Asked why the Western continues to resonate in the assorted entertainment media, Church says, "It's uniquely American. The English have Shakespeare, the Japanese have the great Samurai melodramatic romances. It's actually a very narrow sliver of American history that has been deservedly canonized. It's a unique period like no other."

The "guiding light" lady asks, "Where do you get your inner strength?" Church goes, "Uh fiber?" Room fills with laughter. Get what you ask for.

Reflecting on his career beginnings, Church says, "The very first thing I did that had any significance was a guest appearance on Cheers. David Angel happened to be on the set and thought I might be right for the character of Lowell on Wings. He gave me some sound advice early on - don't quit the show."
