That’s a great scene OP. The musicality of it reminds me of the best Seinfeld episodes. “How can that be?” “Oh, it be!!”

I can imagine the Andy of Mayberry writers laughing about the weirdness of the phrase and the writing a whole scene featuring it.

When I was but a callow youth, I did not care for Don Knotts. As an adult, I’ve come to appreciate his genius.

I work with two people who seriously say “nip it in the butt”. So funny. I laugh behind their backs.

[quote]Don Knotts was amazing

Wasn't he, though?

That show, Seasons 1-5 STILL holds up so well.

The Andy of Mayberry reference reminds me that, in the ‘60s, syndicated showings of still-airing tv series had to be under a different name. Hence, reruns then of the “Andy Griffith Show” were entitled, “Andy of Mayberry.”

R5, I was the one who made the reference and I had no idea they were the same show!

I prefer the Fred Sanford version. "That bud is nipped!"
