In Season 8 Emmett Clark said "Think the rain will hurt the rhubarb?" Turns out this unusual question has a bit of history. See https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&channel=ipad_bm&...

Interesting.  Did Emmett receive the standard reply of “not if it’s in the can”?  

I wonder how little Opie would pronounce rhubarb, based on his spin-ish pronunciation of spinach.

Hey, Mayor......what episode had the rhubarb comment?

Good question! I forgot, but when I find the episode I will post it.

Found it! “Opie Steps up in Class”

I watched it.  That little exchange seemed like it would have been perfect for Floyd.  

Andy: Well you know the old saying “Be yourself.” Emerson said that. 

Emmett: Emerson? Oh yeah, Fletcher Emerson! Used to own a hardware store. He was always coming up with stuff like that. “You think the rain will hurt the rhubarb?” That was one of his.
