  • Quotes

    • [Barney is talking to Otis, Judd and Goober as potential deputies]
      Barney: On this job, it's important to be fast. There's only two kinds of cops: the quick and the dead!

    • [Andy is considering a new job in Raleigh]
      Andy: Barn, you might as well know: there's a strong possibility I might just take that job.
      Barney: What'd you say?
      Andy: The job – I might take it.
      Barney: You're kiddin'.
      Andy: No, I'm not. I've been thinkin' about it quite a good bit.
      Barney: You mean leave Mayberry?
      Andy: Well, if I take the job.
      Barney: Leave Mayberry? Partners all these years and then just like that… pppt!
      Andy: Now, Barn, this is not an overnight decision. I've thought about it a lot and we've talked about it, too. I told you there, there might come a time when I'd be movin' on.
      Barney: Yeah, but I didn't think you meant anything like quittin'... I thought you just meant dyin'!
