  • Floyd the Fighter!

    7.0
    In one of the weakest episodes of this season, we are dealing with Floyd and Foley's decade ago battle over some haircut. The entire episode's premise is so stretched that it defies logic at some points. Even Barney cannot save this episode, (although there are, as always, some fine comedic moments from him) It just came across as flat to me.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (1)

    • (Barney leaves the courthouse to get papers signed closing the case between Floyd and Mr. Foley)
      Goober: You know, Andy... Barney's a wonderful feller, but sometimes I just don't understand him, do you?
      Andy: Yeah. He's a nut.

  • NOTES (1)

    • In this episode we learn that Goober was 5 years old when the incident between Floyd and Mr. Foley took place 19 years earlier. This would make Goober 24 years old. In later episodes he is portrayed as being considerably older, mid to late 30's.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Barney's statement - "Everybody thought they were Lucky Lindy back then" is a reference to Charles Lindbergh and his non-stop Atlantic flight from New York to Paris, the first in history. Linbergh's success was due in no small part to a tremendous amount of luck. Lindbergh became an American icon and hero and one America's first tabloid celebrities.

    • Andy: "Sinners lose their guilty stain."
      At the beginning of the episode, when Andy and Barney are humming the hymn, Andy says it is "Sinners Lose Their Guilty Stain". The hymn he refers to is actually called "There Is A Fountain", the most famous of the hymns by William Cowper (1731-1800) and usually set to "Cleansing Fountain", a 19th Century American camp meeting tune. The first stanza of the hymn is... There is a fountain filled with blood // Drawn from Immanuel's veins; // And sinners, plunged beneath that flood, // Lose all their guilty stains. // Lose all their guilty stains, // Lose all their guilty stains; // And sinners, plunged beneath that flood, // Lose all their guilty stains.
