[ some laughter ] >> yeah. >> your son gets married, you just go, get a half in the bag-- "hey, good luck!" [ laughter ] that's it. anyway, welcome. it's friday night. this is "the tonight show," the program that asks the burning question, s wear a sony walkman under his beard?" [ laughter ] think so. i noticed some of the tourists, today. nbc has-- like, uh, a lotta movie studios do-- they have a tour, which-- it is not a charitable thing, either. you have to pay, to go through the halls and look at all the exciting things that are-- [ chuckling ] are going on, here. what do they now charge? uh, anybody on-- been on the tour, today? >> two seventy-five. >> two seventy-five! >> two seventy-five. did they show you the new feature, today? >> no. >> they have a new feature, on the tour.
[ some laughter ] where you can watch dick dawson getting mononucleosis shots. [ laughter ] [ applause ] that man-- he's gonna come down and get it. and, after the program, tonight-- since you're out here, in the san fernando valley-- i recommend, uh, a fine restaurant, on burbank's famed restaurant row. [ some laughter ] new, and opened, last week-- robert's french cuisine, and mufflers repaired, while you wait. [ laughter ] [ some applause ] not a classy place. you order, by speaking to a large, plastic charles de gaulle face. [ laughter ] i went there, the other day, though, to try it out, and the-- [ laughter ] what? >> you went there, already? >> of course! yes. >> d'you get a joke? >> i did. yeah. [ laughter ] [ applause ] they were outta the joke
the cuisine leaves a little bit to be desired. i ordered turtle soup, and, uh, i found a shell, in the bowl, that said, "visit miami beach." [ laughter ] i just don't trust any french restaurant that has photographs of the food, on the cover. that's all right, for denny's, but not for a french restaurant. well, let's see. next week is thanksgiving. have you shopped, for your, uh, turkey, yet? >> yeah! >> president reagan has a few, in his cabinet, he'll let ya h [ applause ] [ cheering ] forgot to mention. i just saw a item, on the-- came over, in the, uh-- the news teletype machine, before i came out here. earth, wind, and fire just insured themselves, for earthquake and flood. [ laughter ] [ some booing ] well, i know. i thought i'd try it. [ some hissing ]
[ laughter ] why do you boo a leveling-off period? i do have some good news and bad news. >> uh-oh. >> the bad news is, unless the house and senate can agree on emergency legislation, the government will run out of money, by midnight. true. >> right. >> good news is the government will now know how the people feel. [ laughter ] [ applause ] [ cheering ] national security advisor richard allen is still the, uh-- the whitehouse has ordered him to check his records, on any contacts he has had with japanese businessmen, and officials are concerned they don't have the full information about his activities. and allen wanted to know if this was gonna take long-- he could put the $1000 in a tax-free saver's account. [ laughter ] that's-that's good thinking. then, haig, you know-- secretary haig and alexa-- and richard, uh, allen have been feuding. and the, uh, president called
as you know, about a week ago, and told 'em to stop-stop the bickering. the president stated, beautifully, i will say-- he said, "look, let's not fight, gentlemen. we're all striving for the same thing-- great pensions." [ some laughter ] president didn't get much of a laugh with it, either. [ laughter ] the, uh-- today, the nuclear regulatory commission suspended the operating license of the diablo canyon nuclear reactor. [ applause ] [ some cheering ] well, wherever you stand on that, uh-- governor brown was pleased. although, there was some bad news, for jerry. they-they opened the reactor room and found a 600-pound s-- fertile medfly. [ laughter ] [ applause ] lotta people thought that their safety precautions were not,
their-their earthquake prediction capabilities were a bit primitive. what they did-- they bugged a gopher hole, [ some laughter ] and they'll shut off the reactor, if they hear the gopher screaming. [ laughter ] what else? i don't suppose you were invited to g-go on the tour of the whitehouse-- the redecorated whitehouse? >> no. >> the first lady, nancy reagan, invited, uh-- gave a tour of the whitehouse, to, i guess, about 200 people, who donated money to redecorate the place. and i was confused, "donors at whitehouse," and i thought they were there to give hearts to haig and stockman. [ some laughter ] [ some booing ] [ some applause ] doesn't seem to be a consensus, on that one, so-- [ laughter ] we have a great show, tonight. lot of good people here, to-- mr. robert hope is here. bob hope.
