  • Quotes

    • (At the Darlings' dinner table Aunt Bee is correcting Briscoe's manners)
      Briscoe: (reaches for food, Aunt Bee hits him with spoon) Ow! Dog! For a pretty woman that reads rose poetry, you sure pack a mean spoon.
      Aunt Bee: Don't you raise your voice at the table.
      Briscoe: I'll raise my voice, I'll raise hogs, I'll raise whatever I want to raise – this is MY table. (Aunt Bee hits him with spoon) That tears it. That just tears it! (he goes over to Andy) Come on. Come on, take me away.
      Andy: What are you talkin' about?
      Briscoe: Clap them handcuffs on me, I'm breach a' promisin'.
      Andy: You're not!
      Briscoe: Yes I am. This is gone just far enough. I can take some manners, and I can take some cleanin' up, and I can take a bossy mouth. But, I ain't about to be beat to death with no spoon!
