    I finally picked up Being There a couple weeks ago on DVD. That is a funny scene...
    When Oteil showed up around these parts in the mid-'80s, the movie had been out for, what, 5 years? Anyway, the teeth gave him away. ;)
    IIRC, Oteil hosted some kids' oriented show in Washington, DC prior to his his stint here.
