[ laughter ] >> what do you mean he doesn't care for you. >> well, he doesn't understand me holding the leash, so i go along just for the walk.

11:35 pm
some years ago called beau, right? the day after you did that poem on the air, i think for the next three or four days in our offices at the tonight show, the phone did not stop ringing. everybody in the country wanted a copy of that poem. and i understand you are going to do that one from the book tonight, right? >> yeah. >> do you want to use the book or do you know it -- >> well, i -- i -- where are my specks? i -- i -- i may -- let's see. [ laughter ] let -- let's see. you never -- you never came to me when i would call unless i had a tennis ball, or -- or he felt like it, but mostly he didn't come at all. when he was young he never learned to heel or sit or stay. he did things his way. discipline was not his bag. but when you were with him
11:36 pm
[ laughter ] uh, didn't drag. [ laughter ] >> yeah-yeah-yeah. >> he -- he's dig up a rosebush just to -- to spite me, and when i would grab him he would turn and bite me. he bit lots of folks from day-to-day, the delivery boy was his favorite prey. [ laughter ] the gas man wouldn't read our meter, he said he had a true man eat-er. [ laughter ] and he set the house on fire, but the story is long to tell. suffice to say that he survived and the house survived as well. on evening walks gloria took him, and they were always first out the door, the old one, you know,
11:37 pm
[ laughter ] we brought up the rear because our bones were sore, and he would charge up the street with gloria hanging on, what a beautiful pair they were and if it was still light and the tourists were out, they created a bit of a stir. but every once in a while he would stop in his tracks and with a frown on his face look arrange, it was just to make sure that the old one was there to follow him where he was bound. we're early to bedders in our house, i guess i'm the first to retire, and when i get up and cross the room, he looks up from me and gets up from his place by the fire. he knew where the tennis balls were upstairs, and i would give him one for a while. he would nudge it under the bed with his nose, and i would dig it out with a smile.
11:38 pm
tire of the ball and was asleep in the corner in no time at all. and there were nights when i'd feel him climb upon our bed, and lie between us, and i would pat his head. and there were nights when i'd feel this stare and i would wake up and he would be sitting there. and i would reach out my hand to stroke his hair, and sometimes i'd feel him sigh, and i think i know the reason why. he -- he'd wake up at night, and he would have this fear of -- of the dark, of life, of anything, and he -- he would be glad to
11:39 pm
and there are nights when i think i feel him climb upon our bed, and lie between us, and i would pat his head, and there are nights when i think i feel him stare, and i reach out my hand to stroke his hair, but he -- he's not there. oh, how i wish that wasn't so. i'll always love a dog named beau.

11:46 pm
missing, but it has no teeth. the way it catches fish is to inhale the water. sucks it in like a vacuum sweeper. >> what-- through the mouth? >> right through the mouth and the fish go in with the water and then it expels it. >> it's not a very attractive turtle, is it? >> it's not very attractive. but we on mutual of omaha's wild kingdom, we filmed a lot of these. they are very superstitious about them. we put them down there. >> now, is there a turtle in that box. >> yeah, we got one to really show you, john. >> i don't believe this is a turtle, folks. somebody wanted me to put this box up here, right? >> if you will put the box up -- >> oh, my god. >> wow! >> we have got some word records here tonight. and ed you may have to keep this box from moving because this is not easy. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] better put that coffee over
11:47 pm
[ laughter ] i didn't want to have to bench press this. >> what the hell is this? >> this is -- [ laughter ] this is one of the largest turtles in the -- fresh water turtles in our country. it's called the alligator snapping turtle. >> in this country? >> in this country. this is the thing you sometimes go swimming with in the southeast, throughout north florida and georgia. but there are some fascinating things about it. let me see if i can get him to open his mouth up. and johnny if you'll get that celery over there on the table. [ laughter ] >> get outta here! >> no, there is a stick back here. you get that stick, okay? because i want you to help me show you something here -- don't get too close, now, look, the thing i want to show you, it has a fishing lure under the tongue. if you put that celery in there, lift the tongue up,

