    • Rocky: (about working with Mark Harmon again) We have a really good time. You know, it's funny because I do a blog for TV Guide and people ask all the time. There's such a tension between the characters. They're so mano a mano and at any time the wheels could come off in regards to them being civil to each other. But if people really knew how much fun we had playing opposite each other, they wouldn't take us seriously. I think when you really get along and you really appreciate each other, it's easy to get adversarial on screen. There's a level of trust there. It's great. Mark is the ultimate collaborator. He really is a quarterback. He was one in college...he has such a great inquisitive sort of personality. It makes him very easy to work with. He's one of those people in my business that I really appreciate...what we do is a collaborative effort and it's sometimes made out to be a competitive sport. But it's not. When movies work or a TV series, when they really work, it's because of the collaborative effort. Competition is the death knell for anything, in my opinion. Especially in Hollywood. When actors are competing against each other, or when directors are competing against actors, it's usually the beginning of the end. And this show has survived for six seasons and it's doing better because it has such a great collaborative effort. The actors actually get along. They like each other...I've worked on shows where the actors don't talk to each other and if they want to talk to each other, they talk through the director. What kind of existence is this? If I have to spend 14 hours a day with somebody, we're in a relationship. We'd better talk it out. It's just mind-boggling to me.
