Eight years after watching this show, Oprah Show viewer Lynne was attacked by a career criminal. She says Sanford's advice flashed through her mind, and she decided she had to fight back. "I wouldn't go with him. And I said to him at that moment, 'If you're going to kill me, kill me here and kill me now, because I'm not going with you.' I fought him, and I survived."
Lynne says he ran off and was later captured by police, who found out that he had kidnapped and murdered a woman the week before.
