  • Andy and Helen--Mr. and Mrs?

    Although they have done this one before (in season 2 "Three's a crowd") watching the entire town come out for what they believe is Andy and Helen's engagement is very funny and tender. We see Aunt Bee getting so emotional, as does Thelma Lou (and even Barney sheds a few tears of joy!). They redecorate Andy's room in a "dream" bedroom for a newly married couple--and Andy and Helen come in and have to inform that this is (yet again) another mistake created by Barney. What's especially nice in this episode is at the episode's conclusion, Andy tells Helen that even though this is not something they could do NOW, he hopes that someday it would happen. Helen agrees and their relationship reaches a new level of understanding for both themselves and the viewers.
