“Let me tell you something about fair,” begins Harry Dean Stanton, as himself, on Two and a Half Men in 2004. He leaves the thought unfinished.

In the wake of the news that Stanton (Twin Peaks, Pretty in Pink) died Friday at 91, a clip of the prolific actor’s guest appearance on Two and a Half Men has been making the rounds online.

Stanton guest-starred on the season 2 premiere of the CBS comedy, playing — alongside Sean Penn, Bobby Cooper, and Elvis Costello — a member of Charlie’s (Charlie Sheen) support group. Prone to long tangents about the roots and meanings of words, Stanton is at once off-kilter and sage, and he steals the scene with his highbrow-lowbrow advice.

“Let me tell you something about sharing,” he says. “Sharing is a two-way street. When you share with another human being, you always get back more than you gave — assuming you were smart enough to share with somebody that’s got more stuff than you had in the beginning.”

Watch the clip above.
