown all the SNL producers away with maybe the best audition ever and Phil says very sarcastically "...Next!"

Jon R : He packaged his performance brilliantly. Eg: A German guy doing impressions (he still showed he could do impressions ... just packaged in a neat way). Or some of his bits where he’s pitching skit ideas! Gets to act them out, and show he had a fair writer’s mind! Good audition.

Liam Redmond : Ha Phil Hartman and Jon Lovitz who both also happen to be two of the best guest voice actors who ever worked on the Simpsons (Troy McClure and Artie Ziff respectively)

samdiego : Phil was probably the greatest and cast member of snl ever! I don’t know if any of you noticed but Phil on average was in more sketches than any other snl cast member during his time on the show. He was that great of a character actor and just flat out hilarious

novembermember : I can’t believe that he’s been gone 20 years. He was captivating and insanely talented.

mrbrockpeters : What Golden Voice he had. 

Allan Van Wagner : Comedy genius -"What's the word on the street'"

Andrew Gilmore : Brilliant man. Such a sad loss.

Thomaxius : 9:58 And Troy McClure was born

thadbaxter : He was clearly overqualified

SOBTelevision123 : What a gem.

Burial : The Jack Nicholson doing Hamlet is amazing.

Sailing VIO : in my books Phil was up there with the greats like Jerry Lewis & Jim Carey.

Han : I love the way he looks as a hard boiled cop - kind of hot. Just me?

SiLenT366 : "What's the word on the street?"

Don MacQuarrie : Great loss...R.I.P. MR. Hartman

truthb2u2 : Genius! Sorely missed.

Jason Mcknight : I cannot find the cafe skit where Jan was the counter lady where Phil was eating pie. I can’t find it nowhere!!

Jeff Porcaro Groove : talent and intelligence way above normal...he makes the gifted and talented look average

SIMPLE SPIN : Definitely a great talent lost. I thought his Nicholson sounded more like Woody Allen.
