Richard Morrison appearance on Kojak

I was watching/reviewing a Kojak episode the last couple of days ( and this actor appeared very briefly, uncredited, playing an accountant. I recognized this guy's voice but didn't realize until I looked it up at IMDb that it was Richard Morrison, who played five roles on the original Five-O, including Runny Grose in Death is a Company Policy. (This name always suggests to me "Runny Nose.") Morrison only had fifteen TV/movie appearances during his career as an actor, and, according to IMDb, his "real job" was a social worker. He died in Montana in 2008 at the age of 77.

I liked Runny Grose. He was a bit too simple minded for his own good. A fish in the wrong pond. How on earth did he get mixed up with Piro Manoa?

I love the scene when he asks Manoa "what's it mean?" (after the latter reads a message from Bryce-Halsey) and Manoa answers "it means we don't like odd numbers" (or something like that). Next thing you see is Manoa's boys tossing the steel drum (with Runny inside) into the ocean.
