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.
  • [on quitting The Bob Newhart Show (1972) at the end of the fifth season, before CBS wouldn't allow him to do that]: This is no ploy, no device for negotiation. I am absolutely sincere about leaving the series at the end of production this year and CBS has been notified.
  • [Who made his reputation and fortune as a monologist]: I like the humor to come out of character. When you're going for a joke, you're stuck out there if it doesn't work. There's nowhere to go. You've done the drum role and the cymbal clash and you're out on the end of the plank.
  • [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.
