    • Fred: We wouldn't be in the army if it wasn't for you two.
      Wilma: What? Do you mean to tell me I told you to join the army?
      Fred: You told me to go to 75 Main Street and take a physical and 75 Main Street is the Army Recruiting Office and they give physicals there.
      Wilma: (to Betty) Didn't you tell me 75?
      Betty: Maybe it was 57?
      Barney: All I know is it's Fred's fault.
      Fred: What do you mean my fault? It's Wilma's fault!
      Wilma: It's Betty's fault!
      Betty: (turns around) It's your fault!
      (Betty notices she's looking in a mirror)
      Betty: Wait a minute. Let's do that over again and I'll start it this time.

    • (After Fred and Barney reluctantly leave to report for Army duty)
      Wilma: How do they always manage to bollix things up, Betty?
      Betty: I don't know, Wilma...practice, I guess!
