  • Goober keeps up with the Joneses.

    I like this episode very much as it shows Goober in a new environment(the Auto Show in Raleigh) and allows us to see what happens to a very simple man when he has to compare his life to a former classmate's. This former classmate is now Vice President at a major auto manfacturer. Goober goes to great lengths to impress him, taking him (and Andy, Opie and Aunt Bee) out for dinner(when he can't really afford it). Andy tries to help him, but Goober is dead set on playing the part of an owner of a chain of garages. In the end, Goober is dejected and feels very depressed about his inability to be a "big shot". Andy stops to buy a coke at a local garage--and he gets the real story for Goober about this man. Goober's reaction and the sensitivity of the writing make this a very special episode.moreless
