Whether on or off the screen, Gary Goleman—who passed away on Friday at the age of 42—never stopped entertaining us. In his memory, we present five prime Gary Coleman moments from the later part of his life.

5. GARY DOES DIVORCE COURT
Gary Coleman's marriage to younger bride Shannon Price was not without its troubles. But he managed to find a little levity in his domestic woes, going up before Judge Lynn Toler in a 2008 episode of Divorce Court:

4. GARY TELLS THE INSIDER WHAT IT CAN DO WITH ITSELF
Coleman's marriage once again provided dark comedic grist during a February 2010 episode of The Insider. Grilled over allegations of domestic abuse, Gary stormed off the set atop a cloud of profanity:

3. GARY COLEMAN DISCOVERS HE'S A PORN STAR
No one was more surprised to find out that Gary Coleman's manhood would make an appearance in the movie Midgets vs. Mascots than Gary was himself. Watch Coleman's reaction as director Ron Carlson makes the offhand revelation during a press conference:

2. GARY  DISPLAYS HIS DRIVE TO SUCCEED
Hard up for money, Coleman did several commercials for loan company CashCall in his later years. We prefer this one, which could easily have been followed up with an ad for an auto-body shop:

1. GARY DESCRIBES HIS "SQUISHY" ASSAULT VICTIM

Assault is no laughing matter—but Coleman's 1998 trial for his assault against Traci Fields (Coleman eventually pleaded no contest) had its moments. Watch as Gary goes into detail about the "squishy" nature of his accuser.

    Love how in the second video he doesn't take **** from the chick, some one calls you a wife beater on t.v. insults you and then says its all your personality causing it. I don't know any other person who would react differently and really the answer to the question "was she being to hard on him" is yes, no one should be spoken to in the manner he was and he's completely justified in his reaction. This is just another example of media manipulating 'experts' and 'facts' (i put them in ' ' to emphasize my sarcasm) to portray what they want. She knew what she wanted - a reaction - she got strong words but wasn't satisfied as he didn't get violent (good on him btw that would've been difficult for anyone), instead bringing in an "expert" to tell them he 'would've' gotten violent, leaving out how he walked away - and for use of a better term - became the bigger man.