[ laughter ] >> but one of the most incredible stories is the story of a python that was found under a house in fort lauderdale. that's been on the news lately. we have a film clip of that. >> let's show the film clip. we got it from wtvj,
11:53 pm
watch this. >> nobody knew this snake was living in fort lauderdale. >> apparently, this was released as a pet some years ago. this had been living under a house, i guess nobody knows for sure how long, right? >> it could have been 12 to 15 years. >> was this house occupied? >> it was occupied by a family. the kids had told the adults that they had seen this thing occasionally, and nobody believed them. so todd hardwig from a group called pesky critters were called to go in and catch the snake. so, we thought of all the places we should show a big snake, it would be your show. >> now you are going to see this snake live. >> we have got to -- >> what is this we stuff? [ laughter ] >> well, this may be a world record. it has never been measured properly. >> we're going to measure it tonight, folks. >> and if you don't mind helping. >> i can dthat.
11:54 pm
than the snake, right? >> this is todd hardwig from pesky critters. >> you dug this thing out from under the house? >> todd's the one that went in and got it. >> you had to tunnel down, i understand? >> it took two days of tunneling right into his lair. >> good lord. >> i'm going to be the head man and get over here. we're going to need some help. todd, if you'll get the other side, okay? by the way, johnny this is not a very safe snake. we are going to have to handle this rather carefully. >> you do that. >> we'll feed it out here. i wanna go down here. you come down with me. >> i cannot believe -- >> here we go. by the way, we're -- i'm very concerned not to stress this snake. we want to handle it very carefully. >> how much would this snake weigh? >> it's over 200 pounds. >> all right-- let's see if we can stretch him out. >> let's stretch him out, john. >> ed, you hold it on the tail. >> this is joe and john.
11:55 pm
>> down at the tail. wait a minute, we have got to get the loops out of it. [ laughter ] >> we have 20 feet 2 inches. >> somebody had to help on this end -- >> that's close enough! [ laughter ] >> let's try again. >> real quick. >> wait a second. [ laughter ] >> there you go. >> okay. that's it. >> you know when you had him out here, i had it at 20'2". i don't want to stress him more. >> it's over 20 feet. >> the reason we're handling the snake that way is we want
11:56 pm
see one this big. >> i've never seen a snake that large in my life. what does he eat? >> well, he has been -- >> how did he live under the house? >> he has been eating apparently raccoons. >> raccoons? >> raccoons. >> how often would a snake like this-- let's go on back. >> it's -- >> you got him? >> yes, sir. [ laughter ] >> this is -- you can help on this if you would like? >> no, thanks, jim. you guys are doing a marvelous job.

( audience laughs ) listen, why don't those kids give the party upstairs? because they want jack to be surprised. why don't you try and be nice to him? why should i be nice to him? well, i told you: they want jack to be surprised. ( laughter ) how's your cake coming? it's all finished. let me see, let me see. what do you think? great. look. "happy birthda"? where's the "y"? oh. ( laughter ) oh. and where's the "jack" as in "happy birthday, jack"? do you think we need it? i mean, after all, he knows it's his birthday and he knows his name is jack and we're not going to be singing "happy birthday, harry." that makes sense. chrissy, i just thought of something. how will we get jack to the roper's apartment?
12:35 am
you see, when he comes in i'm going to say, "oh, we're out of orange juice" which we both know is his favorite drink. so he'll go down to the market where, surprise! mrs. roper will be waiting to take him to the regal beagle where, surprise! mr. roper will just happen to be waiting for a telephone call from me telling him to come right back with jack. surprise! chrissy, when jack comes in, why don't you just say "let's me and you go for a walk on the beach" then keep him there half an hour and come back. yeah, that might work, too. ( laughter ) aren't you going to put a border on this cake? oh, yeah. huh! ( laughter ) ( doorbell rings ) mmm, not bad! now put some on the cake. no! no! ( laughter ) oh, hi.
12:36 am
who did you want? i was looking for a man. who isn't? ( laughter ) i thought jack tripper lived here. oh, yeah, he does. oh, well, in that case will you tell him susan walters is here? oh, well, um, i would but, see, he's not here right now. but we expect him back soon. oh, good. i'll wait. ( laughter ) are you the cleaning lady? ( laughter ) no. i live here. and, uh, this here is my roommate, chrissy snow. oh, hi. hello, i'm susan walters. oh, i'm janet wood. susan is a friend of jack's. let me get this straight. you're all roommates? yeah. we're just friends, that's all. we wouldn't want you to think there was anything more. why would i think that?
12:37 am
well, susan, we should apologize. i mean, we don't usually walk around looking like this. oh, i never judge by appearances. after all, people can't help the way they look. ( laughter ) are you and jack good friends? yes, we are. how good? chrissy! we're very close. really? how close? ( yells ) i mean, uh that must have been very nice. yes, it is. funny, jack never mentioned you before. but then again he never talks about any of his affairs. ( laughter ) i mean, he never talks about any of his relations. ( laughter ) i mean... uh, susan, susan have you been seeing a lot of jack? not lately. uh, i've been doing a lot of flying. oh, yeah, i see, right. oh, sure, with him on the ground
