    • (Fred is trying to guess what's troubling Wilma) Fred: It's not your birthday? It's not my birthday? I don't see anything from your mother, so it's not our anniversary. Wilma: Don't remind me--throwing out that beautiful plant she sent last year. Fred: It was poison ivy, and I won't take that from anyone!

    • Fred: If I don't take Wilma to the movies tonight, she's going home to live with her mother. Barney: (while weightlifting) Well--6, 7, 8--that's one way to keep her mother--10, 11, 12--from coming to live with you. Fred: Barney, are you going to help me or not? Barney: Uh, sure, Fred, sure. Now tell me your problem. Fred: I already told you! Barney: Yes, sir, it's just like Rock Whammy says. "A fat man is a grouchy man." Fred: WHO'S GROUCHY?! I'M PERFECTLY CALM!

    • (Fred berates Wilma for taking a newspaper quiz that claims he's a "beast" to her...) Fred: You mean to tell me you take that stuff seriously? Wilma: (somewhat hurt) There must be something to it, if you could forget what tonight is... Fred: (exploding) Tonight is the night you're gonna nag me to death, that's what's tonight is! (Wilma starts crying again)
