Who doled out this fatherly advice?

Lucas McCain and Ward Cleaver are two of TV's most famous dads. Though Ward didn't fight outlaws every week and Lucas never wore a cardigan, they shared many similarities — especially when it came to teaching life lessons.

Here are quotes said by the iconic fathers from The Rifleman and Leave it to Beaver. Can you guess who said each one?

11/12...Lucas said something very similar to #1 in episode "The Clarence Bibs Story", only the line was "Son, you keep forgetting I used to be your age". Tricky one.
