Al Lewis: You know what you are? You're a 73-year-old putz.

Willy Clark: Come in... and *enter*!

Al Lewis: Because it's different. Do you know why we did this sketch for 43 years, Willy? Because it's good.
Willy Clark: And do you know why we're not doing it anymore? Because we've been doing it for 43 years.
Al Lewis: If we're not doing it anymore, why are we changing it?
Willy Clark: You know what's wrong with you, Lewis? You've been sitting on a New Jersey porch for too long. You're out of touch. From my window here

Willy Clark: I see everything that's going on in the world. Look! I see old people, I see young people, nice people, bad people. I see hold-ups! I see drug addicts! Ambulances! Car crashes! Jumpers from buildings! I see everything! You see... a lawn mower... and the milkman.
Al Lewis: That's why you want to say "enter" instead of "come in?"

Willy Clark: The finger! The finger!
