    • (Opie is giving his present to Helen; Andy arrives to clear up the situation)
      Andy: Miss Crump is a fine person – just a fine person – and I can understand you likin' her a lot.
      Opie: Yes.
      Andy: But, Opie, the, uh, the truth of the matter is: Miss Crump is a little more in line with my age. As a matter of fact, she's my girl. You're kinda steppin' into my territory. Well, that's right. She's my girl – like Sharon McCall was your girl.
      Opie: Gee, Pa, I didn't know that.
      Andy: I know you didn't, son.
      Opie: Well, I won't do anything to break it up. If she's your girl, I just won't call her anymore.
      Andy: Well, thanks.
      Opie: You mean you and Miss Crump might get married someday?
      Andy: Oh, I don't know. We, we might.
      Opie: Gee, Pa, that's swell. As long as she's in the family, I don't care if she's my wife or my mother.
