    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the first appearance of a regular feature, Hee Haw salutes various small towns, or towns in the south. In this episode, Hee Haw salutes Yazoo City MS, population 11236, and Muleshoe TX, population 3871.

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Roy: Do you know it takes my wife 40 minutes to get her lipstick on.
        Grandpa: 40 minutes, why?
        Roy: Cause she's got a big mouth, that's why.

      • Gordie: Pardon me Lulu, but I'm the census-taker. Would you tell me how old you are?
        Lulu: Did the Hills sisters tell you how old they were?
        Gordie: No they didn't.
        Lulu: Well, I'm the same age they are.
        Gordie: Huh, okay, I'll just put down Lulu's as old as the Hills.

      • (During the "Pfft, You Was Gone" song, Archie sings the following):
        No one ever said that you was a beauty.
        Your figure was like a flat-river boat.
        How well I recall the first time I kissed you,
        the hair on your chin, it tickled my throat.

      • (At the joke fence)
        Archie: Hey, I crossed a parrott with a pound of coffee.
        Crowd: What'd ya get?
        Archie: I don't know, but it keeps me up all night talking.

      • Diana: That settles it, I'm going.
        Roy: Where you going?
        Diana: Home to mother.
        Roy: Well then, wait for me. I'd like to have a good meal for a change.

      • (in Archie's Barbershop)
        Roy: How's your wife?
        Archie: How's my wife? Well, better than nothin. She went to the beauty shop on Saturday, to make herself more beautiful, you know? Put that mud pack on her face.
        Roy: Oh, did it help her looks?
        Archie: Yeah, it did. And then that mud fell off.

      • (during the "Hee Haw Players" sketch, Lulu and Junior are acting out Romeo and Juliet)
        Lulu: Oh Romeo, Romeo, where forth art though Romeo?
        Junior: Any fool can see I'm right here at the bottom of this stupid ladder.

      • (During the "Pfft, You Was Gone" song, Archie sings the following):
        While you kept that stinkin' old goat in our bedroom.
        "I can't stand the smell", I'd yell and I'd shout.
        "Then open the wind'r" is all you would answer,
        but I knew my chickens would all fly out.

      • Samuel B. Sternwheeler (Gordie): The hardest job a small child faces today is learning good manners...without seeing any!

      • Archie: Hey Grandpa, I understand your nephew drowned in a barrel of varnish. You know, that must have been an awful way to go.
        Grandpa: No, he had a beautiful finish.

      • (During Pickin' and Grinnin')
        Buck: Do you realize that every time I exhale my breath, some poor soul passes on to the great beyond?
        Roy: Sorta gettin' to me too. Have you ever thought about using a breath sweetener?

      • Roy: We'll be back next week with the worlds biggest elephant.
        Buck: We will?
        Roy: Well, if we don't, I'm stuck with 85,000 pounds of peanuts!
