Bob Newhart Show, The NBC-TV Network, April 18, 1962. ~. ~ ' ; HOW DID!SIR WALTER RALEIGH SELL HIS TOBACCO? C NEWHART: "Tonight we're going to take a look at the possible origin of the cigarette industry." ; 1~#~## NEWHART: "I think that most of us are inclined to take things for grant- ed. For example, cigarettes and the great tobacco industry. This multimillicn dollar business had very humble origins. It was brought to the attent#nof the civilized world by Sir Walter Raleigh when he brought the first boAtload from North America to England. Now, since the uses of tobacco may not be ob- vious right off the bat, I kept imagining Sir Walter having a little trouble trying to talk the sea'captain into putting it on the ship, and then I im- agined Walt trying to get permission from the home office of the West Indies Company to do it, and I think it must have sounded scmething like this..." , (MUSICAL INTRODUCTION) NEWHART (As an official of the West Indies Company): "Re1lo, who, who's calling? Sir, Sir Walter Raleigh from the Colony. Yeah, put him on, will you? Ah, Harry, pick up your extension, will you? It's nutty Walt again. (LAUGHTER) N "Hi, Walt baby! Good'hearing your voice. Things are fine here, Walt. O The boatload of turkeys you sent us over here last November? They're still ~ here, Walt. Yeah, they're walkin' all over London. (LAUGHTER) You see, 0 that isn't a holiday over here, Walt, just in America. (LAUC~iTER) ~ "You got another winner for us, Sir Walt, have ya? To-bacco. What's 4~h tobacco, Walt? A leaf. You've got 80 tons of it. (LAUGHTER) You~bought kth 80 tons of leaves, Walt? Ha, ha, oh you're beautiful, Walt. (LAUGHTER) Look,(d Walt, I don't know if you noticed last time, we have plenty of lea-:es over here in England. (LAUGHTER) You see, come fall, :m're up to... It'a a special kind of leav? Some k-LZ: of food, i4 it, Walt? Not exactly. What do you do with the leaves, Vilal;.': Lots =~f different things. Ha. \. "Are you~ saying 'snuff;' Walt? (LAUGHTER) And what's snuff? You take a pinch~ of tobacco, and you stick it up your nose. (LAUGHTER) And it makes you sneeze. (LAUGHTER) Ha, ha, ha, I imagine it would, Walt, yeah. Goes over very big there, does it? Yeah, goldenrod seems to do it over here, Walt. (IAUGHTER) - more -

2 "Tobacco has other uses. You can chew it? Or stuff it in a pipe? Or you can shred the leaves, put it in a little piece of paper, roll it up. You don't have to tell me, Walt, you stick it in your ear, right? (LAUGHTER) Between your lips? Okay, Walt, and then what do you do with it? Ha, ha, ha, ha. (NE4Jfi9RT SLAPPED DESit. ) You set fire to it, Walt! (LAUGHTER) Hey, Harry, you want to get on the innercom? I don't want the boys to miss this. (LAUGiTER) Walt, you're puttin' me on, arenJt you. You set fire to it, and then what happens, Walt? You breathe in the smoke. (IAU(HTER) Well, it seems to me you could stand in front of a fireplace and'get the same thing goinJ for you. I don't think we'll be able to move that, Walt. "You know, Walt, we've been a little worried about you since you put your cape down over all that mud. (LAUGiTER) You're all right though, Walt, huh? You see, what bugs me, Walt, is who's going to want to put-burning leaves in his mouth? (LAUGHTER) You don't call 'em burning leaves. You call them a cigarette. Walt, I've got to level with you. I don't care what you call 'em, they're still burning leaves and I don't think people are going to buy ',em. "You have some sales gimmicks? I'd love to hear some of those, Walt. You're going,to add a mint flavor. (LAUGHTER) How much mint? Just a hint. (LAUGHTER) That's not too bad, Walt. Huh? And you're going to make some cigarettes longer than others. Why is that, Walt? It travels the smoke further. (LAUGHTER) That make it better, Walt? You don't know but it's a catchy slogan. (LAUGHTER) "Walt, Wa1t, can you speak up? I can hardly hear yow. What's that noise? You've got the Indian marching band, and they stomp all through this tobacco field? (LAUGHTER) That's the way they get their kicks, Walt, you know. "What's the matter, Walt? You spilled your coffee. What's coffee, Walt? (LAUGHTER) Ha, ha, it's a drink you make out of beans. You roast them, and then you pour them in a cup. (LAUGHTER) You drink it in the morning while you smoke your cogarette! (LAUGHTER) I'm still here, Walt, I'm still here. Look, Walt, I tell you what you do. Put some of those on the boat. If you can hook 'em with the burning leaves, I'm sure they'll go for the bean. (LAUGiTER) I'm with you, Walt. Do me one favor, Walt. Don't call me anymore "' (AF'PLALjSE) `
