I want to write about their friendship on the show. Often, at the end of episodes, the two sit out in the air, on a balcony, and smoke cigars and talk. Their friendship is well played and palpable. Last night, the two were talking about Denny's Alzheimer's and Denny, a conservative Republican, says something like...
Denny Crane: Sometimes you can only look for answers from God, and failing that... (heavy silence... )
Alan Shore: Fox News.
Denny Crane: Exactly!
Alan Shore: (snidely) You Republicans.
Denny Crane: (smiling) You Democrats.
Of course, I laughed out loud at the Fox News crack, but the friendship of the two characters was played out wonderfully and it's something that is missing today in politics.
