    • Barney: What's all the rush to get home, Fred?
      Fred: Well, Wilma's gonna be a mother soon. It's my duty as the daddy to be home with her as much as possible.
      (Barney stares at him in surprise)
      Fred: What are you starin' at me for?
      Barney: Well, Fred, I, uh, I was just tryin' to picture you as a daddy, but it's no use. You're just not the type.
      (he laughs)
      Fred: Whattaya mean I'm not the type?!
      Barney: Well, uh, gee, Fred, uh, no offense, but fathers are supposed to be kind, considerate, thoughtful, and you strike out on all 3, Freddy-boy.
      (Fred angrily stops the car)
      Barney: Whatcha stop here for, Fred?!
      Fred: Get outta this car!
      Barney: You're kiddin', Fred.
      Fred: OUT! OUT!! OUT!!!
      Barney: See? That's just what I mean, Fred. You're not kind, considerate, thoughtful, you're just not the daddy type. I'll tell ya what I'll do, Fred. I'll help ya. You can practice being nice on me.
      Fred: Uh, yeah. Yeah. Oh, okay, Barney. I'm sorry. I'll be kind, considerate, and thoughtful of you.
      (a police officer walks up to them)
      Officer: Now, if you 2 have patched up your little spat, would ya please move on?
      (there's loads of traffic behind Fred and Barney)
      Officer: YOU'RE BLOCKING TRAFFIC!!!!
      Fred: Uh, y-yes, sir! Officer, sir! Yes, sir!
      (he and Barney skid away)
