Richard Burgi supports the Friends of the Sea Lion Marine Mammal Center The RBFC Summer 2003 Charity Auction, held in honor of Richard Burgi's birthday, will once again support the Friends of the Sea Lion Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach, California.

The FSLMMC mission statement (which is reproduced below) does not fully convey the challenges facing the Center. It would be hard indeed to overstress the constant need for long-term volunteers and for donations of time, materiel, and money; one outbreak of domoic acid poisoning can fill the Center to overflowing with sick marine mammals and devour resources -- supplies, medicine, funds -- at an astounding rate.

We are pleased and proud to join Richard and Lori Burgi in their support of this most worthy organization.



Friends of the Sea Lion Marine Mammal Center is a non-profit organization staffed by dedicated volunteers and funded by donations.
Its mission is to: 
  • rescue, medically treat and rehabilitate seals and sea lions that are stranded along Orange County, California beaches due to injury or illness; 
  • release healthy animals back to their natural habitat; and 
  • increase public awareness of the marine environment through education and research.

As it is an ongoing concern of Richard's  that many small, local, volunteer-run and funded charities are overlooked, he is considering additional charities to be supported by this auction.  Should Richard choose additional recipients for the proceeds of the Summer 2003 RBFC Auction, we will announce them here and on the News page.

If you would prefer to make a donation to the RBFC Auction fund-raiser rather than taking part in the auction,  we would be happy to include your donation in the final tally. Here are a few guidelines:

  • Write "RBFC auction donation" on your check's memo line.
  • Please make sure your check or Money Order is payable in U.S. Dollars.
  • Make checks payable directly to the FSL Marine Mammal Center, or to an alternate charity Richard may choose (well, as soon as we have the name to give you), if you want to take a tax deduction for the amount; otherwise, you may make the check payable to Kathleen Cole, and we will consolidate the amounts and send in one check.
  • Foreign Money Orders must be payable through a U.S. bank.
  • Send your check or Money Order to the RBFC mailing address -- RBFC, 10153 1/2 Riverside Drive #494, Toluca Lake, CA 91602, U.S.A.
  • Visa and MasterCard are accepted through PayPal only. PayPal assesses a minor fee for their service.
  • PayPal payments should be made to the RBFC account at PayPal.
  • PayPal payments cannot be claimed as tax deductions as they go directly into the RBFC account.
  • The RBFC will consolidate the amounts and send one check to the charity.
PayPal logoPayPal transactions are processed through their website at http://www.paypal.com, using wbkat852@aol.com as the RBFC payment address / account.  The process is fairly simple -- new PayPal customers must first register with PayPal, which takes about five minutes.  (Instructions are provided on the PayPal website). Please bear in mind, PayPal will deduct a service fee from the amount credited to the RBFC; contact Kat Cole at WBKat852@aol.com for further information.

The RBFC 2003 Summer Auction ran from August 3rd to 16th

Date and time of final Auction list update:  16 Aug 03 -- 15:18:44 EDT

( Total bids: $3369-- )( Contributions: $400- )( Grand total: 3769-- )


2003 Auction item 101 Item 101 -- A mint-condition Emmy Tape of "The District" episodes "A Southern Town" and "Running Towards Fire," plus March 7th, 2001 sides for "Running Towards Fire," signed by Richard Burgi.

Richard Burgi has been on the recurring character cast of The District since Season One, when he joined the show in the role of Captain Vincent Hunter of Internal Affairs. He appeared in seven Season One episodes, the last of which was “Running Towards Fire,” episode 1.20.

Originally aired on April 28th, 2001, “Running Towards Fire” deals with a timely and controversial issue - white-on-black “friendly fire” shooting incidents. “Here comes The Dark Side,” says McGregor, when Hunter first appears in the ER.  Hunter, as head of IA, is not a favorite with Chief Mannion’s detectives, yet two of them - McGregor and Page - must team with the former Homicide detective to solve the shooting.

“Sides” is a term used to identify the script pages to be shot on a particular day. They are usually photocopied pages, reduced to 1/3 or 1/4 of their original size to make them easier to study and then tuck away in a pocket. The front page of the stapled “sides” usually consists of a list of scenes to be shot, the locations and props to be used, the day’s schedule for actors who will appear in those scenes, and other details relevant to the production.

