Goofs

During the armored truck chase scene, interior shots of Barney bouncing around clearly show the "locked" door to the outside coming open. Also, Barney at one points appears to kick the locked door open, but the scene cuts quickly away before a clear view is shown. See more »

Quotes

Opie Taylor: Pa?
Sheriff Andy Taylor: Ope, is this something we can talk about later on?
Opie Taylor: Well, if you could let me have a dime, we wouldn't even have to talk about it.

A Classic Episode With No Laugh Track....
10 February 2007 | by stalzz64See all my reviews

This is a classic episode. What a Great One! I just noticed after seeing it on DVD that there is no laugh track. I was wondering if this was an experiment? It is a fairly dramatic episode for the sitcom, so maybe they thought that they'd try it with no canned laughter like usual. This show was never filmed with an audience anyway.

Interesting....

And it was neat to see three members of the Howard family in one show--Ron, Rance, His Dad, and lil' brother Clint.

Another beautiful DVD transfer. There are so many great old shows coming out on DVD from studios like Paramount--This one was originally Desilu, like Dick Van Dyke, Star Trek and many more until 1968 when Desi and Lucy sold out to Paramount Studios, which was right next door.
