Johnny Carson

The Ultimate Carson Collection: Vol. 3
May 21, 1992: Guests Bette Midler and Robin Williams (then filming Toys). Williams jokes that H.W. Bush told Quayle to talk about Jerry Brown and Quayle, confused, spoke about Murphy Brown: “‘Jerry Brown, Jerry Brown, Jerry Brown, Buster Brown, Buster Brown, Buster Brown, Buster Brown, Audie Murphy, Audie Murphy, Audie Murphy…Murphy Brown! Murphy Brown makes me so….’ Don’t you realize that he’s rain man”?!

Williams says that to impersonate H.W., you start with John Wayne and then “tighten up his ass.”

Williams at one point acts out a brief conversation between Quayle and a questioner:
“Dan, what do you think about Roe versus Wade?”
“I prefer to float.”
