I once saw Conway on a talk show, discussing the Dorf golf videos. For one of the shows, they enlisted the help of the great golfer, Sam Snead. They set it up at a local golf course . The night before they met for dinner at the club to get acquainted and discuss the outline of the next day's skit. When Snead showed up the next day for the shoot, Conway was already in costume and standing in the holes that had been dug for his legs. Snead introduces himself to Conway, not realizing he's the same guy he had been having dinner with the night before. He thought Conway was a midget. After they got past that, Snead overheard them talking about how to film a scene, where an errant drive bounces off a tree about a hundred yards down the fairway. The director and Conway couldn't decide whether to aim and propel the ball with some device or have someone off camera throw the ball at the tree. After listening to the discussion for a bit, Snead asked which tree they wanted hit. He then teed up a ball and hit the tree three out of four times.

Agreed, especially when they probably giggled during rehearsals and still got laughs out of each other live on stage.
If you like religion, laws or sausage, then you shouldn't watch them being made.
