"I mean when you think about it, you got to face the fact that is is a very successful TV show on American television all over the world and probably the driving force of the show, this might be sacrilegious to say, was the realtionship between you and Cote. Between Michael and Cote. It drove the show through years and years of … of this procedural, I’m sure very interesting stuff, but there was emotion connected to it all the way through and it wasn’t, knowing Mr. Weatherly from before this show, that he lives in the work that he does. He lives in the work that he does."
