  • Quotes

    • (After Slate finds out that Fred let his yacht drift away from the dock)
      Mr. Slate: Flintstone, ship-lifter! Not only are you fired, but I'm charging you with grand larceny, insubordination, mutiny and piracy!
      Barney: Don't worry, Fred. A good lawyer might get you off with life.

    • Fred: That darn Slate, speeding us up. Who does he think he is? And as for that flunky foreman of his, I have a good mind to--
      Foreman: Flintstone!
      Fred: Yes, Mr. Flunky-- I-I-I mean, yes, Mr. Foreman?

    • (After Fred saved everyone from the volcano)
      Slate: I'm dropping all those charges and rehiring you.
      Fred: Why...why, thank you, boss, and if there's anything else I can ever do--
      Slate: Well, as a matter of fact, there is!
      (Later, Fred is painting Slate's yacht)
      Barney: How's it going, Fred?
      Fred: Ohh, that ingrate, making me paint after I saved his life. (Slate sticks his head out of a nearby window, Fred accidentally paints his face) I have a good mind to--
      Slate: Flintstone! Ooh! Look at this! Red paint!
      Fred: I'm, uh...I'm sorry, sir. Would you prefer some other color?

    • Wilma: It's good to be home again, isn't it, Fred?
      Fred: Yeah, but I sorta miss that yacht. I guess I was meant for the sea.
      Wilma: That's exactly what Boss Slate said when he tried to throw you overboard.
