Last September, EW‘s Lynette Rice sat down with Robin Williams to discuss his big return to network television. The series, which premiered 31 years after Mork & Mindy made the comedian a household name, was The Crazy Ones, a single-camera comedy about a brilliant, unfiltered ad exec (Williams, naturally) who runs an agency with his more uptight daughter (Sarah Michelle Gellar). The interview is poignant in light of both the fact that Williams’ televised comeback was short-lived—CBS declined to pick up The Crazy Ones for a second season, and its last episode aired April 17, 2014—and, more importantly, the actor’s sudden death Monday.

Listen to the interview—in which Williams describes Mork as “an arranged marriage” and trades quips with Gellar—below:
