A common one among ski instructors and ski patrolers:

The member looked at the guys face and said.."Are you...." he replied..."Yes, I am". They took a few runs then parted. That evening the guy saw the member/maggot out to dinner and paid for his groups dinner. That person...The late Robin Williams. 

 

 

 

TeleMike Quote from TGR:

 

I had the privilege of skiing with Robin Williams at Alpine Meadows once about 15 years ago. Loaded a chair with him. He was on tele gear too. I didn't recognize him at first. He looked down at my gear and said "Hey. Your binding is broken." I looked at him the way I always look at smart asses that say that, looked at his gear, looked back at him and realized who he was. I just sat there gaping and stammering and he just said "Yep. It's me." A hell of a nice guy. We chatted a bunch, took a few runs together, and then he took off. Ran in to him at the Cottonwood that evening and he made a point to come up and say hi and chat for a few minutes with my friends then went to his table. Bought us all dinner and beers without telling us. A genuinely nice guy.
