  • Sad!

    Just watched the episode where Barn was tryin' to give her "what for" by pretending to be making a date on the phone as the phone actually rings.

    (Classic Andy line) You wanna' get that Barn, you're closer!

    Thel says shame you have a date, that she was hoping to go to the "duck pond".

    But as she turns to leave, the grin she gave Andy was priceless!
