Let's start listing all the "Barney-isms".
These might be unique words that Barney invented to describe something, or perhaps a mini-lecture lecture he gave to Opie or some prisoners. Or perhaps it was a theory he shared. Barney knew a lot about a lot of things, thanks in part to his Learn a Month subscription.
I marvel at his use of the word "electronal" as he describes electronal marvels!
Barneys theory about Ernest T. Bass:
"The man's hostilities is engrained, its carved in the deepest recesses of his subconscience id, his behavior patterns are a permanent fixture of his behavior, now when you've got patterns that are engrained then any conflicting conflicts that you might inflict, well they can cause a traumatic......trauma"
Barney to Big Maude--illustrating his healthy ego and a definite sense of optimism: "Let me take you to the land of rhythm and pleasure."
That's what you call a compelsion. Lot of folks have 'em...some folks have to "warsh" their hands all the time..That's a hand-warshing" compelsion.
For folks with that kinda compelsion complex, it's "therapetic"!
Barney talkiong to Andy: Maybe he's one of them "cleptomineracs."
Once that iron door slams shut there will be no more peanut butter sandwiches.
Barney on hats:
Always keep your hat on in caves. Bats might lay eggs in your hair and you'll go crazy.
A hat on the bed means a death in the family.
Don't wear Barney's hat. He doesn't like that. His mother was the same way.
I remember that about his mother!
Ya know....she had a clock in her stomach.
