  • Andy's Girl?

    8.9
    A very funny episode with Goober head over heels with Flora the new waitress at the Diner who only has eyes for Andy. Andy's exasperation with her and attempts to avoid her are very, very good. The funniest and best scene is the one between Andy,Helen and Flora at the diner--with Helen getting frosty as she witnesses Flora's fawning over Andy!
  • Goober falls for Flora, the new waitress over at the Mayberry diner. However Flora only has eyes for Sheriff Taylor in a Charleen Darling type way and Andy wants nothing to do with her!moreless

    7.0
    One of the most solid episodes of season six. They get to develop Goober's character a little as he gets out of the filling station and has eyes for the new girl in town and asks Andy to come with him to the diner to talk him up. Griffith is great playing the frustration of trying to fend off Flora's come ons and there is a very nicely written scene when Goober realizes (unlike Ernest T or even Barney) that Andy isn't trying to beat his time, the girl just isn't interested in him. Alberta Nelson seems to specialize in playing parts where she has a big crush on a guy. Although she continued to play Goober's girl this season, earlier she played a woman at the Mayberry High school reunion that had a crush on Barney! Interesting in that here Andy tells her he's too old for her--since she played a woman who was in their same class!moreless

    • Flora: How about a piece of pie?
      Andy: No, I don't think so.
      Flora: We have fresh blueberry, the peach is simply fantastic, and the apple is real REAL yummy!
      Andy: Ok, the apple. You want a piece of pie Helen?
      Helen: Fine.
      Andy: What kind?
      Helen: Oh, whichever one's the yummy one ...

  • NOTES (1)

    • Episode brims with charm! 1st season broadcast in color. Could have been the best show of the series had George Lindsay's role been rewritten for Don Knotts.

      Watch for: Flora and Helen trading icy remarks at the diner whilst poor Andy takes on the look of a trapped rat.

      The hunting scene where Andy goes shooting for crows(and Flora secretly tags along) looks like(maybe this belongs in the nitpicks section) looks like a set borrowed straight from "Gilligan's Island"!
