“Each character excelled at their unique role. But Debra Jo Rupp and Topher Grace, with whom I worked the most, are both excellent actresses. Debra doesn’t receive as much recognition as she should. Audiences regard her as a crazy comedian, which she certainly can achieve. Wilmer always made me laugh a lot, too. These two moments are among my favorites from the whole season.”
