Arthur Holcombe: While you are a glamorous, and highly paid television personality, you are still an employee. In fact, you're my employee. So, unless you'd like to spend the next 3 years doing weather and fashion in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, you will now shut up and do as you're told.
Tracy Ballard: Oh, yes? Yes, Arthur? we'll see about that!

Tidbit about Arthur Hill
2 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was one of the extras in the movie. Almost each time you see a hand pushing a button or turning a dial, it is mine. I actually had a line, but they gave it to John P. Ryan, instead. Arthur Hill played Dr. Duffy in the movie. He had just finished his TV series, "Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law." Several times during the movie, people called him Owen. He always smiled and responded.

Several plot lines were dropped. There were quite a few scenes filmed using identical twins to show how the cloning went. Almost none of this was used.
