    • Jason Fox: Haven't you brought those two young men who usually solve your cases?
      Fenton Hardy: I did bring them, and they occasionally allow me to solve one or two of my own!

    • Frank Hardy: This young lady's quite trustworthy.
      Nancy Drew: "Quite trustworthy"?! You'd make a great character witness!

    • Frank Hardy: (about Nancy) If she wasn't so exasperating.....
      Joe Hardy: You wouldn't like her so much!

    • (in a television studio lot)
      Joe Hardy: I always find these sets kinda eerie. They're disturbing. I mean, they're real rooms but there's no backing, there's no substance. Perfect homes for people who only exist in your imagination.
