“There was a moment during the second season when I had Gonzo ad-lib a line that was, I think, important for my understanding of his character. He'd been auditioning chickens for the show -- dancing chickens -- and they were all terrible. At the end of the scene I had him turn to the camera and say, 'Nice legs, though.' Something jelled right there. It told me something about him.”
The attraction to chickens that began with Lolita would eventually lead Gonzo his long-term relationship with Camilla, which began in episode 318.
