Inside The Mind of Bill Cosby

Inside the Mind of Bill Cosby (1972) is an album of stand up comedy by Bill Cosby. It is the fifteenth such album he released, but only the fourth on Uni Records (when that label folded, the album was distributed by its parent company, MCA). The album is available on compact disc, but to date the other Uni albums have not been so released.

Unlike many of his other albums, on which his youth provided the source of his routines, Cosby's material here centers mostly on contemporary incidents with his family, notably the tracks "Bedroom Slippers" (involving back-yard play by his youngest daughter and their dogs) and "Froofie The Dog" (involving his oldest daughter wanting to watch the television while Bill himself is watching Gunsmoke). His youth is explored in the album's closing track, "Slow Class."

    The mother may be doing ninety percent of the disciplining, but the father still must have a full-time acceptance of all the children. He never must say, “Get these kids out of here; I’m trying to watch TV.” If he ever does start saying this, he is liable to see one of his kids on the six o’clock news.
    Bill Cosby (20th century)

    There was a young lady of Ryde
    Who swallowed some apples and died.
    The apples fermented
    Inside the lamented
    And made cider inside her inside.

    Ultimately, it is the receiving of the child and hearing what he or she has to say that develops the child’s mind and personhood.... Parents who enter into a dialogue with their children, who draw out and respect their opinions, are more likely to have children whose intellectual and ethical development proceeds rapidly and surely.
    Mary Field Belenky (20th century)

    Little Bill Daggett: I don’t deserve this. To die like this. I was building a house.
    Will Munny: Deserve’s got nothing to do with it.
    David Webb Peoples, screenwriter. Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman)

    Any man today who returns from work, sinks into a chair, and calls for his pipe is a man with an appetite for danger.