2003 Auction item 201 Item 201 -- An Emmy Tape of the "24" episodes "Pilot" and "8:00 A.M. - 9:00 A.M.,"  plus a copy of the "24" script, "Pilot," signed by Richard Burgi.

Richard Burgi appeared in nearly half of the first season of the groundbreaking and immensely popular FOX drama, 24 - eleven of the show’s twenty-four episodes. When introduced to viewers in the pilot episode, “Midnight - 1:00 A.M.,” he is Alan York, single father of a rebellious teenage daughter. His daughter Janet has apparently run off with the Bauer’s headstrong offspring Kimberly, and Alan is increasingly concerned. When husband Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) is called away by a crisis at work, Teri Bauer (Leslie Hope) joins Alan in his attempt to track down the missing girls.

The Emmy Tapes are high-quality VHS tapes sent out to the Emmy voters to familiarize them with the shows contending for an award. Most usually contain two episodes. Richard appears in the first hour of the tape, in the pilot episode. The script, which Richard graciously signed for us, is his working copy.

Final bid on this item: $170--


2003 Auction item 202 Item 202 -- A copy of the "24" script "6:00 A.M. - 7:00 A.M.," plus September 25th, 2001 sides for "6:00 A.M. - 7:00 A.M.," both signed by Richard Burgi.

The sixth episode of  24 found Teri (Leslie Hope) Bauer and  Alan (Richard Burgi) York  engaged in a bedside vigil of sorts as Alan’s badly injured daughter,  Janet (Jacqui Maxwell), undergoes emergency surgery. It is touch and go, with Janet going into cardiac arrest on the table. She survives the ordeal and is taken into Recovery. Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) Bauer catches up with Teri and Alan at the hospital and is eager to question Janet about Kim. Alan is less than eager to have his daughter grilled. When the doctor tells them Janet will soon be awake, Alan is ushered in to see his daughter.

In the room, Alan’s demeanor becomes strangely cool. Janet awakens, says “Daddy?” and, when Alan moves closer… “Who are you?” Clearly, this is not Alan York. He calmly and efficiently smothers the teenager to death.

The sides Richard donated for this episode contain the scene leading up to “Alan’s” shocking reunion with his daughter - Teri, Alan, and Jack out in the hospital corridors. Both the script and the sides are signed by Richard.

2003 Auction item 203 Item 203 -- A copy of the "Judging Amy" script, "Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition," signed by Richard Burgi.

Richard joined the cast of the hit CBS series Judging Amy during the second half of the Fall 2001 season, taking over the role of Michael Cassidy, series lead Amy (Amy Brenneman) Grey’s ex-husband and father of their child Lauren (Karle Warren). “Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition,” which aired May 14th ’02, was his second episode as the self-centered Michael, and was the start of the child custody story arc which would continue through January ’03.

In this episode, Michael turns up at Amy’s Chambers and asks her out to lunch. Their short walk to the restaurant allows them to stroll down memory lane until Amy is called back to court. Lunch becomes dinner instead, and Michael reveals his true intentions over the breadsticks - he would like to change the custody arrangement for Lauren and take her to live with him and second wife Leisha. 

Richard’s signature graces the title page of the script, which is his working copy.

Final bid on this item: $100--


2003 Auction item 204 Item 204 -- A copy of the "Trash" pilot script,  titled "Trash," signed by Richard Burgi.

Richard brought in 2003 with a role in the new Chris Thompson-produced comedy Trash, a pilot for the WB network's Fall 2003 season, playing Bud Blue, father of a teenage daughter named Luna. (Thompson was part of the team behind the controversial and scathing Hollywood insider comedy Action).

Trash was set in Antelope Valley, a community north of the Los Angeles metro area. Mac, 16 1/2, and his mother move from Los Angeles to her home-town, taking up residence in a trailer park. Mac's best friend is Gypsy, also 16. Gypsy's brother is considered the town bad boy. Naturally, they all live in the trailer park. 

Mac gets a job mowing the lawn of the more well-to-do Blues and promptly falls for the lovely Luna. Bud, it just so happens, has history with Mac's mother; he stood her up at the prom and ran off with -- and married -- some rich girl from the good side of town. Luna's mother -- and Mac's father -- are no longer in the picture. Naturally, Bud is less than thrilled to discover Mac's interest in his daughter and tries to warn him off. 

