"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: The Uranium Caper (#5.34)" (1955)
Blanche Morton: When I think of my husband going out with Mr. Von Zell, prospecting for uranium, I can't believe it!
Gracie Allen: Well, you ought to believe it by now. They've been gone for over two days.

Blanche Morton: [Harry Morton and Harry Von Zell are prospecting for uranium] You know, when he told me he was going to camp out in the desert with Mr. Von Zell, I told him he was crazy!
Gracie Allen: Well, Harry Von Zell is a little peculiar, but you shouldn't say that about him... Although he says the same thing about your husband.
Blanche Morton: Oh no, no, no, honey, I meant MY Harry was the one who was crazy.
Gracie Allen: Oh. Well, if you and Harry Von Zell both think so, then it must be true.

Gracie Allen: He's pulled things like this before. For instance, take my birthday - signing a check and telling me to buy anything I want! Naturally, I had to tear it up!
Blanche Morton: Why?
Gracie Allen: Why? Well, he signed the check but he didn't fill in the amount, that's why.

Blanche Morton: [to George] Why you ought to be ashamed of yourself, taking advantage of your neighbors and your friends! Why that's downright dishonest.
Gracie Allen: Now wait a minute, Blanche. You can't come over here and say a thing like that to George! How would you like it if I came over to your house and said things like that about my husband?
George Burns: Thank you, dear.


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Gracie Gets a Business Manager (#4.6)" (1953)
Harry Morton: I bet if Gracie were married to a man like me, she wouldn't do anything silly.
Blanche Morton: Well honey, after she married you, nothing she did would seem silly!

Blanche Morton: I just remembered, I have a cake burning in the oven.
[Blanche runs home]
Gracie Allen: Well, what's she so excited about? That's where I burn mine too.

Blanche Morton: Harry, you remember I told you that a man cut our grass this morning? Well, he's over at Gracie's now, and she thinks he's Mr. Graham, the business manager.
Harry Morton: After the man has been there a while, he'll believe it himself.

Harry Morton: I'm a patient man but this is too much to ask.
Blanche Morton: I don't know about you being a man but if you don't do this for me you'll be a patient!


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Perry & Pete/Gracie's Cousins/Sneak Thieves (#3.35)" (1953)
Blanche Morton: Harry, I think it's very nice of George to let them stay there. It's more than you would do.
Harry Morton: Blanche, what did you have in mind?
Blanche Morton: Well, I thought it would be nice if my brother came down.
Harry Morton: With what?

Blanche Morton: You're just mad at my brother because you had to pay a dental bill for him once. It was only eighty dollars. Besides, anybody could have trouble with his teeth.
Harry Morton: Well he wouldn't if he'd learn to open beer bottles with an opener!

Blanche Morton: You just don't like anybody in my family. Take my mother, she was here for a whole month and you didn't say one single word to her!
Harry Morton: I didn't want to interrupt her.

Blanche Morton: Don't know why I had to marry you.
Harry Morton: I know why. You wanted a handsome, intelligent man who was gonna amount to something.
Blanche Morton: I know, but answer my question. Why did I marry you?


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: George Goes Skiing (#6.16)" (1956)
Blanche Morton: I think it's wonderful the way you and Jim share things together.
Mr. Boardman: Yes, I've always believed in a strong father and son relationship.
Gracie Allen: Oh, so have I! In fact, if a son and father weren't related to each other, they wouldn't even be in the same family!

Blanche Morton: Anyhow, I admire what you've done with Jim.
Mr. Boardman: Well, I felt it was my duty to share his experiences. Of course, I wasn't always able to keep him out of mischief. You know, boys will be boys.
Gracie Allen: Well, when they're young it's the nicest thing they could be.

Mr. Boardman: When he joined the Boy Scouts, I became Scoutmaster to the troupe in which he belonged. Oh, I shared many happy moments with Jim and the other lads.
Gracie Allen: Oh, it must have been fun!
Mr. Boardman: Yes, it was. I taught them how to build campfires, how to boil meat on a stick and how to bake potatoes in their skins.
Gracie Allen: I hope it was a big campfire.
Mr. Boardman: Why?
Gracie Allen: Well, otherwise the boys might have caught cold, sitting around with nothing on, waiting for the meat and potatoes to be cooked.
Mr. Boardman: No, I meant they were in their jackets.
Gracie Allen: Well, they could have caught cold from here down too, you know!
Blanche Morton: Oh no, no, honey, the baked potatoes were in their jackets.
Gracie Allen: Well, alright, that kept their jackets warm, but from here down they were still in trouble!
Mr. Boardman: Mrs. Burns, the jackets were on the potatoes.
Gracie Allen: Oh. Then the boys were cold from here up too. What kind of a Scoutmaster were you?

