[ laughter ] look, i want you to be kind to me during this monologue tonight. one massacre on this date was enough. [ laughter ] uh, those of you old enough to remember--
10:31 pm
people get very gift-conscious on days like this, and i want to thank the lady from the audience who left the long-stemmed american beauty in my dressing room. [ laughter ] although your daughter seems like a nice girl, i can't get her on the show. you were ahead of me, weren't ya? [ laughter ] by the way, if you're out here as tourists-- especially today and you-- [ applause ] welcome. all right. and if you're up on hollywood boulevard and you see a man walking along dressed as cupid, that does not mean it's valentine's day, that-that means it's murray. he dresses that way every single day. [ laughter ] well, maybe he doesn't. [ laughter ] love is in the air today. valentine's day. and remember, before you fall head over heels on love with someone you just met, remember the initials of valentine's day.
10:32 pm
[ applause ] i always wax nostalgic on valentine's day, and i-i-- which i do occasionally. i wax several days, but especially on valentine's day. i think of my youth back on the plains of nebraska and my very first girlfriend. she was an italian girl, gina statutory. [ laughter ] i'll never forget the first time i saw gina in school. she was starring in a hygiene film called "don't let this happen to you." [ laughter ] lovely girl. [ laughter ] the, uh, farmer that lives at-- do you-do you still send valentine's day cards? is that still a thing to do? [ applause ] sure. remember the ones you made as kids with the little lace around them. big red hearts. the farmer that lives next door to billy carter sent billy a valentine's day card that says, "roses are red, violets are blue, and they're watered daily
10:33 pm
[ laughter ] [ applause ] you know i mentioned that day-- today is the 50th anniversary of the st. valentine's day massacre. remember that? in chicago? in remembers that-- in remembrance of that date, nbc lined all the members of its programming department up against a wall today and machine-gunned them. [ laughter ] it's kind of an in-house joke, and i think we should probably keep that in the house. [ laughter ] california governor jerry brown sent his girlfriend, linda ronstadt, a little valentine's day poem. is there a-- there's a fly buzzing around-- [ laughter ] this monologue is starting to spoil. [ laughter ] [ applause ] it's turning bad right here. what did i start to say? what was i talking about? jerry brown sent linda ronstadt the same kind that says, "roses
10:34 pm
i love you, pretty lady, but i am more in love with 1980." [ laughter ] which wasn't as funny as the guy sent billy carter. well, i know you're all anxious to find out what's the latest in the lee marvin-michelle triola trial. for those of you who missed the papers today, i want to keep you up to date on these important events. apparently today, michelle triola's trial would not allow michelle's lawyer to sue. she-- he wanted to sue for an additional one million dollars. now mrs. triola's lawyer, who's a fellow by the name of marvin mitchelson, claimed that when lee marvin said, "i love you," and then said he didn't mean it, that is fraud. [ laughter ] look, everybody knows when a man says, "i love you," it is not fraud, it's temporary insanity. [ laughter ] [ applause ] [ laughter ] now that we have the important news out of the way,
10:35 pm
what's happening over there. they-they just opened their first soft drink factory over there, since the new government took over. it's called the ayatollah cola. [ laughter ] and it's, uh-- it gives gas to everyone but americans. [ laughter ] [ applause ] it's really great. yeah. uh, the president is off to mexico, as you know. and, uh-- oh, he's already there. as a matter of fact, uh, president portillo of mexico took president carter on kind of a sight-seeing trip, and the mexican president showed jimmy carter the home of the former bandit pancho villa. and carter was so impressed he said, when portillo comes here, he's gonna show him the home of bert lance. [ laughter ] [ applause ] carter just doesn't say things funny. did you ever notice that? [ laughter ] you realize, of course, while the president is out of the country, the acting president is walter mondale. yes.
10:36 pm
well-- oh! now here are some of the important things that walter's accomplished since carter went to mexico. he, uh-- he oiled the swivel chair in the oval office so he could swivel without squeaking. he, uh, called the maytag repair man and said, "what do you do to kill a day?" [ laughter ] and he called, uh, brezhnev-- brzezinski and told him to keep his hands off of rodeo drive. [ laughter ] between carter and mondale, it's been a political wipe-out tonight. [ laughter ] moving along to the sports news. see i jump from one subject to another. it doesn't-- if one thing doesn't work, we keep plunging ahead. former ohio state football coach, woody hayes, is in town. and he's here to discuss the possibility of a movie based on his life. i understand this afternoon woody is up at grauman's chinese theater, where they pressed his fist in cement.
10:37 pm
[ applause ] but, uh-- but i understand he's like any other tourist. he stopped along sunset boulevard-- you know, one of those guys on the street-- and bought a map of the stars' throats. [ laughter ] well, we didn't. who cares? here's the strange news item of the day. women have found-- according to a news item in the los angeles times, women have found that birth control pills in the soil will stimulate the growth of their houseplants. [ laughter ] that's-- don't ask me why, but-- it also enables your petunias to pollinate without fear of morning sickness. [ laughter ] which is a side effect. we have a, um-- a pretty good show tonight, don't we? >> yes. >> what? >> yes! >> yes, we do. be enthusiastic.

10:40 pm
10:41 pm
[ applause ] [ applause ] >> we are back. crowd's in a good mood tonight. we got a good show. chuck heston, johnny yune, blair brown, and jack douglas is with us tonight. jack douglas-- if you don't know who jack is-- he's one of the crazed writers who has written for every top comedian in the business and, uh, he always uses-- brings some, uh, home movies. which are the wildest home movies you have ever seen. they make absolutely no sense at all. but jack will tell you what is happening or not happening during them. uh, from time to time-- as you know, doc travels around the country and tommy, for various things, and other guys in the band. and tommy is gonna be-- tommy newsom i'm talking about.

[ applause ] you be a good old boy when you're down there, tom. well, this is the time of the year, as you know-- it's only-- it's only what? february? >> um-hmm. >> and already the, uh-- the networks are planning their new television shows for the fall season. it's been rather a tough season for television. it's a tough, competitive business, because every-- as you know, last sunday all the networks programmed three big shows opposite each other. "gone with the wind," "cuckoo's nest," an elvis special. and a lot of shows get knocked off the air before they get a chance. nbc did over 50 pilots themselves, and, uh, i'm gonna give you-- i don't think these are all nbc pilots, the ones i'm gonna tell you about. but these are the actual names of new shows coming up or projected for the fall.

"gossip" is a gang comedy-- that's what they call it-- taking place in the office of the national gossip, about a couple of newsmen trying to make a go of the publication. "yu." i think this has to do with johnny yune, doesn't it? this is spelled y-u. a dramatic series with comedy
10:46 pm
works in the beverly hills area while working as a comedian as a cover. [ laughter ] that has to do with the young man who is with us tonight, johnny yune. now here's one. this is my favorite. when i read this one-- "king tut's best friend." [ laughter ] this is about an 11-year-old boy who gets a pyramid for his birthday and travels back in time to egypt where he befriends king tut. [ laughter ] sure, you laugh, but that's going on, folks. well, now. if you're laughing at those-- for every pilot that is made that goes on, there are probably 30 or 40 that do not make it at all. we have some stills, some photographs, from some of these unsuccessful new shows. >> never before seen. >> never before seen. and these shows probably will not be on the air. unless-- well, unless some of those others-- >> yeah. >> like the house painter doesn't make it. you watch the monitor. for example, here's a-- here's one about a new detective series called "lieutenant columbo animal division."
