This is a very good episode (even if I don't personally care for the character of Ernest T. Bass). Watching the metamorphisis of Ernest into a gentleman is worth the price of admission. Howard Morris was indeed a genius and was able to inject warmth and kindness into a less than appealing fellow (at times). The best part of this episode for me (other than the transformation) was Ernest meeting Ramona--and finding true love. A very lovely ending to this series, or as Andy or Barney says "there really is someone for everyone". The episode's plotting, dialogue, direction and acting are all first rate!
