Orson Bean's quotes

  • The trap is man's armored character structure and there's only one way out of it. It's not drugs and it's not religion and it's not politics. It's going back to the old apple tree and trying to do better than Adam and Eve did.
  • [on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962), 2/56/76, about his pierced left ear] What the hell? I think, you know, if a pirate can wear an earring, why can't I wear an earring? Why should we be the only male of a species that isn't into adornment?
  • [on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962), 5/25/78, about his pierced left ear] I say it's for purposes of self-adornment. That's all. And, you know, we are the only species in life where the male is less grand than the female.
  • [referring to one of the world's deadliest snakes] The Gabon Viper, so named because it bites you on the gabon.
  • In the days of "Hey, hey! LBJ! How many kids did you kill today?", that's nothing compared to the vitriol of today. So people basically shut up. at least until they get into the ballot box. That's why you can't trust the polls.
