"I'd constantly throw
myself in front of them like swine before wolves
because I knew they'd
always go for the jugular. They're two of the
sweetest people in
real life, but they were killers in terms of comedy."
Jason: "I'd always lob the
ball to Jerry Stiller and Estelle Harris, because I knew they would smash
it back. In this scene for instance, I was thrilled that NBC liked
the show that I was going to cowrite with Jerry. We were moving to California!
Estelle shattered that dream with, "Since when do you know how to write?
I never saw you write anything." Look at my body language. It says, "I'm
wide open. Go ahead - strike and kill."