The series was described by E! Entertainment TV's Kimberly Potts (TV Scoop) as "Romeo and Juliet set in a trailer park," and further described by Potts as "the early contender for what could either be the funniest new sitcom of next season or the worst, most offensive new sitcom of next season." 

Sadly, Trash was never given the opportunity to prove Potts right on either count, as the WB passed on the show. This makes Trash an unaired pilot and the script a truly rare item, as scripts are not available for purchase at memorabilia houses unless a show is aired. The script, which Richard kindly signed for us, is his working copy.

Minimum bid on item 204: $25--

Final bid on this item: $100--


2003 Auction item 205 Item 205 -- A copy of the "Firefly" script, "the Message," (an episode as yet unaired in the USA) signed by Richard Burgi.

Created and produced by Joss Whedon and Tim Minear, the team behind WB hits Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, Firefly seemed like a sure thing for FOX. Unfortunately, the Western-flavored sci-fi series was fumbled by FOX, and later dropped from the schedule before all the episodes produced could be aired.

Richard was brought in for “The Message,” the final episode of the original thirteen-episode order. His character, Lieutenant Womack of Allied Enforcement - an unsavory and unscrupulous Alliance Enforcement officer - was to have become a recurring character had the show been picked up by FOX for the rest of the season and beyond. 

“The Message” is one of three episodes currently unaired in the United States, and as with Trash, until the show is broadcast, the only scripts available are those initially belonging to the actors and production crew. This makes Richard’s signed,  personal copy of the script, used during filming of “The Message,” a rare find indeed.

Final bid on this item: $150--


2003 Auction item 206 Item 206 -- A commemorative "Wheelmen" cap, plus a copy of the "Wheelmen" script, signed by Richard Burgi.

Midway through the grueling filming schedule on the first season of FOX’s 24, Richard found himself with a new movie  - the indie production Wheelmen. The film, a mix of comedy and action, revolves around an unlikely group of heroes - the drivers of Venture Limousine, headed by one-time hotshot ambulance driver, Nick Torino (Richard Burgi)

Nick’s claim to fame - breaking every traffic rule in the book in an effort to get a pregnant woman to the hospital in time to save her and her baby - also proved his undoing; He was fired by the ambulance company before the publicity died down. Six years later, Nick operates Venture Limousine for the absentee owner. He is surprised at work one day by the appearance of a young boy - Arthur, the baby whose life he saved in the ambulance. While trying to find a suitable home for young Arthur, Nick and his team must protect the Vice President (Avery Brooks) from a madcap kidnap scheme.

Wheelmen is currently awaiting a distribution deal and as it has yet to be premiered before a paying audience, the script is unavailable at script houses - which makes Richard’s personal copy of the script, which he graciously signed for us, a rare find. The script is paired with a genuine piece of Wheelmen memorabilia, a crew cap bearing the Wheelmen logo.

Final bid on this item: $175-- 


2003 Auction item 207 Item 207 -- A copy of the "Johnny on the Spot" script, plus an official play poster, both signed by Richard Burgi.

Richard Burgi’s involvement with Johnny on the Spot dates back to 2001 at the very least, when  he was cast as Fred and Sy in the earliest performances of the play - directed readings. His involvement with Neil Landau, writer of the play, goes back to the TV show Twice in a Lifetime and before that, to his UPN series The Sentinel, for which Landau scripted an episode.  Richard would go on to play Fred and Sy when Johnny on the Spot started its Summer 2002 run at the Matrix Theatre in Los Angeles. 

Johnny on the Spot takes us on a whirlwind tour through the past and future of Johnny, a ne’er-do-well underachiever who has just lost his job and pushed his pregnant girlfriend Drea to the end of her endurance. Richard plays Fred Graves, a George Burns-like past client of Johnny's who haunts the young slacker, and Sy, Johnny's psychotic stepfather.

Richard signed and donated his script from the earliest directed readings, which includes director’s notes and information on the format of the performance. Richard was joined for these directed readings by Taylor Nichols as Johnny, Lisa Kudrow as Drea/Dot/Fantasy Mom, John Cardone as Ray/Dean, John Prosky as Joe, and Michael Welch as Joey.  It is interesting to note how much the cast changed between this read on November 28, 2001 and the Matrix premiere of the play in May 2002.

