I punched up the volume on my phone — the pesky thing hadn’t been working well — and assured Pauline none of her old folks had broken a hip.

Along with the rest of the creative talent, Green was nominated for Outstanding Art Direction for a Single-Camera Series for the 2012 season in the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. “I’m the person that finds all the pieces that goes in each setting from the table to the chairs to the floor to the lights,” he said. “If we have a craft service table, I’ll even take the Sweet ‘N Low and put it on the table if it needs it.”
