    • (Fred just rushed outside to receive the mail) Betty: What's with Fred? He's so excited. Wilma: Oh, it's the notice from his boss, he hopes, about the annual raise in salary. Betty: Oh, well, what's the big fuss then? Fred gets his raise every year. Wilma: All the other employees have already received their notices in the mail. Betty: I see. Well, suppose Fred doesn't get that raise this year. Would it upset him? Fred: NO! IT CAN'T BE! Wilma: That answer your question?

    • Wilma: Fred, Betty and I are going shopping. If you don't mind-- Fred: Mind? Why should I mind if you spend a couple of bucks? I'm not busted exactly. We got everything, give or take a few payments. Wilma: You didn't let me finish. If you don't mind helping yourself to lunch. The icebox is full. Fred: You're darn right it's full. I don't need old Slate's raise. But why did he single me out for no raise this year? Why? Wilma: Fred, maybe... Fred: Yeah? Yeah? Wilma: Maybe you lost your temper with Mr. Slate at some time. Fred: ME?! I NEVER LOSE MY TEMPER! NEVER! (runs over to Betty) YOU EVER CATCH ME LOSING MY TEMPER?! Betty: You? Heh. Heh. Ridiculous. Fred: There.

    • Barney: Fred. Fred: There you go again! Barney: Again? All I said was "Fred." Fred: Well, that's the trouble with you! You're always sneaking up behind me and yelling, "Fred!" I'm sick of it! Sick! Sick! Sick! Barney: Why? Why? Why? I think Fred's a nice name.