2003 Auction item 301 Item 301 -- A set of January 28th, 2003 sides for "Trash," plus a set of April 8th, 2003 sides for "Decoys," both signed by Richard Burgi.

While the origin of the term “sides” is unclear, the purpose of them is not; these handy quarter-scale copies of specific script pages, together with the day’s call sheet, give actors and crew alike a quick and easy -- and inconspicuous -- pocket reference for each day of filming. Bear in mind, most productions do not film scenes in strict script order; for instance, scenes using the same location will often be shot in succession even if separated by several hours or days of “script time.” Richard’s first appearance in the “Decoys” script as Detective Kirk could easily be one of the last of many scenes Richard filmed while working on “Decoys.”

The “Decoys” sides, from the April 8th, 2003 day of filming – day 26 -- feature Richard Burgi’s introduction as Detective Francis Kirk. A dead body – one of the young men attending the local college – has been found out on the snow-covered campus grounds, and Kirk is called in. As the sides put it:

“A small group of students is beginning to gather. They watch as crime scene tape is pulled out and TECHIES of all sorts bring out their equipment. A male detective is coordinating everyone. Meet DETECTIVE FRANCIS KIRK.

He’s a young cop who knows that he won’t be in this small town busting college students for party pranks for much longer. He thinks he belongs somewhere between NYPD BLUE and the cover of GQ.”

The “Trash” sides, from the January 28th, 2003 day of filming – day 2 of 7 – feature an assortment of Richard’s scenes as Bud Blue, blocked together for filming by their location settings at the Bud Blue Mansion. The scenes, in filming order, are 16, 39, 37, 36, 14, 13, and 38 – definitely not in script chronological order. Richard’s first scene of the day as Bud Blue features him catching young Mac and Luna off-guard not long after their first meeting.

2003 Auction item 401 Item 401 -- An official RBFC 8x10 Membership Photo, signed by Richard Burgi.

This 8x10 black & white photo was taken in Colorado by Lori Burgi, who very kindly agreed to help the RBFC in our search for a new Membership Packet photo of Richard. The very attractive informal shot quickly found its way into more mainstream use, turning up on the cast portraits board at the Matrix Theater during Richard’s Summer 2002 run in Johnny on the Spot. 

Though this delightful photo by Lori Burgi is usually only available in new RBFC  Membership packets,  this is your chance to add an autographed copy to your collection!  (Though we would, of course, recommend signing up for Membership, as the photo is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg…)

Remember, this rare photo is signed by Richard Burgi, and the proceeds of its auction will support one of Richard’s chosen charities!

2003 Auction item 402 Item 402 -- A publicity still from the "bridge jump" location for "Switchman," the pilot episode of "The Sentinel," signed by Richard Burgi.

This 8x10 color photo was taken during the pilot when Jim Ellison was about to jump off the bridge to save the bus full of passengers from “The Switchman.”  Richard Burgi mugs for the camera just minutes before plunging to his fate.

2003 Auction item501 Item 501 -- The jewel in our Auction collection. Jim Ellison's black leather car coat, by J.Crew, Size Large. This coat featured prominently in Ellison's wardrobe in second and third seasons, and was given to Richard Burgi when "The Sentinel" ended its production run. Truly a one-of-a-kind piece of "Sentinel" memorabilia, which Richard very generously donated. 

Included with the coat is a copy of the Fall 1997 publicity still of Richard as Jim Ellison (pictured in the center of our photo montage at bottom left), which Richard kindly signed for us.

Roughly equivalent to a Men's 41 or 42 Long in size, this Large J.Crew car coat has a warm quilted liner and inner pocket, with three additional outer pockets. The sleeves and body of the coat are traditionally hemmed rather than elasticized, with a five-button closure.

Richard's -- or rather, Ellison's -- car coat appeared in the following episodes, to name a few:

Second Season
- Black or White
- Blind Man's Bluff
- Hear No Evil
- His Brother's Keeper
- Private Eyes
- Secret
- Smart Alec

Third Season
- Finkelman's Folly
- Love Kills
- Mirror Image
- Red Ice
- Remembrance
