    • Wilma: Why didn't you graduate with your class? Fred: Well, I was out standing in the hall when they were graduating. I got musclebound from football. Now look at me-- outsmarted by a 10-year-old boy. Wilma: Arnold's only eight. Fred: He couldn't get that sneaky in eight years.

    • (About Fred going to school) Betty: Aren't you jealous of all those young coeds he'll be sitting next to? Wilma: No. Fred will be too busy studying figures, et cetera. Betty: Hmm. That's what he'll be studying, all right. And those et ceteras look great in sweaters. Wilma: (laughs) Fred? Interested in some skinny young thing in a sweater? (laughs again) Uh... on the other hand, that's how I got him.

    • Barney: Hey, dig those students from Shale! Look at those shoulders, them legs! Betty: Where? Where? All I see are the girl cheerleaders. Barney: That's what I'm talking about!

    • Slate: Good boy, Flintstone. I told you I appreciate a man with spunk. You're in line for a bigger job worthy of your talents. Wilma: Fred, did you hear that? Fred: A promotion? You mean I'm finally getting out of the hole? Slate: No, no. No. You can keep your regular job. After 12 years, you're finally getting the hang of it.
