Money was a necessary evil in Mayberry just as it is wherever we live today.  But it didn't seem to have the all-consuming allure for the Mayberry folk that it does for some people today.  Let's think about different instances where money is mentioned, becomes the focus of an episode, or just assumes great importance for someone in The Friendly Town.

I'll start:

Opie, along with Barney and Andy, have a suspenseful week waiting to see if anyone will claim that change purse with, what was it?  $50.00?  Lessons are learned along the way:  Finders are not necessarily keepers - We should have faith in those we love - and it's not good to count your chickens before they're hatched.

Opie's Charity. He only gives a piddlin' amount like 3 cents to the under-privileged children's fund because he's saving his piggy bank full of money to spend on his girlfriend, Charlotte. "I wasn't gonna squander it, pa! I wasn't gonna squander it! What's squander?!"

"I've never seen one, Pa."
"Seen what?"
"A half a boy..."
"Poor Horatio."

Andy’s fine for fishing without a license was $25.  Am I wrong, or does that seem pretty hefty for 1965?
