      • Jane: Mr. Clampett, how would you like for a member of your family to become Princess of Palm Springs?
        Jed: What?
        Jane: They're holding a beauty contest at the Springs this week, and someone in this very room has the face and the figure to win. When the judges see her in a bathing suit . . .
        Granny: I told you I ain't puttin' on no bathing suit!

      • Drysdale: You know, I like the Clampetts, but I love my wife. Isn't life weird? She's a snob, she's a hypochondriac, she's not young and beautiful, but I love her. You know, I do need my psychiatrist.

      • (Granny and Jed don't approve of Elly May's bathing suit)

        Jed: Me neither!

      • (Jed is wondering about the dress Elly May is wearing, which he thinks shows too much skin)
        Jed: What in the world kind of a dress is that?
        Elly: Well, Miss Hathaway says it's a Californy sun dress.
        Jed: I wouldn't let no son of mine wear it. Or daughter neither.
