    • Jethro: Why, if I was to walk into that palace in Monaco with that little old hayseed, why, Princess Grace and Prince Rainier would throw me out! Jed: Well, don't go to see Princess Grace and Prince Rainier. Jethro: Uncle Jed, ask me to give up polo, ask me to give up skiing in the Alps, but don't ask me to give up my friends!

    • (Jed is trying to tell Louellen that Jethro has run away because he doesn’t want to marry her) Jed: Louellen? Louellen: Yes, Mr. Clampett? Jed: Did you have a nice trip out here from Louisiana? Louellen: Just wonderful. Jed: Did ya hear that Granny? She had a wonderful trip out from Louisiana. Granny: Get to the point Jed. Jed: Louellen? Louellen: Yes Mr. Clampett? Jed: You sure did turn out purty. Louellen: Thank you sir. Granny: Jed! Jed: Alright Granny. Alright, I’m comin’ to it. Louellen? Louellen: Yes, Mr. Clampett? Jed: Do you recollect the day Jethro put that ring on your finger? Louellen: Yes I do. Jed: You recollect him kissing you? Louellen: I do. Jed: You recollect him askin’ you to wait fer him? Louellen: I do. Jed: You recollect him sayin’ that uh, one day you would share everything. Louellen: I do. Jed: Darlin’ I wish you’d stop sayin’ “I do.” You’re makin’ me awful nervous.

    • Louellen: Has something happened to Jethro? Granny: Oh no! He’s the same as ever. Of course, in a way, I guess that’s bad news right there.

    • (Drysdale tells Jed and Louellen she could win an Academy Award) Drysdale: I know what you’re capable of Louellen. And mark my words, one of these nights, you’ll be taking that famous fellow Oscar home with you. Jed: Mr. Drysdale, I’ve known Louellen all her life, and she ain’t that kind of girl.

    • Jethro: I was crazy about her too. First time I ever really fell in love. Jed: With Louellen? Jethro: No, with her cupcakes.

    Trivia (2)

    • What happened to Jed's movie studio? When Louellen mentions getting to a movie studio, Jed says he'll take her to Mr. Drysdale. What happened to Mammoth Pictures? Jed could have taken her for a screen test at his studio and ensure she gets a good role.

    • Sadly, we see an even darker side of Mr. Drysdale and his rudeness when he berates Louellen and calls her names, making her cry. Had Jed caught the conversation when Mr. Drysdale called her those names, Jed would have probably taken his money out of Mr. Drysdale's bank and probably ruined a friendship in the process and could have been an instant notion for Jed and the family to get away from this man. If the Clampetts did not have their money, would Drysdale even care about them?
