I met Robin Williams at Forbidden Planet on 59th street back in 1987. I wasn't an employee at the time, I was just a 14 year old high school student. We were told not to bother him while he was shopping and we were very respectful. As I was standing at the toy rack, I sort of muttered to myself "My mom would never believe I met Robin Williams". Suddenly he leans next to my face from behind and just says "Why not?". It was a thrill for me, one that I've never forgotten. His death has hit me very hard, just like it did when Freddie Mercury died. Robin had been a part of my pop culture world almost my entire life. He was unique and won't ever be replaced.
