"We just didn't have enough money to do a period show. That's the plight of public television. So, we called in some favors. We got deals at the Paramount prop shop and at a scene dock that has collected a lot of scenery over the years. We brought things from our houses. If we had built the set new it would have been $200,000. We spent $30,000 or so renting stuff. I think you can't tell that it's a bunch of rented flats put together. We took the odds that were against us to make a really first-class looking production."
"The happiest thing for me was that even though we made many of the walls wild -- making a wall 'wild' means you can pull it out, put a camera there, and shoot into the room -- they hardly pulled any walls.
We had a little bit of trouble in Husband's room, the little pantry room, because it was so small.
Debbie said, 'Don't pull that wall. I want it to feel really cramped in there.' At the end of the day of shooting, she said, 'I just love my little room.'"
