Rose Marie: I started in show business when sex was a dirty word and the air was clean!
Rose Marie (on the special Inside TVLand - The Dick Van Dyke Show): They said you're to go over to Desilu and read for a new show called The Dick Van Dyke Show. I said "What's a Dick Van Dyke?" I said "Who have you got for the third writer?" They said "We haven't picked him yet." I said, "What about Morey Amsterdam?" I went home and called him up and said "They're going to call you to be in a show called The Dick Van Dyke Show." He said "What's a Dick Van Dyke?" I said "I don't know, but we're gonna be in it."
