Paul Lynde makes his first appearance on "The Tonight Show". He brings Johnny a giant pencil with erasers on both ends, like the ones Johnny has on his desk. They talk about aspects of show business, including his touring show; he avoided "The Tonight Show" and other personal performances for years, due to his preference for working from a script. He and Johnny recall some of his highlight moments on "Hollywood Squares", and he talks about being approached by fans. Lynde says he was not a good student in college; he only graduated by a special act of the Student Senate on the morning of his graduation day. He talks about his father's influence, and says he became serious about his career after his father died. He also talks about working in nightclubs in New York City. Next comes the Tea Time Movie sketch with Carol Wayne, but the prop jokes fall so flat that Johnny ends the sketch early by hiding under the counter and pulling it offstage. McLean Stevenson talks about his recent trip ...

And so, uh... it was a snap course - it was one of those courses where everybody else in it was a football player. And I think it was drawer arrangement or somethin' like that. And, uh...
Sock sorting, and that type of thing?
