    • Barney: Uh, say, Fred, ain't it time for the big fight? Fred: Hey, hey! I'm glad you remembered! You fix the chairs. I'll get the soda and the popcorn. Wilma: I didn't know there was a fight scheduled. Barney: Are you kidding? Tonight's for the Championship. Oh, it should be a real grudge bout. Betty: Heavyweight or lightweight? Barney: Both. A heavyweight versus a lightweight. Wilma: Why are you putting the chairs over there by the window? The TV set is here. Fred: This is not on TV. It's a closed circuit. Betty: But who's fighting? Barney: The new neighbors--Mrs. and Mr. Brickrock. Wilma: Fred, you don't intend to eavespeep. Fred: Ho ho ho! I wouldn't miss tonight's bout for anything. Those two have been putting on the greatest fight of the century. Last night's bout was a doozy--did you ever hear such hysterics? All that screaming and shrieking in that high voice. Barney: Yeah, I thought he'd never stop. Betty: Oh, that's terrible. You mean, that meek little man hits his wife? Fred: No. In the last 3 bouts, he didn't even lay a glove on her. He's strictly a defensive fighter. Barney: You'd think she'd let him win once in a while just to keep up his interest.

    • Wilma: (to Alvin Brickrock) Do you know the Rubbles? Barney: Uh, we've never met, but I've admired your footwork many, many times. Betty: Uh, uh we--we've been trying to drop in on your wife. Now it looks like we'll just have to meet her to say good-bye. Alvin Brickrock: I'm afraid that won't be possible. I had to send Agatha off ahead of me. She didn't like the idea of leaving. She fights moving. Barney: I'll say.

    • (After reading about Albert Bonehart) Fred: Good evening?! Wilma: What? Fred: Good evening! Good evening! Wilma: I said good night, Fred. Fred: I mean Alvin Brickrock. Wilma: He said good night, too. Fred: B-but--ooh--h-he borrowed my shovel! Wilma: Really, Fred. He's only had the shovel 45 minutes. You're not gonna start nagging him already.

    • Fred: Hey Barney, read that on the trunk! What does it say? Barney: This end up? Fred: Not that, the initials! Barney: A.B., Alvin Brickrock! Fred: Or Albert Bonehart. Barney: Alias Bluebeard! Fred: Or Agatha Brickrock!
