On a stage, in front of the lights, is where stand-up and actor Robin Williams shone most brightly. The riffs, tangents and impersonations came rushing at the audience, a seemingly endless torrent. As the world wrestles with grief over his death, here are 10 things he famously said on film and in his stand-up routines.

3. Aladdin (Genie)

Genie: Thank you for choosing "Magic Carpet" for all your travel needs. Don't stand until the rug has come to a complete stop. Thank you. Goodbye, now. Goodbye. Goodbye. Thank you. Goodbye.

4. Cocaine (a drug he abused in real life) is God's way of telling you you are making too much money.

8. Mickey Mouse to a three-year-old is a six-foot-tall RAT!
