When asked what his last words were, Roger says he doesn't remember. "I didn't realize at the time they were going to be my last words. I probably spoke them to Chaz as they wheeled me out to the operating room," he says. "They were probably, 'I love you.' At least, I hope those were my last words."

"On the other hand, they may have been, 'Good morning, doctor,'" Roger jokes.

Though he may not be able to speak in real life, Roger says he often talks in his dreams. "I'm talking all the time," he says. "That's just like I was in life. You could never shut me up."
