  • Quotes

    • Jethro: Know what my teacher over at Potts' School said about totin' a rabbit's foot?
      Granny: What?
      Jethro: She said it's a "superstitious invocation contradicted by scientific knowledge."

      Jed: Hmm. Always nice to know you ain't been doin' something foolish.

    • (Jane is trying to teach Jethro French, teaching him how to pronounce "Mademoiselle," and Jed walks in on them pronouncing "Mah," which sounds like kissing)