Blanche Morton: Mr. Boardman's a wonderful father! Gee, George should be more like him. He should do more things with his son and be closer to him.
Gracie Allen: Why should George do things with Mr. Boardman's son? He's got a son of his own to be close to!


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: The Home Graduation (#7.38)" (1957)
Harry Morton: What is this I'm attempting to eat?
Blanche Morton: That's a breaded Viennese cutlet, I got it out of the cookbook.
Harry Morton: You forgot to remove the cover!

Blanche Morton: You and your constant complaints. What happened to the warm, kind, romantic man I married?
Harry Morton: Practically everything!

Gracie Allen: I know I've got a wonderful idea but I can't think of it.
Blanche Morton: Well, maybe I can help you think of something. You know what they say, "Two heads are better than one."
Harry Morton: In this particular case, I don't believe they are even the equivalent of one.
Blanche Morton: Well, why don't you help us? With four heads we can't miss.


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: The Publicity Marriage (#8.27)" (1958)
Blanche Morton: Been doing some baking, huh?
Gracie Allen: Mmm-hmm, macaroons. Have one.
Blanche Morton: Oh, I don't know. I'm afraid of what it'll do to my shape.
Gracie Allen: Oh Blanche, how could a cookie possibly change your shape? They're both round, so it'd be a perfect fit!

Blanche Morton: That's a brilliant idea but I don't think it'll work.
Gracie Allen: Oh Blanche, you're my very best friend, so as long as you think it's a brilliant idea and if it doesn't work I'll give you credit for it.

Harry Morton: Young Ronald has married this Texas female Bonnie Sue.
Blanche Morton: Oh, I can explain that. Sit down and have your beef stew.
Harry Morton: What a horrible thing!
Blanche Morton: What's wrong with two kids getting married?
Harry Morton: I was referring to the beef stew. What a day! This culinary atrocity on top of young Ronald's marriage.


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Happy Hmm Hmm (#1.8)" (1951)
Blanche Morton: I wondered if you wanted to go to The May Company with me. They're having a January linen sale.
Gracie Allen: Oh no, I don't want any. When I buy linen, I want it to last longer than that.

Blanche Morton: Say honey, do you mind if I ask you how old George is?
Gracie Allen: No, go right ahead.
Blanche Morton: Well, how old is he?
Gracie Allen: I don't know.
Blanche Morton: You don't know his age?
Gracie Allen: Well, how could I? He keeps changing every year!
Blanche Morton: Oh but, honey, everybody's age changes.
Gracie Allen: Yeah, and it's so confusing! People should do what I do. When you get to the age that's most becoming, stay there!

Blanche Morton: [Gracie can't remember why she circled a day on the calendar] Maybe you've got a date with the dentist.
Gracie Allen: Oh, Blanche! George wouldn't let me go out with him, he's a married man!


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Gracie Gets an Extension Visa for Jeanette Duval (#5.37)" (1955)
Jean Parnell: I've been an exchange teacher here for almost a year, but I guess I can't hide my Canadian ancestry.
Blanche Morton: Oh, that must be very interesting! How does this exchange business work?
Jean Parnell: It's a very good plan. While I'm here teaching French to American students, one of your teachers is up taking my place with my French-Canadian children.
Gracie Allen: Well, that sounds like a nice change for your French-Canadian children, but how does your wife like it?
Jean Parnell: What?
Gracie Allen: Well, just when your family gets used to this other man, why, you'll be back!

Blanche Morton: What's wrong with my figure?
Harry Morton: I don't want to give you a hasty answer, Blanche. May I have an hour to assemble my notes?

Blanche Morton: Do you remember the quarrel we got into before we were married?
Harry Morton: Mmm-hmm. When will it ever end?


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Jack Benny Steals George's Joke (#2.16)" (1952)
Harry Morton: Blanche, when I woke up this morning there was twenty dollars missing from my pocket. I'm sure the maid took it.
Blanche Morton: We don't have a maid.
Harry Morton: I know.

