While not as comprehensive as R in its statistical coverage, SciPy probably 
has enough in it for what the OP wants (which sounded fairly basic). Quick 
linear (in the parameters) fits are easily done with scipy, plotting, simple 
smoothing (if he wants to), etc. I know R is industrial-strength statistics, 
but it sounds like more than what the OP needed.
