Let's post our favorite scenes of all time.
I have two.
First, in "The Education of Ernest T. Bass", when Barney silently shows how to walk into a room in a social setting. Kisses hands. Andy jokes about his "mouthwork."
And second, in "Opie the Birdman" when Barney claims to understand bird talk. "The ways of the creatures of the wild are many and wonderful." And also, "Well, Winkin will tell Blinkin, Blinkin will tell Nod, Nod will tell Barney, and Barney will tell you."
For some reason, in "My Fair Ernest T. Bass", when Ernest T. picks up the vase and smashes the guy "dainstin" with "Romena" in the head and says "I'm cuttin' in" -- that just makes me laugh out loud every single time!
(He gave it to 'em firm...)
We all LOL at that one, too. In fact almost every line in "My Fair Ernest T," is funny.
One of my favorite scenes is in, "Barney's New Car," when they're all riding happily in the country and Thelma Lou is chattering about loving farms and then interrupts herself to scream when the steering wheel comes up like a cobra.
I have many also but the one that came to mind first is when Andy knocks on Emma Brand's front door looking for the escaped crook that's in her house behind the door and she stutters trying to say he's not there.
The scene from 'Opie's Newspaper', with Barney spilling the dirt on the Widow Saunders. So many great lines and also one of the longest scenes in the series.
Barney: "She's the type....dark haired woman."
I know I have already posted a few, but I must add. The scene with Barney dancing with Big Maude always gets me, particularly as they get part way out the door!
