Norm discusses his career accomplishments and the dark side of his personality that threatened everything he had achieved. 
Important Program Note: This episode contains a very high number of 'bleeped' expletives, but the producers feel that the interview's content is strong enough to justify airing, albeit in censored form. With that in mind, programmers should consider this episode an optional part of the series. It is NOT required to air with the rest of the season 2. It is suggested that programmers review the entire episode before deciding whether it is appropriate for their audience.
