Frasi Bob Newhart


„La risata ci dà distanza. Ci consente di fare un passo indietro da un evento, confrontarci con esso e poi proseguire.“

„A New York c'è una violenza pazzesca. Sul giornale di oggi c'era la notizia di un leone che si è liberato dallo zoo di Central Park ed è stato seriamente malmenato.“


„Non avere mai due cani. Perché non sapresti mai a quale dare la colpa.“

„Non mi piace la musica country, ma non intendo denigrare coloro a cui piace. E per le persone a cui piace la musica country, denigrare significa ‘buttare giù’.“

„I think you should be a child for as long as you can. I have been successful for 74 years being able to do that.“

„I am a minimalist. I like saying the most with the least.“

„I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down'.“

„Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.“


„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.“

„All I can say about life is "Oh God, enjoy it.“

„I still feel 30, except when I try to run.“

„I've been married forty-five years. I think laughter is the secret.“


„Well, if you’re a native Chicagoan, you know how dumb he [Dr. Robert Hartley] is. He gets on the Ravenswood El, he goes past his stop on Sheridan Road, he gets off in Evanston, where the El is on the ground, and then he walks back 55 blocks to his apartment. Now, would you want to have that man as a psychologist? A man who misses his stop every day?“

„I'm one of those passengers who arrives at the airport five or six hours early so I can throw back a few drinks and muster up the courage to board the plane. Apparently I'm not alone because I've never been in an empty airport bar. I don't care what time you get there. Even at 8:00 a. m. you have to fight your way to the bar. At that hour, everyone drinks Bloody Marys so no one can tell it's booze- at least until they fall off their chair.“

„A guy walks into a psychologist's convention with a banana in his pocket. When asked about the significance of this he says; well, they were all out of grapes.“

„[On playing another character that was not Dr. Bob Hartley]: I think you're lucky when you realize what you are. Spencer Tracy always played Spencer Tracy. I'm not putting myself into that category, but, to the same extent, the part of me that was Bob Hartley is in my new character, Dick Loudin. If you make fine bone china and you're recognized as the best in the world, you don't suddenly announce you're going to make automobiles. We see it so much in this business. We're so self-destructive. If you really do something well, you should stick to it.“
