Cast and crew members discuss the six-year run of the NBC-TV sitcom "Gimme a Break!", including series star Nell Carter in some of her final interviews before her death. Discussions include various cast additions and changes, especially the 1985 death of co-star Dolph Sweet which devastated the series, and the final season addition of a young comedienne named Rosie O'Donnell.
Child actor Emmanuel Lewis is discovered in a series of Burger King commercials by the head of programming on ABC, who signs him to star in the sitcom "Webster." Though already twelve years old when the series began in 1983, he was only 3'4" and was cast as a seven-year-old orphan.
