Can you understand all these things Festus says on Gunsmoke?

It's no so complexicated as it seems.

You gotta love Festus Haggen. That feller has got more fans than a dog's got hair on his back. We love him like a June morning, as he might say.

Them Haggens have a festive way of speaking. Festus may have gone from plainsman to deputy of Dodge City, but he never lost his particular way of speaking. Played by Ken Curtis, the character makes Gunsmoke a delight. 

But can you understand everything he says? See if you can define all this here Festus speak.
