  • Episode Description
  • A mix-up at the pharmacy gives Fred pills that turn him into an ape. Barney is the only one to see this short-lived effect, which makes him wonder about his own health.

    • Wilma: I don't understand it. Fred said he'd meet us here an hour ago. Betty: I'm sure there's nothing to worry about, Wilma. Barney: Yeah. I mean, what's the worst that could have happened? So he got bit by a saber-toothed tiger. Betty: Will you be quiet? Barney: Oh, oh, I'm sorry.

    • Wilma: Fred, are you all right? Fred: Yeah, thanks to Bamm-Bamm, but please, Wilma, from now on, if Pebbles wants to go to the zoo, you take her. Wilma: Anything you say, dear. Betty: How did you get in that cage in the first place? Barney: Yeah. Something like that can cause a lot of talk. What's the story? Fred: Beats me. All I can remember is waking up and thinking that ape was Wilma.

    • Fred: Huh? Huh? Huh?! Huh? Hey, Wilma! Wilma: (softly) What is it, Fred? You'll wake up Pebbles. Fred: It's Barney! He turned into an ape! Wilma: Oh, no, not again.
