    • Andy: Ain't we a pickin' our peaches 'fore they're fuzzed up good?

    • Andy (introducing Floyd to Mr. Harmon): Floyd used to practice on cats. We had the baldest cats in the county.

    Notes (3)

    • Barney tells a story about someone from Mayberry who went to Hollywood and took a tour of the Star's Homes and how the bus took them to Gary Cooper's house, where they got out and looked at his newspaper. Six years later this became a scene in Taylors in Hollywood - except that Cooper's house was replaced with Cesar Romero's.

    • This episode features one of those spinning newspaper headline scenes (where the newspaper spins very fast and then stops suddenly with some dramatic headline) very common in film and TV during the 40's and 50's. This is the only time this is ever used.

    • Josie Lloyd appears as the mayor's daughter, Juanita Pike. She would appear two episodes later - being called Josephine Pike.

    Trivia (3)

    • Aunt Bee admits to Mr. Harmon, the producer, that she likes Rock Hudson. In reality, Frances Bavier starred in the 1952 film Bend of the River with Rock Hudson and Jimmy Stewart.

    • This episode introduces Howard McNear as Floyd the barber, but his last name is not Lawson. During the tour of the town, Andy introduces Mr. Harmon to Floyd and when they leave Mr. Harmon calls Floyd Mr. Colby. This matches the shop's window, which reads "COLBY'S TONSORIAL PARLOR" during the Hollywood mania.

    • This episode marks the first of many times we see Andy and Barney lock themselves in a cell.

    Allusions (2)

    • Barney mentions Western sidekick actor Gabby Hayes and Aunt Bee mentions actor Rock Hudson.

    • Barney is talking about someone from Mayberry who went to Hollywood and took a tour of the Star's Home and the bus took them to Gary Cooper's house where they got out and looked at his newspaper. This is the exact scene that was filmed in "Taylor's go to Hollywood" six years later--except that Cooper's house was replaced with Cesar Romero's.
