    • QUOTES (4)

      • Fred: (locals complain about being hungry because Drucker's store is always closed) Instead of having all this talkin', let's get some action. Haney, go see if the tar is boiling yet.
        Haney: Yes, sir.
        Oliver: What tar?
        Ralph: (grabs Oliver by the shoulders and stars feeling) Will you hold still?
        Oliver: What are you doing?
        Ralph: Measuring you. I'd say about five pounds of feathers ought to cover him.

      • Drucker: (tries to talk Oliver out of sending another hotheaded complaint letter, this one to the U.S. Post Office) Remember the last time you wrote a complaining letter?
        Oliver: To whom?
        Drucker: Take your pick. They were all disasters.
        Oliver: Oh, that's not--
        Drucker: It was two weeks to get our lights back on when you wrote to the electric company.
        Oliver: Well, that was--
        Drucker: We didn't get any water for a month after you wrote to the water company.
        Oliver: Yeah, well--
        Drucker: And there was the school bus fiasco, the condemned bridge fiasco.. Well, uh, u name it, and it was a fiasco!

      • Lisa: (to Oliver, when the neighbors threaten to tar and feather him) Well, it's your own fault. Everytime you write a letter, it's another fiesta.

      • Drucker: (announcing the new record for oldest mail he's found) Fred, will you read the postmark on this letter addressed to you?
        Fred: (reads envelope) August the 12th, 1917.
        : That's over 50 years ago!
        : Yeah, I found it behind a case of eight-button spats, which will go on sale immediately following this ceremony.
        : (reading his letter) Doggone!
        Lisa: What is it Mr. Ziffel?
        Fred: I've been drafted!
