In their second episode, Bob admits that he literally begged his way into
grad school...which proved to be a stroke of brilliance as it led to his first
showbiz job as an NBC "page" in beautiful downtown Burbank.
From ushering old ladies into "Let's Make A Deal" to gigs on "The Tonight Show"
with Johnny Carson and "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In", Suzanne gets Bob
to talk about first encounters with stars like Goldie Hawn, Sammy Davis, Jr.,
Dean Martin, and Kirk Douglas.
Suzanne reacts to Bob's obnoxious career moves as he jumped a long line of
others waiting for a dream job at Paramount Studios and wound up on the set of
"Mission: Impossible" working with Bruce Geller, Peter Graves, Martin Landau, Leonard Nimoy
and got his first taste of the writer's life with the help of producer Bruce Lansbury.
Suzanne takes Bob from "Mission: Impossible" to "Six Million Dollar Man" and
"Bionic Woman" where he sells his first script without having
the common sense to get an agent.
Suzanne describes how she got her first gig at Universal as a
production secretary who couldn't type a word...and how it eventually
led to her winding up in front of the cameras.
