Tom's, Thomas', Dick's, Richard's, Rick, Ricky, Harold's, and Harry's are everywhere! Almost that is! While they all aren't here, these are the most popular. There are so many good ones on this list, that you'll have a hard time choosing!

So who is your favorite character named, Tom, Dick, or Harry?

Ed,

I suspect that you already knew that the producers intentionally named main characters for 3rd Rock from the Sun are named Tommy Solomon, Dr. Dick Solomon, Harry Solomon and Sally Solomon.

Dan I changed the description and rearranged the order plus added Rick Blaine.
Can't forget him. Lest I get suspected for not rounding up all the usual suspects.

Off the Wall Sugg: In Joe vs. the Volcano, Joe's boss in the first part of the movie ws on the phone with someone named Harry.  It was super funny, he kept repeating, "I'm not arguing that with you, Harry!"  So I suggest 'Harry.'  :)

Okay, will do in the Servo pic!  Will let you know when it comes through.  Yeah, Harry was not seen in Joe.  How about Dick?  He's not alone but I think everyone would know who Dick is.  :)  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083455/mediaviewer/rm3941273344?ref_=ttmi_mi_all_sf_10

Hint. You'll have to get a shot from an actual episode. By himself! Good luck on that.
You will get that shot probably on the 12th of Nevertember, 2677....

You've got some other pics of one character not alone (like #11 and 25).  I ask you to please reconsider Dick, but please add Tom Cullen.  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108941/mediaviewer/rm2020755712?ref_=ttmi_mi_nm_sf_1

Using pics with a single actor
#1 Has a Tom Dick and a Harry in it
Harold and Kumar have a pending replacement.
Singles only.
I tried for a single Newhart pic, but I could not find one.
Plus the series is very old. Trying to use newer if possible.
Faberbakke needs a singe pic too.

I like this idea and find it kind of funny. : )

I'm so glad you have Harry Morgan on here. I don't know that he'll get my vote because there are few who are near and dear but he's one of my favorites. 

Oh, the apostrophes shouldn't be below except for Thomas'.

Tom's, Thomas', Dick's, Richard's, Rick, Ricky, Harold's, and Harry's are everywhere!

Ed, are you out there? Are you ok?

Speaking of ok, how's Rubee? I have sad news: my Ruby (my cat) died two months ago. I was so upset, I didn't even tell a lot of people so that's why I'm just mentioning it now. I'm still upset but trying to focus on all th good memories. I hope Rubee is doing well.

My condolences to your cat as well. I hope she 's in a better place right now. I am already scared of the day one of my beloved animals will be about to leave. May your Ruby like a ruby shine on in the minds of people that she brought joy to over the years.

Hi Ruby!!!
My e-mails were being interrupted by get satisfaction.
So.....Sorry for missing this.
Apostrophe has been removed.
Even though Southern California is in lock-down, I'm busier than normal. (Self Employed) So my usual reply time of 2-10 minutes has now been displaced with extended times.
Sorry again.

I'm so glad that you're ok, Ed! 

I may have not been clear about the suggested edits and I made a mistake about Thomas. There shouldn't be any apostrophes since you you mean them to be plural so it should read:

Toms, Thomases, Dicks, Richards, Ricks, Rickys, Harolds, and Harrys are everywhere!

Thanks.
And sorry about Ruby.
Rubee is great. He has a new pal. Pitch. A Black Cat.
Pitch is an in and out Cat! Likes outdoors as much as the inside.
He especially likes the roof of the house!!! Nights only though. Too hot in the day. It's 105F today.

As I consider myself lucky to possess one of these names, Ed, there is no other option for me than to pick myself as my favorite choice in this scenario. After all, I have heard people say many times: "Thomas, you're quite a character" and let's not even talk about the quantity here theywhen it comes to situations in which they thought so without verbally expressing what was going on in their minds.

Sure!...
I agree with everything you say, (anywhere on the thread, really)... it's just that it's a touchy subject and someone, somewhere, will find a problem with it.
Just like All Lives Matter.
Nothing wrong with that statement, but some people throw a fit about it - who knows why??

That's what I was saying on that thread... no matter what you say, how true it is, or how non-offensive it is, someone will dislike it.
That's why I said we should leave it be and let BONAFIDE decide what to do.  
Because our suggestions, for the most part, won't work for some silly reason. 
But that's just what I think!  :)
