  • Notes

    • This episode follows the same basic storyline as season two's "Opie and the Bully." Andy even makes a reference to the advice he gave Opie back then, the punch you've been so scared of really isn't anything to be scared of at all. Although Opie got hit, Howard managed to avoid the conflict by calling his opponents bluff. Interestingly enough, Barney would face the same issue as well in the episode "Barney's Uniform" but with very different results.
