    • Fred: Wha-wha-wha...Where is everybody? Barney: Everybody and everything left for Hollyrock half an hour ago. Fred: You mean I've been holding my breath for over half an hour? Barney: Yeah, and just don't hold your breath till you replace Gary Granite, either. Fred: Yeah, I know. I know something else, too. I've been a chump. A great big, fat, C-H-U-M-P...Dope.

    • Director: You are only great. And now, here's the ending of the picture which is also only great. By the way, did the writer write an ending? Prop Man: You're joking. Do you know what a writer costs? Director: Never mind. We'll ad-lib an ending.

    • Policeman: (sees Fred drive by in his monster suit) Oh, boy! I've got to stop eating in those cheap restaurants.

    • Barney: Hi, Betty. Your bird bit was great. Betty: Thanks, Barney, but you know it laid a big, fat speckled egg.

    • Barney: Hey Fred, what're you doing down here? Fred: Oh, boy. Eh...Um...I just came to see how many numbskulls would show up. Barney: (laughs) It looks like one more numbskull showed up than I expected.
