Mr. Spacely: Well, would the real George Jetson care to sit down?

George Jetson: I'm going to Cogswell Cogs to see about a job.
Mr. Spacely: You mean you'd work for Cogswell after all this? You'd forget your dignity and go crawling to him for a job? You'd do THAT for a few miserly dollars a week?
George Jetson: Uh-huh.
Mr. Spacely: Wait for me, Jetson, I'll go with you.

Reporter: Mr. Jetson, I guess you're quite concerned about these tests.
George Jetson: Well, I...
Mr. Spacely: - I certainly am. Sure hope nothing happens to that life jacket.
Reporter: Oh um, Mr. Spacely, your every thought must be with the courageous man who's risking his life for you.
Mr. Spacely: Huh? Who's that?
Reporter: Your test pilot, Mr. Jetson.
Mr. Spacely: Oh him, yeah, I sure am worried about him. He's wearing MY life jacket.

Mr. Spacely: You can't tempt Jetson with money, can he?

George Jetson: What are you worried about? It's my life.
Mr. Spacely: Yeah well it's MY life jacket.
George Jetson: Alright, let'er rip!
Mr. Spacely: Don't say that!

Mr. Spacely: [the life jacket, once put in the wash, is destroyed] It was hit by lightning. Missiles. It was indestructable!

Gertrude: [she comes in] Yes, Mr. Spacely?
Mr. Spaceley: Take a problem.
[she begins typing]

[his image comes up on Gertrude's computer screen]
Mr. Spaceley: Very funny. Three: Smoeone who will work for peanuts. Four: Not too bright. And Five: Someone who can push a button. That's it! Ok, what have you got?

[the screen flashes a lot of images until it comes to George's picture]

Mr. Spaceley: Penniless?
Gertrude: He is expendable.

[Mr. Spacely has ordered George via video-phone to shut the plant down, which George does promptly]

[George gulps]

Mr. Spaceley: [to Rudy 2] Where's Jetson, and why is the plant shut down?

George: Merry Christmas, sir.
Mr. Spacely: Don't call me merry! I have an image to maintain!

Marsley: I'm here to tell you to change your ways or there will be a price to pay.

Mr. Spacely: Not me, you, Jetson! You want to clear your name? Then find out how Cogswell's getting his information.
George Jetson: [gasp] You mean, *spy*? Are you suggesting I spy on him, Mr. Spacely?
Mr. Spacely: Either that or you're fired.

Mr. Spacely: Good.
[to R.U.D.I]
