    • (Opie signs up for the race, Barney tells Opie he won a medal when he was young)
      Opie: You trained and won your self a medal?
      Barney: That's right, I trained... trained real hard 'til I was just one big muscle from the tip of my toes to the top of my head.
      Opie: Boy. Would you show me how to train, Barney?
      Barney: Why I sure would. And I don't mind telling, you've come to the right place, too.
      Opie: You mean you're gonna make me one big muscle, too?
      Barney: Yeah.
      Andy: 'Cept in your case, we'll try to stop at the neck.
      Barney: That's very comical, Andy. Only comicalness don't win no medals.
