    • TRIVIA (4)

      • The Pebbles in this episode is not Fred and Wilma's daughter who is born in season 3.

      • Fred's boss is JJ Granite, and he works at Granite Quarry & Cave Construction. Fred has worked at the company for 13 years. Mr. Granite looks exactly like Mr. Slate.

      • Wilma and Fred have been married for 13 years. That contradicts The Hot Piano episode, in which they celebrated their 10th anniversary. That episode aired in February 1961.

      • The children on the bus are Paul, Hope, Hilary and Jane Gabbustone, Bruce and Robert, Shirley Quartz, Alvin Carborundum, and Rosalie Gypsum.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Barney: Hiya, Fred. What's the good news?
        Fred: This marking the 13th anniversary of my association with the Granite Quarry and Gravel Company, Inc., you'd think the company would incorporate a little something extra in my pay envelope, like a raise. Right, Wilma?
        Wilma: Right.
        Fred: You'd think I could expect a little pat on the back. Right?
        Wilma: Right.
        Fred: Well, I got the pat on the back, all right--with a knife.
        Wilma: But I thought Mr. Granite was gonna offer you a new job.
        Fred: Oh, he did, he did--with a big fat cut in my paycheck.
        Wilma: Oh, Fred, no! So what did you say to Mr. Granite?
        Fred: I kept my temper. I didn't want to say anything I'd be sorry for. I took a long deep breath, counted to 10 slowly, and then, kind of casual-like, I said, "Granite, it's time we had a man-to-mouse talk. You're so cheap, you look over the top of your glasses to keep from wearing them out. You're so stingy that if your wife got hiccups, you'd rent her out to a glass blower. In brief, Mr. Granite, you are nothing but a short, bald, disagreeable old slave-driving sourpuss." (knocks Barney down)
        Barney: That's telling me, Fred.
        Wilma: You didn't say that.
        Fred: Are you kidding? I certainly did.
        Wilma: And what did he say to you?
        Fred: Nothing.
        Wilma: Nothing?
        Fred: Nope. When I was taking that first long deep breath and counting to 10 slowly, the little sneak left the office!

      • Fred: Hi, there, young feller. What's your name?
        Alvin: Alvin.
        Fred: Alvin what?
        Alvin: Alvin, thank you.
        Fred: No, no, I mean your other name. What does your mommy call your daddy?
        Alvin: She don't call him anything. She likes him.
        Fred: Well, what does the name say on your mailbox?
        Alvin: U.S. Mail.
        Fred: Say, isn't your father A.A. Carborundum?
        Alvin: Yeah. So what?
        Fred: Well, do you know who I am?
        Alvin: You mean you don't know that, either?
        Fred: Smart-aleck kid.

      • Fred: (while driving the school bus) Oh, boy. Barney, give me that speech again about being responsible for the future presidents and like that. Barney? (looks behind him and stops the bus) All right, Rubble, I see you sneaking out that window! Come back here, you coward, and finish this mission!
