Second row from the back, wedged in the middle of the long Edison High auditorium row, with the black briefcase stuffed full of paperwork - yo, new teacher! How are you feeling about the first day of school? Tony Danza - actor, soon-to-be reality TV star, and newly minted Northeast High English teacher - didn't hesitate. "Scared," he said yesterday. Sept. 8 is city students' first day of school, and that's really hitting Danza, who wore a gray suit, white shirt, and no tie to the Philadelphia School District's new-teacher orientation, which continues today.

When Latka met Nardo, Taxi, Episode 1, Sept. 12, 1978: "Keetze bala, cosi bila, keetze bala, ibi da?" He's asking to sit down. She nods. He puts his head on her shoulder. Latka: "Bed?" Nardo: "No bed. " Latka: "No bed?" He stands up. "Thank you very much. " Andy Kaufman's loopy "Foreign Man" Latka Gravas and Marilu Henner's sexy, no-nonsense Elaine Nardo were two of the endearing characters in one of television's best comedies - so good, in fact, that it almost wound up on HBO. The show's first season is out this week in one of the sparest DVD releases ever, with zero extras.

The relationship between God and sports, explored in "Angels in the Outfield," is a curious one. Though we are often accused of being an irreligious society, you'd never know it by watching a sporting event. Players are forever thanking the Almighty for touchdowns, crossing themselves before entering the batter's box or bowing their heads humbly in the locker room before asking His assistance in maiming an opponent, who, at that moment, is in the other locker room making the very same request.

Eagles fans expecting to get some answers about next season by watching Terrell Owens on The Tony Danza Show yesterday may have been disappointed, but they did get to see T.O. teach T.D. a hot new end-zone dance that he named "Who's the Boss?" Owens came onto the set of Danza's New York-based morning show wearing acid-washed jeans and a yellow sweater, to hoots from the studio audience, and he told the host what fans here have heard before: Just because he celebrates on the field, it doesn't make him a bad guy. Asked if he liked Philadelphia, Owens said, "I enjoyed this past year" but didn't elaborate.

Sam Chwat was a master of accents who taught Robert De Niro to talk like an Appalachian ex-convict, Olympia Dukakis to sound like a Holocaust survivor, and Peter Boyle to play the character of a Southern bigot. A modern-day Henry Higgins, he also trained some actors to lose accents, helping Julia Roberts drop her native Georgia drawl and Tony Danza his distinctive Brooklynese. Mr. Chwat, 57, died of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma March 3 on Long Island, N.Y. He ran the Sam Chwat Speech Center in New York City, which has helped thousands of people with speech challenges, including politicians and corporate executives.
