Bob Newhart's quotes

  • Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.
  • Women are more emotional. They do get flustered. Which is not to say that men are better than they. It's simply the way it is.
  • [In 1972]: The reason I'm a psychologist is based in part on my telephone routines. Much of my humor comes out of reaction to what other people are saying. A psychologist is a man who listens, who is sympathetic.
  • [In 1973]: I've been told to speed up my delivery when I perform. But if I lose the stammer, I'm just another slightly amusing accountant.
  • [Referring to his 1961 variety show]: It won an Emmy, a Peabody Award and a pink slip from NBC. All in the same year.
  • [In 1976]: As far as gambling, just ask any of the dealers in the Las Vegas casinos and they'll tell you that woman can't play blackjack. They can't add up the cards fast enough.
  • [In 1979]: Television series are like the stock market. There's room for bears and bulls but no room for pigs. If we'd tried to milk another year out of the series, we'd have wound up with a pig.
  • It worked for Jack Benny. He certainly had the secret for career longevity: surround yourself with funny people. I guess I'll just never learn to live like a star. Jack Lord was born that way; I just can't get the hang of it.
  • [on the cancellation of Newhart (1982)]: I don't have a show anymore. I don't have a check coming in every week. This is important to me, I got to score a million tonight or it could all be over.
  • You may not think I'm a sex symbol, but I became a father at the age of 48. Now young people think of me as a mini-folk hero because it's difficult for them to believe a man of my age is sexually active.
  • [In 1974]: There are a lot of questions I keep asking myself about why I do comedy. I guess I laugh to keep from crying. And I guess if you ever get me crying, I might not stop. This is the way I look at tragedy or else I'll cry.
  • [In 1975]: I remember once when I emceed 'The Tonight Show' in New York, I arrived with my manager's son. After a while, they asked, 'When are the rest of your people coming?' I had to say, 'This is it.'
  • [When asked about the death of his former co-star and best friend, Suzanne Pleshette, in 2008]: Her laugh. Her laugh. We just left, we just had a great time. We all loved each other and respected each other and we got paid for it.
  • [In 1980]: You must realize that I'm supposed to run a marathon in this picture. That's more than 26 miles.
  • [on turning 60 in 1989]: I don't worry about it. I still feel 30, except when I try to run. But it goes by so damn fast. We lost a very dear friend recently. And all I can say about life is, 'Oh, God, enjoy it.'
  • [In 1986]: Look at what we have now. We've got Bill Cosby and 'Moonlighting,' and who knows, maybe 'Newhart' helped start it all.
  • [In 1988]: I check to see what jokes we left out and what works and what doesn't.
  • The fact they're not there anymore is not a reflection on the actors. It's just that viewers didn't like it. You went, 'What the hell was that?'
  • I am also huddling with creative advisers and studying the possibility of calling it The.
