My worst moment: 'Psych' star James Roday Rodriguez and the stomach-emptying day on set

Nina Metz, Chicago Tribune on

The takeaway ...

"Don't go down below to nap. That's an obvious one, right?

"But also, in a situation where it's time-sensitive and money-sensitive and you have 150 people on a crew who all want to get home to their families at the end of the day, unless you are bleeding out, you push through it. That's what you do.

"And I think you could probably apply that lesson to any number of occupations, but for ours especially, the whole machine comes to a stop if I have to stop. And I think I was just mortified by the idea of having to shut down and costing us two hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars. We have it so good as it is, we're overpaid and we basically get paid to play dress-up, and on the rare occasion when you're faced with adversity you better be able to push through that.

"So it forever will live in 'Psych' lore as the one where I puked my way through a whole scene."
