Who said it: Mrs. Lovey Howell or Lisa Douglas?

There are plenty of similarities between two of the most glamorous characters across classic TV, including the way they speak!

 MGM Television/Warner Brothers

Looks, glamor, style and…. money! All things Mrs. Lovey Howell of Gilligan’s Island and Lisa Douglas of Green Acres have in common.

Both Lovey and Lisa aren’t exactly living their ideal lifestyles, ones that consist of travel and shopping sprees. Of course, Lovey would much rather be off a deserted island with a bunch of castaways and Lisa would rather be back on Park Avenue than stuck in Hooterville.  

Though they’re out of their respective comfort zones, they each bring their lifestyles with them. So much so, that it’s a little hard to tell them apart if you don’t see them in their fancy dresses or hear their accents.

Can you correctly pick who said these lavish, expensive and grand lines?

Don’t worry, it doesn’t cost a mink coat to take this quiz.

9/15 Guessed a lot. To be honest I have only watched just a handful of episodes of "Green Acres" so I'm not that familiar with it.
