Scottie Templeton: I spent a little time in the hospital, Maggie. It turns out that I'm in less than perfect health.
Maggie Stratton: [quavering] how imperfect?
Scottie Templeton: Well, I'll tell you. When they advise you to get your affairs in order, you tend to think they're posting a closing notice.

I am bias though because He is my uncle Andy!! I loved him and miss him much these days since his passing. He was a great Actor and loved his craft.He was just starting to get noticed when he died. He did a lot for Canadian Television. My Uncle Andy worked with some great Classic Actors like David Niven. He told me once that Acting was one of the greatest freeing of the soul. and that it gave him great joy! He also had a great love for the theater. He said that true actors never want to be a star they just want to be part of the process. A good actor is a en-sable actor. Its the group that make the greats.
