Son: Dad, was Abraham Lincoln a great man?
Father: He was, and mind you, when Lincoln was your age, he was out splitting rails.
Son: Yes, I know. And when he was your age, he was president of the United States.

Commando Nanny (2004)

From 1989 to 1993, Gerald McRaney starred in Major Dad as a tough marine drill sergeant who adopts his new wifeís three children. In 2004, he signed up for the similar Commando Nanny, portraying a former marine who goes to work as a child-care provider. The WB network announced the comedy as part of its fall 2004 lineup. A pilot episode was filmed, but the series was not to be: Teenage costar Philip Winchester broke his foot during filming and had to drop out of the show. Then McRaney required emergency surgery to remove a cancerous lung tumor, and producer Rachel Sweet quit because of the delays. Down two actors and a producer, the WB had no choice but to cancel Commando Nanny before it aired.



Saturday Night Live was broadcast outside of New York only once: from New Orleans in 1977.
