Of all the talk shows, there's only one show that doesn't hesitate to take up such serious issues as teenage prostitution, aliens from outer space or breast implants in the Dick Dietrick style. Written by
Talk shows have always taken themselves way too seriously - and that meant they were ripe for being parodied. It's a shame that this show didn't last much longer - it was incredibly funny. Where else could you see Florence Henderson spanking a grown man? Dick always had hot babes and tons of sexual innuendos on his show. Among the best quotes, I think (they're not exact,) are the following:
(Scene: Dick convinces a woman to go out with him, only to find out it's a transvestite. I think this in the episode "Getting Even.") Dick [exasperated]: You couldn't have done this alone... you had to have had help on it... who could be so mean, who could be so evil as to inflict this on me? Voice (From off screen): That would be me. Dick [angered]: Springer!!!
(Scene: A woman in a tight leotard has just been shaking her stuff, showing us how to defend ourselves in and work out at the same time.) Woman: Why don't you try it, Dick? Dick: No... I'm a little stiff here. (Audience laughs.) Dick: Oh, People... don't make this harder than it is.
(Scene: I believe this is in the episode "Dick's High School Reunion.") Woman: I went out with the biggest loser to get back at my ex-boyfriend. (the loser, is of course, Dick.) Dick: Well, when we come back we'll find out who that loser was...
