    • (Andy has come to Wally's Garage to get Goober) Andy: It's Wednesday morning. You're supposed to be down at the courthouse. Goober: I know it, Andy. I know it. I told you I'd be there. ‘Member I said I'd be there? Well, I'm goin' right down there soon as I finish workin' on Gilly Walker's carburetor. Andy: You said you'd be there early. Goober: Well, that's where you'll have to call me a liar on that early part. But I'll be there ‘cause I told you I'd be there and if I said I'll be there, I'll be there. Andy: How soon? Goober: Soon as I finish workin' on Gilly Walker's carburetor. Look at that carburetor – watch yourself, Andy, it's drippin'. It's off Gilly Walker's car. He's been troubled with the durndest noise in that car. First it was "cha-weet, cha-weet, cha-weet" and I fixed that. Then it was "pucka, pucka, pucka" like old banty rooster. I think it's all in the carburetor, so I'm takin' it all apart.

    Trivia (3)

    • I realize that the idea of taking a car apart and putting it together in the courthouse is preposterous to begin with, but wouldn't Goober need an engine lift, at least?

    • So what safety "point" did Sheriff Jackson think the car in the courthouse was bringing across? That if you drive recklessly in Mayberry, your car gets impounded, disassembled, and reassembled in the courthouse for all to see? Hey, good enough.

    • If Goober wasn't supposed to leave the courthouse, how did he get his tools to take the car apart?
