Laura San Giacomo,
Though some of it can be seen through the open door, the inside of Roy's office is never shown. The same goes for his house. The gang gathers in his backyard on one occasion, but that's as close as the audience ever gets. Both locations, however (as well as his car: a purple El Camino, which is also never seen) are repeatedly described in great detail, with emphasis on Roy's gaudy and often inappropriate tastes.

In episode 4.2: "The Fortune Cookie", Joe decides to dissolve Sandpiper and Lowell fears he's out of a job, but in episode 3.14: "Stew in a Stew", Joe clearly states that Lowell works for the airport, not Sandpiper, meaning he still has the six planes at Aeromass to maintain. See more »
It says here, fifteen percent of the American public would rather watch television than have sex.
Fifteen perc... Yeah, yeah, I buy that, yeah. You know, maybe you're... you're too tired, or she's too... what's a nice way to put this? Ugly.
The words "too tired" aren't in my vocabulary, and frankly, Roy, I don't think the words "too ugly" should be in yours.

Wings has always been a great show with a wonderful cast of colorful actors like the Hackett brothers, the Chappel sisters, Lowell, Antonio, Fay, & Roy but I am probably leaving somebody out. Unlike most sitcoms, the show is set in Nantucket, far from the Los Angeles or New York City which is another reason to watch alone. Set in a small airport, Fay and Roy are always a pleasure to watch. Lowell is a unique character. The fact that the Hacketts, Lowell, and the Chappel sisters have a history in Nantucket is also useful for creating great plots around their history. I have plenty of favorite episodes like the psycho Valerie Mahaffey's character in recreating their senior prom, honeymoon, wedding etc. I also liked Farrah Forke's character but she left one season. These actors appear to have a good time on screen and off-screen which makes it another reason to watch. I just watched the Christmas episode where Antonio's girlfriend is the wife of his kidnapper, the new air traffic controller, who takes him hostage when he takes his donut. Sure the absurdity sometimes is half the fun of this show.
