William Devane: There's always a certain amount of conflict between the writing staff and the actors. Knots had a large writing staff and they farmed a lot of (the writing) out to others. So the writers would have the dialogue be a certain way until it got to the floor. Once the scene hits the floor, the actors are in charge. But you would notice in the script that's mentioned that I never altered the story. I altered the script to the point that it allowed the "what's not being said" to come out, lines here and there.
