* ValuesResonance: A clip of Andy erasing a recording Opie made of a conversation of a suspect and his lawyer made in secret while defending the right to privacy and attorney-client privilege has been making the rounds ever since the revelations of the NSA's spying program.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: One episode has Opie, attempting to emulate Robin Hood, stealing food to give to a homeless man faking a bad leg. To teach Opie a lesson Andy goes up to the man and offers to assist him in finding a series of jobs he believes the man could do in spite of his leg. The man keeps making excuses for why he can't do each one, until he runs off, revealing himself to be a fraud. In short, "never help the homeless, they're just lazy." Bizarrely, the finale scene has Opie point out that none of the jobs Andy offered were actually available, so if the man had been telling the truth and accepted one of them, Andy would have looked like a complete jerk.
* HilariousInHindsight: All the times the male characters wished they could be as good with the ladies as Rock Hudson...

** Just three episodes after that we get "Aunt Bee the Crusader" in which Aunt Bee tries to stop Andy from evicting a man because of a highway project. Both sides make some really good points, but in the end it all turns out to be moot because the man was a moonshiner. As a result the message comes across as "never fight for someone else's rights, because they're probably criminals anyway."
* HilariousInHindsight: All the times the male characters wished they could be as good with the ladies as Rock Hudson... Rock Hudson was later revealed as a homosexual.

* ValuesDissonance: In "A Wife for Andy," Barney immediately disregards Helen Crump as a potential LoveInterest for Andy purely on the grounds that she can't cook very well and that she wants to keep her job after getting married. Lampshaded by Andy himself.

Lampshaded by Andy himself.himself as the episode quickly moves Barney into JerkAss territory when he tries to sabotage their burgeoning relationship... [[StayInTheKitchen simply on the grounds that she refuses to fulfill the role of a traditional housewife like a good little girl]], and comes across as a rather dickish OutOfCharacterMoment for the flawed but overall likable Barney.

** Also, the sudden addition of new neighbors in Mayberry, such as Howard Sprague and Emmett Clark, really didn't help matters much either.

* WretchedHive: Raleigh. Bit-part bad guys hail from there more often than not, and it is often used as the foil to Mayberry's wholesomeness. Nonetheless, the show is as beloved in Raleigh as it is anywhere else in North Carolina.
