NL: Nathan Pleads the Fifth!
Nathan's best memory of Robin Williams from doing the movie "The Birdcage" with him was when they did a musical number together but it was eventually cut. Nathan was singing a song titled "can that boy foxtrot?" They did the whole number with the audience. Robin had the day off from filming. Robin wanted to come in to support Nathan despite the fact that he had the day off. Robin was an extraordinary person, no one was kinder. He was a great colleague and a great human being. He was so generous to Nathan. Nathan wouldn't of had that part if it wasn't for Robin. Steve Martin was supposed to do it with Robin. Nathan said it was a great joy to work with Robin Williams. (You can watch the clip of Nathan talking about Robin here)

Andy asks Andrea to say the first thing that comes to her head when he mentions some former costars whom have passed away.
AC: Gilda Radner
AM: Lucille Ball, she's never seen anyone since Lucille Ball that was able to do physical comedy and able to maintain their femininity.
AC: Jan Hooks
AM: underneath all that brilliant wacky comedy was a beautiful, sensitive actress that we never got to see.
AC: John Candy
AM: instantly compelling drawing you in. She can't go down the street in Canada without grown men going up to her and ask what John Candy was like with tears in their eyes. He had a great impact on people because John Candy was who you thought he really was.
