Storch on being cast as a post-Civil War cavalry corporal in "F-Troop": "Of all the guys in the world to put in that kind of a situation -- I was in the navy for four years. The producers said, 'What do you know about horses? I said, 'I only know they give milk and can bite from both ends.'" --quoted in People's "Where Are They Now" feature, July 11, 1998.