[Blanche calls out to Gracie from the living room]
Blanche Morton: How is everything up in San Francisco?
Gracie Allen: Oh, I'm not up in San Francisco, I'm up in the bedroom.

Gracie Allen: George and Jack Benny had a terrible fight.
Blanche Morton: George and Jack Benny, after all these years?
Gracie Allen: Yeah, isn't it awful? And they're not even talking.
Blanche Morton: Oh, I just can't believe it. Why, I thought they were closer than Damon and Pythias!
Gracie Allen: Damon and Pythias? Are they as close as Minneapolis and St. Paul?
Blanche Morton: No, no, honey, they're in mythology.
Gracie Allen: Oh, Blanche! They're in Minnesota!


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: The Burnses and Mortons Going to Hawaii (#5.40)" (1955)
Blanche Morton: I'll never learn that dance!
Gracie Allen: Oh, of course you will. The Hula is nothing but swaying and shaking and wiggling in a lot of different places at the same time. Now, I've watched you walk and you look like you've got most of it down pat!

Blanche Morton: He spent a fortune on his foreign stamp collection but when I needed a new fall wardrobe, did he get it for me? No! I was down to the point where I didn't have a stitch on my back, and he went out and bought a bunch of foreign stamps!
Gracie Allen: Oh well, he must be out of his mind! Granted, you can stick those on you, but how do you get 'em off if you want to slip into something more comfortable?


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: The Stolen Car (#8.15)" (1958)
Blanche Morton: I'm sorry to bring our troubles over to your house, Gracie.
Gracie Allen: Well, that's alright, Blanche. You know, it's a good idea for a husband and wife to do all their quarreling somewhere else, it keeps their own home nice and happy.

Blanche Morton: Gracie, do you think it's right for us to keep putting these things over on our husbands?
Gracie Allen: Well, always remember, Blanche, it's the battle between two different ways of life. Men and women.
Blanche Morton: A battle of the sexes.
Gracie Allen: Sex has nothing to do with it. We have to use tricks because who gets pushed around?
Blanche Morton: Right! And who has to beg for money?
Gracie Allen: Right! And who has to do all the work?
Blanche Morton: Right! And who has to take all the orders?
Gracie Allen: Right! So if we didn't use trickery, they'd have us doing these things!
Blanche Morton: Ri...


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: The Beverly Hills Uplift Society (#2.2)" (1951)
Blanche Morton: I'll fix lunch for the girls while you're gone.
Gracie Allen: Blanche, how about some sandwiches and maybe a salad?
Blanche Morton: Alright. But you know, half the girls are on a diet. Do you think I ought to make it without dressing?
Gracie Allen: Well, as long as you're alone and pull down the shade, whose business is it?

Blanche Morton: That reminds me of something cute Gracie said. You know, she went to the Carnation farm, and she said that all of their cows are especially equipped to fill four cans at one time!


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: The Japanese Texan (#8.20)" (1958)
Gracie Allen: I'll make George do it.

Blanche Morton: Gracie, you're giving a dinner party tonight to celebrate your tenth?
Gracie Allen: Yeah.
Blanche Morton: Your tenth what?
Gracie Allen: Blanche, one thing at a time. Look, I thought of the number and I'm sure when the time comes I'll be able to think of something to go with it.

Blanche Morton: Will the distinguished Representative from California yield long enough to eat his eggs?
Harry Morton: Do forgive me. When I'm on the subject of California, I get carried away.
Mrs. Millicent Sohmers: But not far enough.

Blanche Morton: By the way, Harry, Mrs. Sohmers and I'll need the car today to go house hunting.
Harry Morton: Well, I'm sure you'll find many charming places here in Beverly Hills.
Mrs. Millicent Sohmers: Yes, I'm going to locate in Pasadena.
Blanche Morton: By the way, Mrs. Sohmers, how come you decided on Pasadena instead of Beverly Hills?
Mrs. Millicent Sohmers: Well, there's nothing wrong with Beverly Hills. If I had lived next door to her as long as you have, I'd get used to it too, but I haven't and I'm too old to start.


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Too Many Fathers (#8.18)" (1958)
Harry Morton: Blanche, this is no time for amorous dalliance.

Harry Morton: In the far distant past.

Blanche Morton: Don't you remember when I used to sit on your lap and snuggle? You were once romantic!
Harry Morton: You were once twenty pounds lighter!

