As a pastor, I have always wondered how a guy comes to a town of 1,800, with the easy lifestyle like Mayberry, and decides to preach on the topic - "What's Your Hurry?" I do find it amusing.
Yes, that was funny. As they were nodding off, relaxed as could be, the visiting pastor had to shout his sermon out to wake them up!
I always wondered how Gomer, who was a simple country boy if there ever was one, learned all those fancy, schmancy songs. "Santa Lucia" ain't for dumbbells, you know. And a guy who can belt it out while changing a tire definitely has gold-star breathing!
That's a very good question, Thelscuz!
I wonder if maybe Gomer first heard Leonard Blush singing it on the radio as he sat in his back room at Wally's filling Station. I'm just a simple country girl myself, yet it was from Leonard Blush that I first heard the amazing tones of "Who is Sylvia?" even if I did think he was singing, "Oh, Aunt Sylvia," the first time I heard it.
Come to think of it, I wouldn't know, "No Count Mule," if it wasn't for Gomer. I can't make a bed without it now.
Yes, he was preaching "What's Your Hurry" yet, he was in such a hurry he would not have Sunday dinner with the Taylors or even coffee later.
I wonder why they kept the Water Cooler so far away from their desks, and over with the cells?
So Otis would have a handy place to pour his booze on looong weekend stays!
Why did Virgil goof up on polishing the jail key? He was, after all, working alone.
I too have wondered that same thing.
Why did Virgil run the squad car through the garage??? He was driving all alone.
I guess at that point his only good "alone" work was making those little toy figures. Andy had to bring him to the next level with his little pep talk.
I've wondered why the school principal called Aunt Bee when Opie handcuffed Ralph Baker to the flag pole. The logical place to call would have been the Sheriff's Office.
