Can you complete these running gags from Green Acres?

The show had many recurring jokes from the costumes to the credits.

Fans of Green Acres know that one of the best parts about the show is how it revisits and heightens gags over and over. The zaniness of the characters, the stories and even the credits all contributed to a sitcom that lives on well past its initial 1960s run.

Here are 10 hilarious plot points, jokes and gags that the show repeated to great effect. Can you correctly complete the sentence for each one?

9 out of 10! Just forget what was playing when Oliver gave one of his speeches.
Never figured out why he always wore the suit if he wanted to be the "American Farmer"

My favorite running gag was more of a running technique that could be applied to a different actual gag every week. The episode would start at the Douglas home, Lisa (or sometimes a random visitor) would mispronounce some word a certain way, and then for the rest of the episode everybody Oliver would run into would mispronounce the *same* word in the *same* way, without there having been any way that awareness of that error spreading from where it originated.

10 of 10. This one was pretty easy for me since I have the complete series. I do enjoy watching it in the evenings on METV much better. It just seems more fun to watch a random episode like I used to when the show first aired on TV.

8 of 10, and the two I missed, I really knew the correct answers but decided not to pick them. I share do my Birthday day and month with Eddie Albert.

My favorite gag ( from those listed ) was Mr. Haney always coming up with the exact need of the moment. And it was always a whacky proposal. Green Acres was a unique gem.

I remember one thing that he tried to sell was a planter that he called a “Mechanical Wetback.” Only saw it once and then it disappeared into tv obscurity.
