OK...Let's find the stuff that may not be so obvious, and the ones that make you think, "Hey, I never noticed that before." and post them for all to now be able to notice.

Post the Episode and the thing you noticed.  See my first post as an example.

In The New Doctor episode Barney leaves the courthouse without his gun belt, I don't remeber seeing him in full uniform without the gun belt before. 

In Ellie Saves a Girl the Lucy TV guide is displayed on the top right hand shelf in the drug store, they used this Lucy TV guide in several episodes. 

After all, they were filming at Desilu!

True, seems I read somewhere that it is an old one, something like 1954 or so.  Interesting to me that they saved them and used them over and over. 

I wish I had some of those old props from the show. Of course, no one would believe me when I told them!

Did anyone mention the picture of opera composer Giuseppe Verdi that appears in several episodes during council meetings? The picture looks like it should be a town father or something but nope....it's Verdi. 

I bet he couldn’t sing the light classics like Barney did at the musicalé try-outs. 

Ha. Hilarious. But those selections were over their heads. 

Probably could not sing Acapella either! 

Just saw The Mayberry Band episode, I noticed that there was only a bass drum and one snare drum and yet after the band marches past Mayor Stone and goes into the alley to change uniforms back the drum cadence never stops.  That was some special drumming, lol. 

OK. Here's one I think I need help with....In the episode "Opie's Most Unforgettable Character," Andy, Howard, and Goober are sitting on the bench outside the barbershop and Andy is clearly flattered by the idea that Opie is writing his essay (on the most unforgettable character in his life) about Andy himself. Andy, feeling a bit puffed up by all this, says "I guess I have done a little living in my time." The shot moves to Goober and you hear his voice say "you can say that again" in an odd tone but his lips never move. The way the voice is recorded you can tell that this is a "voice-over" and we are hearing Goober's unexpressed thoughts. I'm ashamed to admit that I never noticed it until today. 

Now...this strikes me as exceedingly odd and raises a few questions.

1) Is there any other instance in which we hear a character's thoughts in this manner?

2) What is up with Goober at this moment? Is the tone meant to convey admiration? Some weird sense of judgment or minor resentment (jealousy perhaps)?

3) I have to admit, it sounds like the latter to me. So then what gives? Is Goober still upset about the Flora incident?
