    • Arnold: I've never known a kid yet who could win in a man to man talk.

      Andy: I thought as a child you were sickly.
      Barney: Well, he was sicklier!

    • Opie: I heard you were kinda sensitive.
      Barney: Sensitive? Me? Sensitive?
      Andy: Barn…
      Barney: That's a nice thing to get started around. See, the only thing that upsets me is having people say that I'm sensitive. There's one thing I'm not – sensitive. Talk about being misunderstood.
      Andy: You look a little flushed.
      Barney: That's spirit! I'm a very spirited person! Big difference, you know!

    • Arnold: Kids aren't supposed to work for their allowance!

      Barney: No, I don't know! What kind of trouble?

    • Opie: Is Arnold gonna get a spankin' Paw?
      Andy: Don't you think he deserves it?
      Opie: I hate to say. After all, he is one of my own kind.
