[on her role in Welcome Back, Kotter (1975)] Five women tested for it. One of them was Farrah Fawcett. She was wonderful, but they said, "We didn't think anyone would believe her with Gabe Kaplan." I said, "You believe me with Gabe Kaplan? Thank you very much."
[on Welcome Back, Kotter (1975)] I did not particularly enjoy Kotter. I spent much of the four years being frustrated. I didn't have much to do on the show. I was just there when Kotter came home at the end of the day.
