As you might expect from the title "Hello, Goodbye" cast changes are the focus of this episode of Nigh Court. The saddest of the exits was that of Selma Diamond who played bailiff Selma Hacker. The 64 year old died after season two had finished shooting and the actors as well as the fictional characters they portrayed clearly missed her and it shows in their performances. The Salty Selma had been involved in comedy since the days of radio when she was a writer for "The Big Show". Her sort of breakout movie role was on "Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" (give or take a mad) though only her voice was heard. She appeared in a number of other films, often as more than a telephone voice, and made quite a few TV appearances. Aside from Night Court she was probably best known for her "Tonight Show" appearances. The other exit was that of Ellen Foley as Public Defender. The talented Foley was simply fired. The talented songstress, "Paradise by the Dashboard Light", and Broadway actress was pushed out because Markie Post became available. Post was allegedly the actress that producer Reinhold Weege had wanted from the very first, but she was working on "The Fall Guy" when Night Court debuted. While Foley did a nice job, it was the addition of Post that solidified the series. It didn't hurt that she was rapidly becoming an American Heart Throb and is still known to her fans simply as The Goddess. For those of you actually interested in the episode, hey I didn't forget about it, the show focused on Bull's reaction to Selma's passing and the hiring of a new bailiff. There are a number of lovely jokes the best being when a completely inebriated Bull had a wonderful scene with some circus folk. Eventually the big lug finds a new mother figure in Florence Kleiner, played by Florence Halop, who is hired to be Selma's replacement. As she castigates him for drinking, a new relationship is born.
