Trivia

In real-life, Howard Morris (Ernest T. Bass) was married to Dolores Wylie, meaning that when he was after the daughter of Mrs. Wylie, he was actually married to a daughter of a Mrs. Wylie.


Quotes

Barney Fife: It's a wise man who knows not to push the limits of the law.
Briscoe Darling: He arguin' with me?
Andy Taylor: No; he's agreein' with you.
Briscoe Darling: Just so I know where I stand.


Goofs

There are discrepancies as to the marital/family status of Floyd the Barber. In The Andy Griffith Show: The Jinx (1962), Floyd mentions having a son named "Norman". In "Those Gossipin' Men", his son appears playing saxophone. And in other episodes, Floyd mentions being married. However, in The Andy Griffith Show: Floyd, the Gay Deceiver (1962), the premise of the episode is that Floyd is single and finds a companion through a "lonely hearts"/"pen pal" service. But in that episode, there is no mention of his son or that he is either divorced or widowed.


Alternate Versions

During their original airings, episodes ran exactly 24 1/2 minutes (not counting commercial time). Most syndication prints now run 22 minutes to allow for additional commercial time. Some of the missing material (which includes the episode epilogues and other miscellaneous scenes) has been restored to VHS and DVD releases of various "Andy Griffith" episodes.
