>> mr. garry marshall. >> garry brought the original odd couple to tv. penny played jack klugman's secretary. in the reboot he served as a consultant and stole the show playing matthew perry's dad. >> hello, son. >> i can only imagine how honored you all are to be doing this tribute episode. >> he was always around pitching jokes at every table read. he helped design the sets. we just listened to everything he said. >> sorry for your loss. >> thank you. >> he's in there? >> in the episode after oscar's dad passes away, he and felix go on a road trip to scatter his ashes. along the way, they meet many tv icons. >> oscar, oscar. your dad was the sweetest guy. gave me my first job. babysitting you. >> cindy told me she was shocked when she learned in july that garry was gone. >> penny called me, and she said, garry's sick. i think he's dying. and i didn't believe her.
i thought it was a joke. then he passed the next -- that night he passed. someone brought me this picture of penny, me, and garry and henry, and i just burst out crying because it was like he's not here. >> hello, mr. snazzy. >> his loss also devastated the show's felix unger, thomas lennon. >> if you could go back somehow and tell the childhood vergsion of myself that the creator of happy days and "laverne & shirley" would be my friend -- it's okay. it's fine. >> i completely understand. >> in my dad's will, he wanted you and i to get together to scatter his ashes. >> really? >> garry's wife and son appear in this bar scene. scott, who was wearing his dad's old army jacket, interviewed his aunt penny. >> what do you think garry would think of all this, this episode?
>> he'd come in and rewrite it. >> i also talked to the star of another classic, mork & mindy. actress pam dawber took part in the special and remembered her late co-star robin williams. during our interview, pam was moved to tears. >> i think anybody that knew robin -- >> it's emotional for pam to talk about robin. they both shot to stardom together on the sitcom about the alien from planet ork who moves in with an earth ling. >> morning, what are you doing? >> singing the orkan blues. >> shortly before robin's suicide, they had a reunion on his show "the crazy one." >> hi, simon. you are aware it's after 1:00 in the morning. >> oh, yes. >> what do you miss most about robin? >> well, i hadn't seen robin for 20 years, and i did that episode because i wanted to be with robin. i wanted to see robin.
that was a gift. that was such a gift. >> so can i get you boys a couple of ice cold beers? >> absolutely not. >> garry's passing is the reason she returned to the stage. >> when they called me about this, i was like, oh, i am in. i don't care what it is. how could you not be in? garry affected all of our lives. >> he had made her a prime time star. later she would go on to headline her own show, my sister stam. but then in the late 80s after her marriage to mark harmon and giving birth to two sons, she walked away from fame for family. >> i've been married going on 30 years. i don't think two people can work all the time in show business and stay married. i did everything you can do in this business, and then i had children. i wanted to drive my kids to school. i wanted to be there for their birthdays and bring cupcakes and doughnuts and do the school festivals and all that, and i did. and my husband was working all
the time. >> and he still is. >> and he still is. i think he was a brunette when he started. >> you guys were our, like, you know, it couple. you were our it couple, and you've stayed together. >> i know. but notice you don't see us in the magazines. >> when you're married, that's real life. and to go and plaster your kids, i'm not for that. my kids have never seen anything i've done. i'm just their mom. they don't care about what i did. their father is already iconic enough for two boys. i'm just a mom. they don't listen to me. >> can i tell you how much fun i had talking to her? i really like her. she's so sweet, nice, and normal. normal. i have to tell you how much pam really lit up in our interview when she talked about morning and mindy. she said she barely knew who robin williams was when the casting decision was made. but garry marshall showed her some videotape and she said that's all i need to
