I think this episode is quite endearing--not necessarily "funny" per se..but very interesting on a human level. George Lindsay is such an interesting and underrated actor. His Goober is simple without being stupid--and he has such a huge heart that one cannot help but love him. His search for a girl is bittersweet--and we watch him try so hard to be someone he is not--and in the end, when we see him trying to read Aristotle after the girl has said goodbye, we are rooting for him. The final scene with Goober and the girl singing with Andy and Sam and their girlfriends cannot help but bring a smile to your lips.
