  • Quotes

    • Uncle Joe: Floyd, you sign next.
      Floyd: Oh no, I ain't gonna sign nothin'.
      Charley: You better, you'll be shoveling perch into that boiler.
      Uncle Joe: Floyd, don't be a Benedict Arnold. Put down your John Hancock.
      Floyd: Can't I sign just plain old Floyd Smoot?

    • (after hearing about Homer Bedloe's plan to flood the valley and make a lake)
      Kate: You know Homer Bedloe, you've done some pretty contemptable things in your life, but this is the lowest you've ever sunk.
      Homer Bedloe: Thank you Mrs. Bradley, but not as low as this hotel will sink. Oh, by the way, you'll have plenty of guests. Catfish will be checking in, pickerel will be checking out. And you won't have as much work to do in the rooms, Mrs. Bradley. Oyster beds don't require a change of sheets.
      Uncle Joe: Mr. Bedloe, without a doubt, you're the most rotten, mean, miserable, despicable rat in the world.
      Homer Bedloe: Oh, I wish you'd write that down and send it to my mother. She'd be so proud.
