Dick Smothers: (about his relationship with his brother Tom) Things are a lot better now. We're a lot more focused. And we are performing better than ever before and enjoying our lives, too.

Dick Smothers: (concerning his son the porn star) He's really pleased that he's doing something that's causing me a lot of consternation. He's ringing my bell. It's 'Dad, I'm here, and like it or not, I'm not going away.' If that gets him somewhere, good. Fine. But I'm not going to make any judgments about it. It didn't affect our relationship.
