Ladies and gentlemen,

please welcome Bill Cosby !


All right.

Happy to have all of you here.


" you'll know the meaning of this

by end of the show "

When I said to some people

"I'm coming to cerritos,"

they said :
"Ooh, good."

I said :
"We're gonna tape

for a TV show."

So they said :
"Oh, yeah?

What... what... a special for...?"

I said :

So they said :

"Well, which one?"

I said :
"Comedy Central."

So they said..........

" you?"

I said :

"Is this... is this

a new Comedy Central?"

I said :
"No, it's the one

that you see all the time."

So, like, one of the guys

started crying.

So I said :

"What's the matter?"

He said...

"Mr. Cosby's gonna curse."

And they walked away.

So then,

another couple, they said :

"We... we hear you're...

you're gonna do a special."

I said :

So they said :

"On Comedy Central?"

They went like this...

I said :

They said...

"Then uh, we can expect

to see some, uh..."

I said :
"Not really."


what are you gonna do?"

I said :
"I'm gonna

almost talk, that way."

They said :

"What do you mean?"

I said :
"You know,

you aim at it, and you hit it,

but nobody

heard you firing ! "

As you grow,

you find people in your way.

Old people.

Two of 'em, you lived with.

So you become...

A person who,

now managing your life,

you fall in love.

And you see the person

that you want to spend

the rest of your life with.

And you ask that person

to be with you when you die.

I mean... I mean,

that's essentially what I said.

I didn't realize

what I was saying,

but I said that.

I , I thought

I was being romantic.

I said to her,

"I would like to spend

the rest of my life with you."

Well, if you...

see, love...

When... there used to be a time

when songwriters wrote words,

and they...

They had...

"I lov... I'm crazy about you.

I love you.

I just can't think right.

I'm going mad."

And all of that.

And... and...

And it's true !

You're not making any sense.

You want somebody

to be with you until you die.

That's not love.

You know, I don't know

what you can call it,

but it's not romantic either.

I mean, you think about it,

you know, she's there,

and you say,

"I would like to spend

the rest of my life

with you."

Oh, whoops.

Wait a minute.


Wait a minute.

Let's go back and listen

to your grandmother.

After your grandfather died...

And ten years later,

somebody says :

"Grandma, don't you want

to meet somebody, a man?"

"I don't want to take care

of another old man."

See, she's not in love anymore.

Grandma goes :

"Oh, no, you don't.

You don't get me

one of those old things, man."

When you fall in love,

you accept craziness.


Here she is.

Right there.

She's called the "girlfriend."


Now, this person

is wonderful for you.

She will even drink beer...

With you

and lay up in your ar...

She will watch sports...

With you,

and... and even know

your friends by name...

And say the names like

she really likes the person.

She's a wonderful person.

This is the girlfriend.




Loving you!

Pick you up anywhere.

"Come and get me."


Right there.

You can say to her,

"Do you have any money?"

She will... she will say,

"I'm sorry, I don't."

Well, you can't get everything.

There she is.


After 49 years of experience,

she is the lure.

You ever do fishing?

The lure is something

very beautiful,

and it bobs in the water.

And it draws you...


So nice, this person.

So wonderful.

You... you leave her, and she'll

call three minutes later.
