    • Jane: You're not having trouble with Rex Saturn, are you dear? Judy: I could care less with Rex whats-his-name and his who-needs-it career. If he prefers a bunch of groupies to me, "Let him go", I say! Di-Di: Oh yeah? That isn't what you said to me! Judy: Di-Di! Jane: I thought diaries weren't supposed to be seen, or heard. George: Do you think other families have all these problems? Jane: Since the beginning of time. (Cue scene change to prehistoric Bedrock)

    • Barney: Hi, Fred. Hi, Wilma. Gee, am I late for the costume party? Fred: No, but we're gonna be late for work. Wilma: Fred, haven't you noticed anything? (She and Betty show off their outfits in hope their husbands will take them on vacation to Honolurock) Fred: Yeah, those grass skirts. You back up to the stove, you could start a fire. See you later, girls. (Leaves with Barney) Betty: You think they got our message? Wilma: Personally, I think it came back "Nobody home".

    • Elroy: It works, Dad! You won't believe it, but it works! George: Uh-huh. (Gasps) What is it? Elroy: It's my time travel machine! George: You're right. I don't believe it works. Elroy: Then how do you explain this? (Opens his closet door and reveals a woman from the past) George: I don't have to explain it, you have to explain it! A young boy like you hiding a girl in the closet!

    • Fred: Let's go girls! You were right, we're going home! Barney: Last one in the car is a rotten dinosaur egg! Wilma: We were just starting to enjoy ourselves. Fred: Well you can enjoy yourselves a lot more alive than you can dead. Wilma: Are you out of your mind? What are you talking about? Fred: (Nervously) B-b-b-back there! Duh-duh-duh-duh... Betty: Would you like to give it a try, Barney? Barney: (Also scared) Uh, yeah, uh, uh. Duh-duh-duh-duh... Wilma: Well Betty, we know one thing. There's duh-duh-duh-duh over there.

    • Fred: Yabba Dabba, friend. (Moments later) George: Ooba Dooba, friend! (Afterward) Betty: I wonder if they know any other words? Wilma: I bet they understand this. (Calls out) I love your dress! Jane: Well, thank you! You must tell me who does your hair! Fred: Wilma, you did it! Wilma: No big thing, Fred. I just used the universal language.
