Can you complete these running gags from Green Acres?

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

I watch "Green Acres" on TV every morning! It is so hilarious and never fails to leave me laughing out loud. Those who don't like it are likely people who don't get (or refuse to get) the warped humor that is present in every episode. You have to watch each episode from beginning to end or you might miss a key moment that shows up later on that becomes funnier the more you see it.

Got 10 out of 10. This is one of my top favorite shows. Love it. I wish MeTV store would sell green acres t-shirts.

Arnold the pig is probably the smartest compared to his human counterparts. Also he's my favorite character in the show.

Aww...only 9 of 10
Could not recall which patriotic song during Oliver's fillibusters
But I do remember Lisa imitating him about the corn "shootsing up" from the ground

10 out of 10. And I'll add my two cents to the "hotscakes" thing.

Green Acres is probably one of, if not the, most surreal sitcoms every made.
