    • Barney: Get it? When Fred opens the door...Kaboink! The rock lands right on his noggin.
      Wilma: I suppose it has to be done, but is it necessary to use such a hard rock?
      Barney: Fredrick has a hard head, you know.

    • Frederick: How about reading Shelley's sonnets to you again?
      Wilma: I've heard Ode to a Lark so many times I could build a nest and lay eggs.

    • Betty: What's wrong with him, Wilma?
      Wilma: I...I don't know, but he'll snap out of it in a minute.
      Fred: Ah, there's my sweet, adorable wife looking charming as usual. How are you my dear?
      Wilma: See? He's all right, he knows me.
      Betty: Are you kidding?
      Fred: And there's Elizabeth, Bernard's wife, a vision of loveliness, a delight to the eye.
      Betty: (giggling) Oh yeah, he's all right. He knows me, too.

    • Betty: Why, he's a veterinarian.
      Wilma: I must've gotten the wrong list of doctors.
      Barney: Oh, I don't know, Fred eats like a horse.

    • Betty: What happened to Fred?
      Barney: Well, I know this sounds stupid, but Fred hit himself on the head with a bottle. He knocked himself cold.
      Betty: Oh, dear. I'd hate to tell that story to Wilma.
      Barney: What do you mean, Betty?
      Betty: Well, I mean...I mean, think how embarrassed Fred would feel if Wilma found out.
      Barney: Well...Uh...Maybe we can sneak him into his house and put him on his sofa and she'll think he's asleep.
      Betty: Sneak him into the house? Well, that's like sneaking an elephant into a telephone booth.

    • Wilma: Fred's a diamond in the rough, but even diamonds can stand polishing.

    • Betty: (after hearing a strange nasty sound) Some poor Mastodon is caught in the tar pit. They ought to put a fence around the tar pit.
      Barney: That's not a Mastodon. That's Fred singing.
      Betty: They ought to put the fence around him.

    • Fred: (angry) We are finished. I'm returning your lawn mower, your rake, your hedge shears and your hose.
      Barney: My power tools too?
      Fred: Yes, your power tools too.
      Barney: Gee, this is serious. You never returned my power tools before.

    • Fred: (angry) I'll give him a piece of my mind.
      Wilma: Not to big a piece, Fred. You haven't any to spare.
