Newhart Remembers Chemistry with Pleshette

Bob Newhart remembers the chemistry he had with Suzanne Pleshette and the way she could make him blush.

In a 2006 interview with AP Radio, Newhart said he and Pleshette just clicked.

He said they had "mutual respect for each other and loved each other."

Newhart said Pleshette in real life was just like she was on TV "except for the swearing."

He joked that he saw "grown Marines faint" when she'd let loose with a string of dirty words.

Pleshette played Newhart's wife for six years on "The Bob Newhart Show" and was there when Newhart woke up from his dream in the surprise series finale of "Newhart."

She died before she could get her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The ceremony was scheduled on her birthday, Jan. 31.
