April 27, 1964
Andy Griffith as Sheriff Andy Taylor
Don Knotts as Deputy Barney Fife
Barney, Aunt Bee, and Thelma Lou believe Andy and Helen are engaged.
Barney starts a rumor that Andy and Helen are about to be married when he spots Andy sneaking a kiss in the jewelry store where Helen is shopping for a gift for her niece. Barney proceeds to alert the entire town, and Aunt Bee decides to redecorate Andy's room--to make it more appropriate for a bride. When Andy and Helen are brought by the house for the surprise, they surprise everyone with the truth. Barney is the goat again, but Andy calms the crowd by telling them he'll pay them all back and give Bee the room she has always wanted.
Deputy Barney Fife: [Barney trying to keep Andy from going home to dress for dinner] Well, it's a whim. Are you going to question a whim? You question a whim and you take the fun right out of it!
Sheriff Andy Taylor: Well, would it kill the whim if I just take a shower and put on some clean socks and underwear?
Deputy Barney Fife: Sure it will! It's not a whim anymore if you put on clean underwear!
Sheriff Andy Taylor: I don't understand it. But I guess a fellow shouldn't question when he's getting a free supper.
Deputy Barney Fife: That's right! Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Can you let me have $5?
