The one thing I have a pet peeve about is failing to separate the characters from the people who played them. There was lots of drama and innuendo that circled Moonlighting like vultures, but the bottom line is we are analyzing and discussing the work itself. Sure, stuff happens, but there has to be a reason that this series has stood the test of time and remained bright and fresh. And many of the things discussed here are very pertinent. In my mind it is too easy to brush things off by using the personal, rather than digging into the work itself.
Please don't misinterpret this......it's my opinion, and by no means should it affect the discussion. My call out is just that Maddie and David, and Cybill and Bruce are two totally separate pairs of people.....one pair fictional, and one pair very real, and should be considered as such.
I totally agree with you, Diane. And might I add that, generally speaking, gossiping about people and their private life not only is a blow below the belt, but also upsets the above-mentioned... How are upset people supposed to do their job to the best of their ability?
I despise gossips. I'll never gossip about anyone in my entire life, not even about people I hate. Least of all about people ( 2 in particular ) I love and respect.

I think Cybill meant to do it...It's not a casual choice of tone... IMHO.
I'm sorry. I'd better make myself clear.
What I was trying to say is that I think the writers, the director, or whoever, made Cybill say the line in that tone... I daresay actors are not allowed to pour their private life into their job. That would affect the development of their character... I'm pretty sure the producers wouldn't like it to happen. IMHO.
