64244. The way they were writing Christine as this older woman who got married, which she shouldn’t have. Obviously got divorced right away. Reached the glass ceiling in the police precinct. So there is a part of her that died because she knows she couldn’t go any farther. – Sharon Gless

64311. New Orleans is a city whose basic industry is the service industry. That’s why it makes its money. That’s – it brings people to the city.

The question is that, how do we create jobs which are the jobs that have pay, that – living wages? – Danny Glover

64314. Putting your hands in the earth is very grounding, if you’ll excuse the pun. – John Glover

64324. Brimstone was great. That was another occasion when they called me in to do the pilot and it turned into a regular job, which made me quite happy. It was another really good experience and we were all so surprised when they pulled the plug on it. – John Glover

64369. Trying to give back a little bit is important. – Mark Goddard

64370. They sent me the script, asking me to play the part of a general. I have never played the part of an authority figure. I’ve never thought of myself that way. I was uncomfortable with it, but I worked at it and knew I had a guttural voice for a general. – Mark Goddard

64371. These are extremely talented actors who are all putting their talents into the Lost in Space movie. – Mark Goddard

64372. There’s a certain way you stand to give yourself authority, which gives you the texture for the part. I chose that my character hadn’t been married, he’d worked his way up the chain of command. For a small cameo role, I gave it a lot of thought. – Mark Goddard

64373. The question I always get is, Why didn’t you throw Dr. Smith off the Jupiter? I get that all the time. – Mark Goddard

64374. The only person who had any control was Jonathan Harris. His character was so flamboyant that he was able to make things happen. My character was fairly one-dimensional, so I had my relationship with Dr. Smith and with the family. – Mark Goddard

64375. With the Hubble telescope and all the other things that are out there, I believe something would have come through. Today, I really believe we are unique. – Mark Goddard

64377. One thing that is almost always said to me is, I grew up with you. They are meeting me and feel that they actually grew up with me. I was with them during their play hours and thinking hours. I was a part of their childhoods. That’s one of the most amazing things. – Mark Goddard

64381. In our first season we had a 22 rating. Today Seinfeld, a hit show, gets a 15. Lost in Space actually had a bigger audience than Star Trek got at that time. – Mark Goddard

64382. I’m not a great science fiction fan myself. I probably feel that way about Westerns. Like I used to play Cowboys and Indians, they can act out Will and the Robot. – Mark Goddard

64383. I would have liked it to have stayed serious and have the adventures of a family lost in space. This isn’t to take anything away from Jonathan and the Robot. I watch his performance today and he still makes me laugh. – Mark Goddard

64384. I was supposed to have a relationship with Judy, but that never happened. Actors in series didn’t have the control that they have today over their jobs. – Mark Goddard

64385. The kids like to get pictures of me for their parents. They know how proud I am of them-they have a lot more to worry about than my stardom. They are trying to make good choices for their own lives, but this gives them a little fun. They are part of my family. – Mark Goddard

64488. We’re taking up some science experiments, some crystal growth things, we have a refrigerator that carries up some samples, new samples that go into the station, we bring the old ones home; we have a lot of clothing, we have a lot of food-U.S. and Russian food. – Linda M. Godwin

64490. In the Astronaut Office we’re never totally out of training, we always keep our hand in it. But after five years, things have changed and so it’s been good to get back into the flow and relearn a lot of things. – Linda M. Godwin
