I've seen all three of them. Burgess seemed to be a bit of a favorite on that show. That's why they kept asking him back.

He was hilarious in those movies.

Jack Lemmon: "Someone moved into the old Glickner place. A woman"
Burgess: "A woman? Did you mount her?"

Incidentally I think Grumpier Old men was the last movie he did before he passed away.
