  • Quotes

    • Fred: You know, honey, I was just thinking, we've been married now 10 years.
      Wilma: Not quite. 9 1/2.
      Fred: Well, closer to 10 than 9.

    • Fred:'s funny, Wilma and I were just talking about how time flies.
      Wilbur: Really?
      Fred: Yep. We've been married now 10 happy years.
      Wilbur: 9 1/2. I remember the wedding invitation.
      Fred: Well, closer to 10 than 9. By the way, uh, you married?
      Wilbur: No.
      Fred: Must be awful dull for a bachelor to take out a married woman.
      Wilbur: Matter of fact, I find them far more interesting.

    • Wilma: (to Wilbur) I haven't seen you since Fred and I were married. How long has it been?
      Fred: 10 happy years.
      Wilbur: 9 1/2.

    • (While driving to the bowling alley)
      Barney: Got to hand it to you, Fred, you old mastermind, you.
      Fred: Don't remind me.
      Barney: But you really outdid yourself tonight.
      (Gazoo appears)
      Gazoo: Don't remind him. That's just what he's afraid of.

    • Fred: You were right, Barn. My mind is on Wilma and that Wilbur character.
      Barney: Well, I wouldn't worry, Fred. After all, you and Wilma have been married 9 1/2 years.
      Fred: Closer to 10.
      Barney: Yeah, yeah, closer to 10. She knows what you've done for her and what she can expect in the future. Knowing all this, what more can Wilbur possibly represent when she's dancing in his arms?
      Fred: Wilma! Don't leave me! I'm coming!

    • Gazoo: Need some help, dum-dums?
      Fred: Gazoo!
      Gazoo: In the--if you'll pardon the expression--spirit.
      Fred: Say, maybe we can get some use out of you after all. You see that big phony in there dancing with Wilma? The guy with the big smile?
      Gazoo: You mean that handsome brute?
      Barney: Yeah, yeah. That's him.
      Fred: Oh, shut up, Barney! I'll tell him.

    • (After disguising Barney as a woman)
      Gazoo: Voila. A beautiful...yuck! Well, you can't win them all.

    • Fred: Gazoo is a nut.
