(Henery is irritated and walks in circles)
Foghorn Leghorn: You got a hole in your glub. I keep pitching them and you keep missing them. You gotta keep your eye on the ball. Eye. Ball. Eye ball. Almost had a gag, son. Joke that is...
Foghorn Leghorn: Looky here, son, I'm no loud-mouthed schnook.
(Hits dog as he talks)
Foghorn Leghorn: This is a dog, not a chicken. Chicken's don't look like dogs. Who told you this was a chicken, son?
Nice boy, but doesn't listen to a thing you say.
You got a bum steer, son. I'm a chicken, not a schnook. You're wrong, son.

(Miss Prissy hits Foghorn in the head with a rolling pin.)
Foghorn Leghorn: Now what, I say, what's the big idea bashing me on the noggin' with a rolling pin? Clunk enough people and we'll have a nation of lump-heads. Let me guess, dearie. You're looking for a husband.
Miss Prissy: Yes!
Foghorn Leghorn: Well, you're going about it the wrong way, sister. You don't bat 'em on the bean with a rolling pin. That comes later.
Episode: Weasel While You Work (Air date: 1958)
Foghorn Leghorn: (The weasel has put Foghorn in a boiling pot) Say, boy, wouldn't you, I say, wouldn't you rather have some delicious dog soup?
The Weasel: (Shaking his head) Uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh!
Foghorn Leghorn: Well, in that case... adios, you chicken-plucking little stinker! (Runs off)...
Foghorn Leghorn: (After turning the weasel on the dog) Like beating a dead horse - he's got no get up and go.
Foghorn Leghorn: (Sees the weasel carrying off the dog) That boy's as strong as an ox, and just about as smart.
