1You know what's funny? As I'm watching these things, first of all, then I'll get up and go look in the mirror and say, 'God damn, that was a long time ago!' (laughs) I was so close to that show, and I start watching it again, and I didn't realize this would happen. We were so lucky to have all that going on at that time, or otherwise we wouldn't have had a show. And to wind up being as close to Clarence and Peggy and Tige as I was, as we are all together, was another thing that was very fortunate. And to be involved in a show that, well, we broke a lot of ice with Mod Squad.
2Courage is fear that's said its prayers.
