Elly May: I reckon why the got two sets of steps.
Jethro: That's easy! One's for going up, and the other's for going down!
Elly May: Oh.

Aunt Pearl: You folks oughta move yourselves to a place like... Beverly Hills, Californy.
Jethro: They got swimming pools and movie stars!

[on the subject of California]
Elly May: I hear they got smog.
Daisy Mae "Granny" Moses: What's a smog?
Jethro: I reckon it's a small hog.

Jed Clampett: I reckon you done what you done because you didn't know we was who we was. And if we hadn't been who we was, we'd have still been much obliged for you to have done what you done.

Daisy Mae "Granny" Moses: Elly May! Don't spit from a moving vehicle. Wait till it's stopped.

Woodrow Tyler: She's got crap on her boots!

Elly May: I just wanna be who I am. And I ain't goin' to no France!

Elly May: Look! They's a-playin' 'Kick the Can'!

[trying to figure out the game of Bowling]
Jethro: I think I got this game figured out. You throw the ball down this gully. Then you throw yourself down the other guy, and try to hit them snake-hittin' clubs before the ball does.

Millburne Drysdale: I'm president of a bank.
Jethro: Wow, can I be president of a bank too?
Jed Clampett: Jethro, that was a mighty disrespectful thing to say to Mr. Drysdale. Ask if you can be vice president.

[Jethro and Cousin Pearl are driving in the truck to Jed's place]
Cousin Pearl: Jethro, did you take care of those old brakes like I told you to?
Jethro: Yes, Ma, I pulled them off the truck yesterday. The new brakes should be coming in the mail next week.

[the Clampetts were flipped off by an irate motorist]
Jed Clampett: Now why you suppose he's doing that?
Jethro: I reckon that's how people wave hello to in Beverly Hills.
