Through The Decades with The 700 Club

Enjoy a compilation of memorable moments from past decades of The 700 Club. Read Transcript


The Holy Spirit isn't an optional extra

as some people think it is, as if God

has a smorgasbord of goodies, you

can take some and leave others.

He is going to baptize with the Holy Ghost and fire.

PAT ROBERTSON (VOICEOVER): It's a pleasure to welcome

Hollywood's leading grandfather, Charlton Heston.

So good to have you with us again.

I love to be back again.

Oh, it's a joy!

And one of the most amazing people in the whole country

is our great friend, Pat.

Will you come out here, Pat?

Look at him.

One of the great people.

Yes sir!


I was chosen to do something.

I was never a writer.

I was never an exemplary student.

All of a sudden, one day I started writing "Rocky."

I wrote it in three days, and it wins the Oscar.

And I cannot assume that I did this all on my own.

I really do not believe that for a second.

George, I'm so glad to have you with us.

You've been here on several occasions.

But how does somebody that's as nice as you

get to be a heavyweight champion?

You knock people down.

Only trying to defend myself.

PAT ROBERTSON: Oh, is that what it is?


God bless you.

I'm so glad to see you!

It's been too long.

It has been.

You're looking very well and very fit.

Well, I feel well and I feel fit, and so do you--

you feel great!

Joel, it's so good to see you again!

God bless you.

Well, it's my honor to be here.

Thank you so much.

I grew up watching "The 700 Club."

Good to see you!

God bless you, what a privilege!

You look so good.

You got your boots, I got my bucks.

Hey, hey, you do!

I mean, the same set.

Well, you never stopped.

The perennial college freshman.

You're still-- [LAUGHING]

Mr. President, it's a pleasure to have you

with us on "The 700 Club."

Pat, it's good to see you again, sir.

We need to grasp what made this country great.

We need to rekindle all of those values that

allowed us to love each other.

The G8 is kind of a place to crystallize this,

but what happens after this?

What's the followup that you see across America

and around the world?

Well, it's like you said.

The G8 is just a moment.

It's a start, really.

This is the place where we can begin.

It's a pleasure to welcome back a dear friend, Art Linkletter.

Good to see you.

Thank you, Pat.

Thank you for asking me back.

It's been 35 years, I must not have done well.

Well, we didn't have any kids for you

to interview, that was the problem.

Oh, there were kids, then.

I had invented children in 1941.

Oh, I see, all right.

I don't mean invent, but I used them as people instead of

as professional performers.

Instead of having them play a flute or a piano,

I asked them what their mother told them not to say

when they came on my program.

And they told you.

Yeah, one little boy says, she said

I can say anything I want, but don't get this shirt dirty.

It's brand new and we're going to take it back.

I love it.

Another one said, my mother told me not to tell you

if you have a bad breath.

I said to the kid, well, do I?

And he said, I'd rather not say.

Come here.


You're a good-- d'oh!

(MURMURING) OK, that's enough.

Good to see you, sir.


Thank you all.



Thank you so much.

It's great to have you back with us.

I go a long way back with you.

You sure do!

You were back in the old building in Portsmouth

when we were at--

Yes, I call that Tortilla Flat.

That and worse.

But I thought, you know, when I had dinner with you,

we had just come from Dusty's wedding.

And when we had you and Dodie and I-- my little girl--

and you said, I'm going to have-- the Lord's told me

I'm going to have a Christian network with lots of stations.

And then I went out there with you to do that program,

and I said to myself, this man is either

the greatest visionary I've ever met, or he's a crank.


There's still people in society who-- who aren't quite sure.

You're a great visionary.

Pat, personally, Ben and I vote for visionary.


(SINGING) Happy trails to you, until we meet again.

Happy trails to you, keep smiling until then.

Who cares about the clouds if we're together?
