Mayberry Wisdom

Barney Fife: Well, today's eight-year-olds are tomorrow's teenagers. I say this calls for action and now. Nip it in the bud. First sign of youngsters going wrong, you've got to nip it in the bud.
Andy Taylor: I'm going to have a talk with them. What else do you want me to do?
Barney Fife: Well, don't just mollycoddle them.
Andy Taylor: I won't.
Barney Fife: Nip it. You go read any book you want on the subject of child discipline and you'll find every one of them is in favor of bud-nipping.
Andy Taylor: Okay, Barn...first thing tomorrow, I will talk to Phyllis Tickle's and Rob Bell's parents.


  1. The hilarious thing about reading this script is that I can hear Andy and Barney's voices saying the lines. Pitch perfect!

    I just hope the Bells and the Tickles don't make Robbie and Phyllis cut their own switches.

  2. Love it! Like Angus said, you got 'em pitch perfect.

  3. Barnie: You see, Ang, it's like this. Yesterday, I lost my salvation but today I decided to make Jesus Lord again.

    Andy: Wow, Barn. If you would only study the 5 points you would see the real deal. There's no need for worryin' bout all of this fallin' in and out of salvation stuff.
