      • (Jethro is describing his plan of launching himself into space, while Jane thinks he means this will be his plan as a folk singer)
        Jethro: Are you gonna help me get some of that glory?
        Jane: Frankly, it depends on how well you can sing.
        Jethro: Sing?!
        Jane: And hopefully accompany yourself on the guitar.
        Jethro: I'm gonna have a hard enough time just eatin' lunch.
        Jane: What?!
        Jethro: Didn't Uncle Jed tell ya, I'm gonna be wearin' these here wings when I get up there, flappin' and swoopin' around.
        Jane: Jethro, you don't need a gimmick like this.
        Jethro: Well, I'm gonna need somethin' when these sky rockets burn out!
        Jane: You plan to fire rockets?!
        Jethro: Well yeah, just to get me started. Then I spread these here wings.
        Jane: Jethro, dear boy, these are just cheap attention getters. If you have talent you don't need them.
        Jethro: I don't?
        Jane: Not at all. It may take you a little longer to reach the top, but when you hit you'll be a much bigger smash.

      • (Kingsley is explaining the type of folk music that is popular)
        Kingsley: Listen, the number one record today is a guy playing an electrified garden rake, while his wife sings with her head in a rain barrel.

      • (Jed tells Jane that Jethro is planning to go to space, and she realizes she'll have to give up the folk singer look and go back to work at the bank)
        Jed: Miss Jane, ain't ya gonna stop him?
        Miss Jane: Stop him? I'm going to light his fuse!

      • (Jethro is playing, and being electrocuted by his Bodine-o'phone, which impresses Kingsley, who thinks it is all part of the act)
        Jethro: Ooh, ooh, turn me off! Ooh, ooh, pull me lose. Ooh, cut the juice!
        Kingsley: He's even got a hit song!

      • (Matthews leaves after seeing Bessie the chimp at Miss Jane's desk)
        Harvey Matthews: I'm going to start doing business with John Cushing. At least he hires high school kids.

      • Miss Jane: I can't believe that Jethro would actually rocket himself into the air and expect to fly.
        Jed: It's all he can think about anymore. Ain't nothin' in his head but space.
        Granny You can say that agin.
        Jed: Well, I didn't mean for it to come out the way it did. What I meant was the boy . . . I believe I'll let it stand.