Gracie Allen: Oh, wonderful, I'll have the same thing.

Blanche Morton: Peter, what would you recommend?
Peter the Waiter: That couple over there just had some lobsters.
Blanche Morton: Oh, lobsters.
Peter the Waiter: They're here from Baltimore, they're here to see the sights.
Gracie Allen: Oh. Well, if they're here to see the sights, it would spoil their fun if we ate them.


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Rumba Lessons (#1.7)" (1950)
Blanche Morton: [returning home from the beauty parlor] My operator's a very clever girl. I wouldn't let *anybody* else touch my hair. In fact, you know what she told me today? Women are going to wear their hair longer.
Gracie Allen: Oh, well, that's ridiculous. I'm *already* wearing my hair twenty-four hours a day.

Gracie Allen: You know, one night George came to visit me, and he brought me a bag of jellybeans, and we were sitting on the sofa and my mother came in and turned out all the lights, and...
Blanche Morton: Your MOTHER turned out the lights?
Gracie Allen: Yeah, she couldn't stand to look at George.
Blanche Morton: Oh. Well, I'll bet George didn't waste any time when the lights were out.
Gracie Allen: Oh, I'll say he didn't! He ate all the black jellybeans!


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Anniversary Party (#6.9)" (1955)
Blanche Morton: Harry Morton, the day I married you was the worst day of my life!
Harry Morton: I can't choose mine. Since we wed they've all been equally bitter.

Blanche Morton: [Harry is busy with paperwork] Harry, this is the traveling clock I got for George and Gracie for their anniversary. Isn't it pretty the way I wrapped it?
Harry Morton: Yes, dear.
Blanche Morton: Gee, I hope they like it. You know, they have so much, I never know what to get them. Can you think of anything else?
Harry Morton: Yes, dear.
Blanche Morton: Oh, what would you suggest?
Harry Morton: Yes, dear.
Blanche Morton: Harry, is it alright if I pack my clothes and run away with the elevator boy?
Harry Morton: Yes, dear.
Blanche Morton: Maybe he IS listening. Harry, is it alright if I draw all your money out of the bank before I leave?
Harry Morton: Yes, dear.
Blanche Morton: No, he's not listening.


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Burnses and Mortons Choosing Movie to Attend (#4.37)" (1954)

"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Ronnie's Bashful (#7.9)" (1956)
Harry Morton: Is there no end to your extravagance? I labor hard for my money. Why must you labor even harder to impoverish me? Have you no thought of the future? You are like the proverbial grasshopper, chirping away with no thought that winter is coming!
Blanche Morton: I know winter's coming, I can hear all that wind.


"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Ronnie Makes a Record (#8.30)" (1958)
Blanche Morton: When Gracie says to do something, we must do it!
Harry Morton: Gracie, Gracie! Who comes first in your life, Gracie or me?
Blanche Morton: Gracie. She also comes second, third and fourth.
Harry Morton: Oh, I see. I have been relegated to fifth position in your affections.
Blanche Morton: No, that's where my mother comes. And then comes my brother Roger, and then my Aunt Martha, and then my Uncle George, and then my neices and nephews.
Harry Morton: Where, may I ask, do I come?
Blanche Morton: Well, I'm not quite sure but it's somewhere between my beauty operator and the paper boy.

Gracie Allen: Yeah, he's a man now, we'll have to treat him as one.
Blanche Morton: Well, as I was telling Harry, Ronnie seems like the same sweet little boy he always was, but Harry disagrees.
Gracie Allen: Oh?
Blanche Morton: Yeah, Harry feels he's more mature, that any day now he'll be swept away by some pretty face and fly the coop.
Gracie Allen: Oh, dear. I know how you feel, dear, but someday I expect Ronnie to do the same thing.
Blanche Morton: What?
Gracie Allen: Well, I wouldn't worry. If Harry gets tired of you, he could also get tired of a pretty face too!
Blanche Morton: No, honey, you didn't understand - I meant Ronnie!

[Gracie]
Harry Morton: stay home with her husband?

"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Going to Palm Springs (#7.21)" (1957)
Blanche Morton: [Harry Von Zell has laryngitis] You know something, Harry, you don't need a doctor. Why don't you go home and drink a glass of warm milk after a hot bath?

"The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show: Gracie Is Brilliant (#8.22)" (1958)
