    • (Fred is trying to guess what's troubling Wilma)
      Fred: It's not your birthday? It's not my birthday? I don't see anything from your mother, so it's not our anniversary.
      Wilma: Don't remind me--throwing out that beautiful plant she sent last year.
      Fred: It was poison ivy, and I won't take that from anyone!

    • Fred: If I don't take Wilma to the movies tonight, she's going home to live with her mother.
      Barney: (while weightlifting) Well--6, 7, 8--that's one way to keep her mother--10, 11, 12--from coming to live with you.
      Fred: Barney, are you going to help me or not?
      Barney: Uh, sure, Fred, sure. Now tell me your problem.
      Fred: I already told you!
      Barney: Yes, sir, it's just like Rock Whammy says. "A fat man is a grouchy man."

    • (Fred berates Wilma for taking a newspaper quiz that claims he's a "beast" to her...)
      Fred: You mean to tell me you take that stuff seriously?
      Wilma: (somewhat hurt) There must be something to it, if you could forget what tonight is...
      Fred: (exploding) Tonight is the night you're gonna nag me to death, that's what's tonight is!
      (Wilma starts crying again)
