Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Opie and Andy sign their names with disappearing ink, their names disappear all at the same time, but they would have disappeared in the order they had been written.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Barney: You know, a few years back a similiar thing happened to me.
      Andy: Yeah?
      Barney: Maybe I never told you about it. The girl's name was Halycyon Loretta Winslow.
      Andy: Pretty name.
      Barney: Ugliest girl you ever saw in your life.
      Andy: Whatever happened to Halycyon?
      Barney: Well, you know she went East to one of them schools where they trim you down, clear your skin, make you walk around with a book on your head.
      Andy: Don't tell me, she turned out beautiful.
      Barney: No. She's still ugly, single and pitting prunes.

    • (The Darling clan is in town looking to get Charlene's baby, Andelina, betrothed; they discuss it with Andy and Barney)
      Briscoe: You know, the, uh, young feller that gets Andelina here comes into a pretty good dowry.
      Charlene: An eight by ten cottage on the back twenty.
      Briscoe: All it needs is a roof, some fresh mud on the floor… it'd be a real paradise. And a cow comes with it.
      Andy: Cow comes right with it, huh?
      Briscoe: And two acres of side hill with good, strong boulders.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Nearly every Darling episode features the name of a song that makes someone cry and said song is often avoided for a more cheerful tune. In this episode The Darlings actually play one of the make-em-cry songs - "There Is a Time" and sure enough Mr. Darling tears up! The beautful song (one of their best) even affects Andy though he doesn't actually cry.
