    • (Lamont has just sent Roger out to play after catching Fred telling him a wild story about Fred winning medals in World War II) Lamont: What was that? Fred: Huh? Lamont: What was that you were saying? Fred: I was just telling Roger a little story so he wouldn't think these medals are worthless. Lamont: I'll say you were. Cyanide capsules, truth serums, German fighters...I'm surprised Roger wasn't hurt. Fred: Hurt? Lamont: Hit by flying bull!

    • Fred (to General): You want to live with the master race? Move to Watts!
