Larry's Quarter -
William Sanderson, who played Larry, one of
three bizarre backwoods brothers living in
Vermont on the sitcom NEWHART/CBS/1982-90 always
wore a quarter (25 cent piece) in his ear when

movie Coal Miner's Daughter
(1980), Sanderson has continued to practice this
strange ritual. As he explained "It's for luck."
