    • (Barney and Andy argue about whether Thelma Lou or Helen is right and who's being childish)
      Barney: So deep a friendship hath one man for another, that no female caress shall ever tear it asunder. Boy, the guy that wrote that must have been some kind of a nut!

    • (Barney is angry about something; Andy waits for him to explain)
      Barney: Well, you probably already guessed it anyway, so I might as well tell you. Thelma Lou and me we had a fight.
      Andy: Oh, well. You've had little battles before.
      Barney: Huh, huh. Not like this one, Andy. This was the grand-daddy of them all – the big bomb!
      Andy: Oh?
      Barney: Came right out of the blue. We were sittin' on her front porch and all of a sudden she claimed I never took her anyplace. Oh boy, I really steamed at that. What a ridiculous thing to say. We go to church every Sunday; Tuesday nights it's her place for television; Thursday nights it's the diner for the special; and Friday nights – when I'm on duty – she's here for coffee. She just as much as said I was cheap!
      Andy: Well, they are kinda low budget evenin's.
      Barney: You know it's not the money, Andy.
