  • Gomer loses his job

    7.0
    This episode is slightly disappointing because it doesn't pack as much of a punch as it could have had. On the other hand, watching Gomer grow as a character is very important and the resolution of the story has us understanding more of the charm of Gomer, and that's important for an understanding of the character and how he relates to the rest of the citizens of Mayberry.

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Andy: Say, you, uh, ain't had any luck findin' a job, huh?
      Gomer: No, but I'm goin' over to the market, now. They're advertisin' for an experienced butcher.
      Andy: Do you know anything about cuttin' meat?
      Gomer: You think they'll ask me that?

  • NOTES (2)

    • Don Knotts does not appear in this episode.

    • We learn that Gomer lives in the back of filling station in this episode but in a previous episode: "The Great Filling Station Robbery" it's clear that the filling station is deserted at night.

      When Goober takes over the operation it's never stated where Goober lives and Goober is the only recurring character whose home we never get a glimpse of.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The television show the Taylor's are watching with Gomer: "Shep" is obvioulsy a spoof of "Lassie." Listen as Shep is able to communicate rather detailed and specific ideas via a few simple barks!
