Can you pass the Andy Griffith Show ''Pickle Story'' trivia challenge?

See if you can down these questions without choking!

Some folks declare it just about the finest episode of The Andy Griffith Show there is! Shucks, it sure is funny!

Aunt Bee shows her one major culinary failing in "The Pickle Story." She may whip up a delicious batch of chicken, but she can't pickle a cucumber to save her life. 

Barney, Andy and Opie don't have the heart to tell her. Aunt Bee wants to enter a canned-goods contest. High jinks ensue.

In The Andy Griffith Show Silver Anniversary Special in 1985, Don Knotts himself selected this as his favorite episode from the series. Hard to argue with that!

Let's see how well you remember it! It takes a Mayberry expert to get 10/14!

I'm confused about question #1. Clara's last name is Edwards. The quiz says it's Johnson. Was it Johnson in the "Pickle Story"?

9 for 14. I have been banned from ever playing checkers in Floyd's barber shop again.
I understand that everyone here who went 14 for 14 gets to ride out to Check Point
Chicky in Barney's sidecar.
That's only a 1 year ban. If you got 8/14 like I did, that's lifetime!
Hi Larry,
I had a word with Floyd, he says you are back in, but I had to get him a date with Juanita.
I don't know if I did the right thing, that Floyd is catnip to the ladies, people still speak
of the Helen Crump Affair.

8/14, can't believe I got that many correct. Must have held my mouth just right.
Are You from the South. Mom and her family are the only people I have ever heard say that - except when I periodically throw it out.
Hubby and son roll their eyes at me, old acquaintances take a half-second to remember my idiom-saving, while newer friends and strangers gawk or gape at me.

11 of 14 ..not too bad,,,love it when the judges say "kerosene" when judging Aunt Bea's pickles! I too have always wondered what a guy from Oregon was doing near Mayberry!?? He had a long trip home with those smelly pickles!

13/14 I couldn’t guess the number of the jar! This is definitely one of my favorites. Heading to Mt. Airy, NC this weekend to visit the museum and enjoy “Mayberry” for our 40th anniversary!!

Same, the number on the jar was always one detail I overlooked, but likewise, I answered all of the others correctly - also one of my all-time favorite episodes (I heartell it was Don Knotts's favorite episode as well).
