who killed the old man

at the garage.


Could you intercept? Over.

We'll try, Greendale.

We shot them in two and a half days.

Every five days we would

shoot two episodes.

Tommy Thomson, who was my AD,

would pick me up in the morning

and I'd get in the car

and I'd drive out to...

way out in the valley in California

where we were shooting those things.

I'd say what are we doing today?

He'd say oh this is the thing,

and the two guys are doing this,

and there's a woman who's

cheating on her husband

and she's shot this guy, and

there's some baby chickens,

and they have all these

eggs that are gonna die

unless the helicopter gets

them and there's a dilemma.

Do they take the chickens?

Do they solve the murder?

And I'd say okay, I got it.

I was born and raised in California

and spent a lot of time at the beach.

One day a movie company put out a

call for girls who could swim.

So I tried out and ended

up getting the part.

I started getting work

and one day I got a call to

play a nurse on Whirlybirds.

The director was Robert Altman.

He looked a little hung-over.

When we were introduced

he didn't say hello,

he just said how are your morals?

And I said a little shaky, how are yours?

That was the beginning.

We went right into a fulltime relationship.

I never worked again after Whirlybirds.

He had already been married twice,

but those marriages didn't last very long

and he had three kids...

Christine, Michael, and Steven

from those earlier marriages.

And I had Konni from mine.

When they got married we moved

and my new school was having

this big father daughter dance

and I was so new and completely terrified.

Even though Bob and I didn't

know each other that well,

he came with me as my father.

He was so sweet about it.
