  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (1)

    • (Gomer & Barney are lost in the woods; Barney makes a snare to trap a bird) Barney: You see a wild bird just flies in there to get them berries and then it knocks against that stick there and then this, this snare, you see, just falls down on it and you got it. Gomer: Well, I guess it's gonna be tough eatin', though. A bird strong enough to move them rocks and knock that stick over's bound to be on the muscular side.

    Trivia (2)
