      • Will: Agility, like youth, is wasted on children..
        Dr. Smith: Agility, like youth, is wasted on children.

      • Dr. Smith: Well, it's of no earthly use to me.
        Maureen: Well, why does everything have to have an earthly use, Doctor?
        Don: Don't let him answer that or we'll be standing here hours listening to the miseries of a galactic castaway.
        Dr. Smith: Major, you irk me.

      • Dr. Smith: Is it very complicated, my encyclopedic friend?
        Robot: Very compact.
        Dr. Smith: Tell me more.
        Robot: Its design is simplicity itself.
        Dr. Smith: Getting better all the time. How simple?
        Robot: What do you want from me? Blood?

      • Dr. Smith: I believe the boy's unlocked the secrets of the universe. We have a latter-day Einstein in our midst.
        Will: I don't like obvious flattery, Dr. Smith. Next time try to be a little more subtle.

      • John: By the way, weren't you supposed to be working in the hydroponic garden?
        Dr. Smith: The hydroponic garden? Oh, yes, it completely slipped my mind. But I shall attend to it immediately after dinner.
        John: No you won't. There won't be any dinner until you get that job done.
        Dr. Smith: Indeed. I shall very likely starve.
        Don: "Man does not live by bread alone." Remember, Smith?
        Dr. Smith: Bah, Major.

      • Will: Your methods are very elementary.
        Judy: Oh, do you know any better ones?
        Will: Look, Will, I realize you're a brain now. But that doesn't mean you have to put everyone else down.
        Judy: Look, Will, I realize you're a brain now. But that doesn't mean you have to put everyone else down.
        Will: Your hypersensitivity is showing, Judy. Now, if we keep this up you'll probably stomp out of here in a corny feminine huff.
        Judy: Well, I've got news for you, Will Robinson. I'm going to do exactly that right now.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Don: Man does not live by bread alone.

        Don quotes from the Bible, Deuteronomy 8: 2-3. "And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live." Jesus later quotes the scripture in Matthew 4:4 and Luke 4:4 when he rebuffs Satan's temptation suggesting he turn stones into bread to relieve his hunger.
