“A few episodes before, Margaret had borrowed a book of poems from Winchester. He got angry with me at one point and made me return it,” she said. “In real life, we had this running gag. I would tease David all the time that no one had his private phone number. He was very much his own person, very reclusive in a way. So, in the final episode Winchester gives Margaret the book back. I open it and read the inscription. David had written his phone number inside. That’s my real emotion on camera.”
