  • Barney and the green eyed monster

    This is a marvellous episode where we are once again treated to the wonderful talents of Thelma Lou and Barney. I particularly enjoyed the first scene when Barney and Thelma Lou are staring at a shop's window looking at furniture and begin imagining their future home---unti they realize that this conversation is leading towards matrimony. Barney quickly retreats and we see poor Thelma being so understanding (is it any wonder she ran off and married someone else after Barney left for Raleigh?) Gomer is very well utilized in this episode as the man "in between" and the catalyst for Barney and Thelma's difficulties. A very warm and funny installment!moreless
