A Conversation between LBJ and Lady Bird
8/4/1964 - 8:35 PM
Near the close of a day filled with crises, Lady Bird Johnson offers LBJ her comfort and support.
Operator: There you are.
Lady Bird: Yes, beloved.
LBJ: Did you want me?
Lady Bird: I just wanted to see you whenever you were all alone.
Lady Bird: Just merely to tell you I loved you, that's all.
LBJ: Well, I'll be over there. Are the [Judge and Mrs. Robert "Bobby"] Russells still there?
Lady Bird: No. They left at 3:30 this afternoon, dear.
LBJ: Well, I'll be darned. Well, why didn't they tell me goodbye?
Lady Bird: Uh, because I guess they just--they figured you just didn't have a moment.
LBJ: I'll be darned. Well, any other news?
Lady Bird: Nothing in comparison to yours, darling.
LBJ: I'm trying to get Senator [Barry] Goldwater, and I'll come over just as soon as I get through.
Lady Bird: Honey, bring anybody who's a bachelor, or who wants to eat, or who would otherwise be doing without supper until real late, with you, will you?
Lady Bird: Bye.
