  • Quotes

    • Poem Written on the Wall of the Bank
      There once was a deputy named Fife
      Who carried a gun and a knife
      The gun was all rusty
      The knife was all dusty
      Cause' he never caught a crook in his life.

  • Notes

    • Miss Rosemary makes her one and only appearance in this episode as Barney's first love interest - although Amzie Strickland, the actress who portrayed her, would appear on the show often (as various characters). Old Barn would make quick time with Miss Rosemary before moving on to Hilda May a few episodes later - and, by the end of season one, was keeping steady company with Thelma Lou (as well as occasionally stepping out with Juanita). Despite being a bumbling greenhorn with girls in this episode, Barney would evolve into quite the ladies man in pretty short order!
