I remember going to my wife. I always get her counsel, because we're together, whatever I do affects her. So I wanted to get her input on it. And I said to her, 'Just know that this show would shoot in Albuquerque, New Mexico if it were to happen.' And I handed her the script and she started reading the script. And I would peek in to see every once in a while and she was like, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom to the end. And right when she got near the end, I came back into the room and she went, 'shit.' She just said 'shit' and I knew that was her approval.
