I went back on the show because they asked me to and I realized that was the best place to work and I was back with my best friend. Thank God you came back. Whose idea for the dream scene?
That was Leonard Katzman. My wife, oddly enough, had the same instinctual decision. When I said to her I think they're going to ask me to come back on the show, her first response was you can only do that if the whole last season was a dream.
Then when I talked to Leonard, that was indeed what he wanted to do and so we went ahead and did it.DALLAS THEN AND NOW 2018

It was the luckiest bit of casting, I think, that has occurred in a long time on television. Everybody was absolutely perfect for the parts they played. For a Romeo and Juliet basically subject matter for Bobby and Pam, we were absolutely the most comfortable two actors when we were working together.
She had a wonderful sense of humor. We could just go crazy between takes and then get right back into the moment. Did you try to talk her out of leaving? At that point in the show, the show was getting longer and longer in the tooth and I understood because of what I had done, why people want to go. What everybody has to understand is she was starting what became, and still is, a huge second career empire as Victoria Principal's Secret and all that with makeup and health things.
She knew what she wanted to do. When she left for a much more sensible reason than I had in year seven, I never try and dissuade anybody from leaving any show, because I think they're going to learn by it, if it's successful or if it's a mistake. Priscilla Presley came in as your love interest, Jenna Wade.
How did you like working with her? Laughs I have been approached by more men in my career, looking at me like you are the luckiest son of a gun in the world and Priscilla is one of the reasons they say that. She was the softest person She just personifies the perfect woman. We obviously hit it off very well. It was a dream to have her on the show, it was an absolute dream; makes all of us pale in comparison.
To come from that relationship with Elvis Presley and then just be the most down to earth, almost shy, self-effacing person, she was just absolutely fantastic to work with. I've heard some rumblings that there might be a "Step by Step" reunion show.

Would that ever happen? I think that rumbling started on the social media because of "Dallas" coming back and it being successful. There's a lot of "Step by Step" fans out there, a lot of my Twitter followers are "Step by Step" people. I'm very close still to Suzanne[Somers].
She became my Larry Hagman for seven years when we did the show. The young people on the show are like my children. If the format was correct, I think a special could be done. To do a series, I'm not sure, but anything is possible. The point being, the work when we were doing it was so enjoyable that I can't imagine most of the cast not wanting to do it if it were offered again.
In your interview with HuffPost Liveyou told Ricky Camilleri that you hoped you would live one day longer than your wife because you would worry about her being without you.
The Love Story of Patrick Duffy and His Late Wife
That's the sweetest thing I've ever heard. Oh, I'm glad you thought it was sweet. I thought maybe it would sound a little bit selfish that I wanted to live longer but it's actually how I truly feel. Your wife is 10 years older than you.

As a woman, I think that's wonderful. Has the age difference ever been a problem? No, I think it's at times, honestly, it has been an adjustment period for my wife when people used to mention it over and over again. I think they were searching for a problem that didn't exist, and I think that was a bit frustrating for her. That's another thing is you reach a certain age where there is no difference, that 10 years does not make an appreciable difference in how you look, how you act, what you can do, and what you can't do.
We considered ourselves almost consistently as the same age, maybe not chronologically, but certainly physically and emotionally. We've never noticed the difference, to be quite honest. What's the secret to your happy marriage?
I think everybody has their own secret, and there's not an actual formula. My secret is I had to learn how to acquiesce to a certain number of things without feeling like I was giving up, or I was owed something for it, and that was a big transition for me to stop keeping a tally book of, "Okay, I did this for you, and now you'd better do this for me," or, "I gave up this and didn't do that, so you owe me something.
What bad habit do you have that your wife wishes you would stop? Whenever we travel to any place that speaks another language, I talk in an American accent of that language. It drives her crazy.
How many times have you been properly in love? That's a Piers Morgan question, I love that question.
Everybody I've been in love with, from my high school sweeties, to dating in college, I would say I was properly in love with all of them. Was I ultimately in love with them? Was I eternally in love with them? That's why I'm with my wife now for 42 years, but at the moment, I think love, as a verb, is proper all the time.
