I was little, watching Merv Griffin. Carol Lawrence and Robert Goulet, married then, were both on Broadway at the time in different plays. I remember watching them doing the bit at the desk and also singing right before rushing off to that night's work. Somehow, I recognized what show business professional means during that show. It's a rare talent plus "knowing what to bring and bringing it." I shouldn't have been able to identify it - I was too little - but they had it at such a phenomenal... amplitude? ... that I "got it." I totally got it.
