[on making the transition from the comedy Mary Tyler Moore (1970) to its dramatic spin-off series Lou Grant (1977)] We were really worried about changing over from a three-camera, half-hour comedy to a one-camera, full-hour drama. The audience wasn’t ready for the switch–even CBS billed us in their promos as a comedy. In fact, the whole thing was impossible. But we didn’t know that.

[on the history of American foreign policy] I also think that there is a strong streak of racism, whenever we engage in foreign adventures. Our whole history in regime change has been of people of different color.
