She asks, ‘How was it?’ And I said, ‘You will be simultaneously honored and humiliated.’ And that was the spirit that that two characters really embodied. That’s what I love about them.”

Williams and Marshall guest-starred on a Season 2 episode of Saturday Night Live in 1977, and an animated series based on the characters, Laverne & Shirley in the Army, aired in 1981-82, with Marshall — who died in 2018 — and Williams voicing their respective roles.
