      • Mr. Rockhead: Fred, you no doubt have read about the big masquerade ball.
        Fred: Yes, Mr. Rockhead.
        Mr. Rockhead: Now, Fred, I don't want you to feel you're being pressured--
        Fred: Oh, I understand, Mr. Rockhead. How much are the tickets?
        Mr. Rockhead: If you don't want one, just say so.
        Fred: Well, that's a fair deal. How much are they?
        Mr. Rockhead: The tickets are, uh, 25 each. I'll put you down for one.
        Fred: 25? Are you kidding? How many you got left?
        Mr. Rockhead: 4.
        Fred: I'll take them all. Wilma would like to go to a masquerade ball, and I'll invite a couple of friends.
        Mr. Rockhead: Now you're not doing this just because you need your job and I was thinking of replacing a few men around here, are you?
        Fred: Oh, ho ho, not at all, Mr. Rockhead. I was just telling my pal Barney that we ought to get out and mingle a little more.
        Mr. Rockhead: Well, fine, fine. And don't worry about the money. You won't have to pay for them all at once.
        Fred: Why not? 4 tickets at 25 each-- here's your buck.
        Mr. Rockhead: Good. I'll accept this as a down payment, and I'll deduct a little each week until the balance of 99 is paid up. It shouldn't take more than a year or two.
        Fred: 25 bucks apiece? Ohh...
        (Fred faints)
        Mr. Rockhead: Flintstone? Flintstone, you better get up or--or I'll dock you for laying down on the job.

      • Wilma: Stop groaning, Fred. It's over and done with, and we'll make the best of it.
        Fred: What are you doing with those bones?
        Wilma: Oh, you're right, Fred. I should save them for Dino.
        Fred: Dino? With these tickets to pay for, those bones are gonna be our dinner tomorrow.

      • Mr. Rockhead: Well, Fred, did you have a nice time at the ball last night?
        Fred: Sensational. My only regret is that I didn't recognize you, or I would have stopped to pay my respects.
        Mr. Rockhead: You didn't recognize me?
        Fred: Nope.
        Mr. Rockhead: I recognized you.
        Fred: You didn't.
        Mr. Rockhead: Yes, I did.
        Fred: How about that? Boss, you sure have a keen eye.
        Mr. Rockhead: You were wearing a dinosaur costume.
        Fred: That's right. You've got to be kidding. I feel pretty silly, you knowing me and me not knowing you.
        Mr. Rockhead: Yes, you certainly were silly.
        (Fred and Mr. Rockhead laughs)
        Fred: Tell me, Boss. I'm on pins and needles. What were you wearing?
        (Mr. Rockhead puts on the bird mask)
        Mr. Rockhead: I've got it right here.
        Fred: Sure, I talked to you. We were standing at the refreshment bar and I was saying--(realizes) Oh, boy, what I was saying.
        Mr. Rockhead: I'll refresh your memory. Quote--Vice president of the moron section of the Knucklehead Club.
        (Fred shrinks)
        Mr. Rockhead: Home having dinner before the 5:00 whistle.
        (Fred shrinks again)
        Mr. Rockhead: Penny pincher.
        (Fred shrinks again)
        Mr. Rockhead: Shorty.
        (Fred shrinks again)
        Mr. Rockhead: Birdbrain.
        (Fred shrinks again)
        Mr. Rockhead: You were going to bump me right on the beak.
        (Fred shrinks again)
        Mr. Rockhead: Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.
        (Fred shrinks three more times)
        Mr. Rockhead: Well, what have you got to say for yourself?
        Fred: (in a high-pitched voice) Oh, boy. Me and my big mouth.
