"One of the things we took some pride in [with that show] was integrating the musical numbers in with the story. When Doves Cry." 

"He played the song for me, and he had the speaker system from heaven. Who knows how many speakers were in that car? For someone my age, I like rock music, but I don't like a lot of it. Nevertheless, [the song] was melodic and played with great intensity. I said, 'Man, you've certainly got a foundation. This can pay off at the end.'"

During his interview with the TV Academy Foundation, William said,

"I just got assigned Brian's Song. I was one of the guys, I had done The Interns, and Len [producer Leonard Goldberg] liked my writing. Another terrific writer … got some sorority-house horror premise, and I got Brian's Song. Go figure."
