Season 4 Quotes

04x29 - The Rumor Season 4 / Episode 29: - The Rumor

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!

Deputy Barney Fife: That's right! Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Can you let me have $5?

Andy Taylor: Mmm.
Barney Fife: It's a mark of us Fifes. Everything we eat goes to muscle.


Barney Fife: See there?
