        Armstrong: You, you actually Heard Jethro's voice?
        Elly: Well, he called me and I heard him.
        Granny: I always believed he'd come back here.
        Elly: He said it was awful lonesome up there.
        Armstrong: Lonesome? Up there among the stars?
        Elly: Well, he said there wasn't nobody from Hollywood there at all!

      • Armstrong: Did you, uh, did you do this Mr. Clampett?
        Jed: Yeah, I whittled that.
        Armstrong: Psychotherapy.
        Jed: No, that's Jim Owens. I don't believe we know any Therapy, do we Granny?
        Granny: I don't recollect any. What does he do?
        Armstrong: Oh, well, you see therapy helps people get over shock or tragedy or nervousness.
        Jed: Sounds like a nice fella.

      • Jane: Chief, why did you have to tell him that Jethro jumped out the window?!
        Drysdale: Wishful thinking I guess.

      • Jethro: You let me turn this place back into my world wide talent agency, and I'll put cha in movies.
        Jed: What do you think Granny?
        Granny: Nah Jed. It's tempting, but the world needs a good doctor more than it does another sex symbol.

      • Granny: You could learn some mighty useful trades, like hair cuttin', teeth pullin', doctorin'.
        Jed: Wood carvin', harness mendin', shoe cobblin'.
        Jethro: Y'all just don't understand, do you? I just can't go from being Hollywood's number one agent to cobbling shoes. I'd rather jump out the window!
        Jed: Well, if ya feel that strong about it.

      • Armstrong: I've got to see Mr. Drysdale.
        Granny: Well, tell him he can start sendin' in the B's.
        Armstrong: Oh, you have hives?
        Jed: Only durin' the strawberry season.

      • (Armstrong is asking the Clampetts about Jethro, who he thinks jumped out the window, not knowing he's still alive)
        Armstrong: I imagine Jethro's leaving was quite a loss to you.
        Granny: Well, we wanted him to stay here and give up the agent business, and learn another trade.
        Jed: But the boy was too proud. He said if he couldn't be Hollywood's number one agent he'd rather jump out the window.
        Armstrong: "Pride goeth before a fall." Oh, I'm sorry, that just slipped out.

      • (Julie Andrews tells Jethro he is leaving his talent agency)
        Jethro: That guy's crazy. If he'd a stuck with me, I'd a made the name "Julie Andrews" famous.

      • (Jane tells Drysdale that it is his love of money that caused the problem with the Clampetts on the fifth floor)
        Jane: You're greedy, graspy, canorious, aberitous, and that's why you're in trouble.
        Drysdale: Yes. Like they say, "Nice guys finish last."
