    • (Howard and Andy look at the menu on the train. Howard insists on buying)
      Andy: You know what I might have? The special--fish cakes. Might just hit the spot.
      Howard: You know something, Andy? I had my eye on that baby, too.
      Andy: Did you really?
      Howard: Yeah. You know what I like about fish is it combines a high nutritional value with flavor at a modest price.
      Andy: Can't ask anything more of a fish than that, can you?
      Howard: Anything to start with?
      Andy: Oh, I don't know. Maybe a roll.
      Howard: Well, we certainly have the same tastes. I'm a roll man myself.

  • Notes

    • Howard's mother is curiously absent during this episode. She and Howard apparently still lived together at this time (she would finally move out later in the season). It could be that she was off somewhere sulking and Howard wisely chose to ignore her!

    • Frances Bavier does not appear in this episode.

    • This is Millie's final appearance in The Andy Griffith Show and although she and Howard are only postponing their wedding, at some point they broke up because Millie will show up in the spin-off series, Mayberry RFD as Sam Jones' steady girl.
