When Miss Jane is trying to get out of the sleeping bag and her zipper is stuck, Granny says that she will cut her out. So Granny cuts out the bottom. But if the zipper was stuck, couldn't she just slide it off? And if she couldn't, why did they cut off the bottom? If she can't get it off by sliding it off, how could she get it off by lifting it over her head?
(Elly is heating the Swamp Surprise, and Phinney, who has been told it is repellent, is questioning it)
Phinney: What's in that stuff?
Elly: It's a secret.
Phinney: C'mon, you can tell me.
Elly: Well, it's screech owl, alligators and water mousins, crawdads and toads.
Phinney: I asked what's in it; not what it kills.
Drysdale: I don't know about you two, but I thought that last dish was lousy.
Jethro: It's rousy! Rousy! See, I told ya he wasn't Japanese.
(Miko is saying how they came to decide to join the women's lib movement)
Miko: But Granny-san here persuaded us.
Miko: She threatened to make us eat Swamp Surprise.
Jane: (to Betty) Actually, it was an offer, but they took it as a threat.
(Jed is getting spoiled during the Japanese tea ceremony)
Jed: Beats me how them Japanese men ever get out of the house long enough to build all them cars and cameras.
Jethro: Who are you?
Phinney: I'm the landlord.
Jethro: Hey, it's the randrord.
Jed: I feel downright guilty. I oughtta be out doing my chores.
Miko: You want us to stop so you can go do your chores?
Jed: No, I don't feel that guilty.
Jed: These Japanese folks set a great store by politeness, and that's something we can all learn from.
