* Many, many examples, but this bit from ''The Pickle Story'' particularly stands out:
--> (looking over Aunt Bea's homemade pickles)
--> '''Barney:''' "Shoo fly!" (beat) "He's dead..."
** From the same episode, while they're surreptitiously switching out Aunt Bea's pickles:
---> '''Andy:''' "Now, you understand why we're doing this, don't you?"
---> '''Opie:''' "Uh huh; because we don't wanna hurt Aunt Bea's feelings, and you don't want me to get sick again."
* Opie is on the phone with [[HotTeacher Ms. Crump]] and Barney is prompting him:
--> '''Ms. Crump:''' "Opie, is anyone there with you?"
--> '''Opie:''' "She wants to know if anyone's here with me."
--> '''Barney:''' "No! No one! You're alone."
--> '''Opie:''' (into the phone) "Barney says no one."
* Barney tries to call Thelma-Lou while Opie is over. Opie answers the phone:
--> '''Barney:''' "Hey, pussy-cat!"
--> '''Opie:''' "Oh, hi Barney."
* Andy goes out of town on business for a day, leaving Barney in charge. When he gets back, Barney has about half the town locked up, including the Mayor, Aunt Bea, and ''Opie!''
