“Unfortunately, I’ve had a terrible cold. On the day we did the first read-through, I didn’t have a voice,” she reminded him. “But then I had to take a day off, so at least I got my voice back. We have [the tape] on a Friday, and the cold was knocking me out, but you know what? The show must go on. Joanna Kerns, the director, was aware of the way I felt. I just wanted to be straight, so I was worried, but she hugged me, and I will always be grateful for that.”

It is as if they are married,” said Burnett. “They obviously love each other and admire each other’s work, and you can’t even figure that they are doing things. Sometimes, Paul would have something to say, and I thought to myself that this was Paul talking to me, but it was a sign. He is right of course. She couldn’t be sweeter.”
