MR. Douglas: “You mean that pig can talk!?!
Mr. Ziffle: “Aw now ya gone an’ hurt his feelins. He don’t think he’s a pig at all’’.
Mr. Douglas” “We what does he think??!!
Mr. Ziffle: He thinks he’s Lassie.’’
I love green Acres. The humor stands up well, even after all these years.
Bit o’ trivia for you:
The man who played Mr. Ziffel went deaf (due to old age). So the director had stage hand with a pole standing off-camera. Whenever Mr. Ziffel had a line to say, the stage hand touched Mr. Ziffel’s leg with the pole.
