Missed #2.
My favorite part of this episode is when Opie takes up for his Dad when Gentleman Dan pulls a gun on him.

8/10. I like how Andy says "Barney!" after he shoots the gun into the air and it actually had a bullet in it.

At 68yrs young, I still love to to grab my Andy, Barney and the gang DVD series and watch a few episodes..I grew up with them all and whenever I need a “Ang and Barney” fix, I just reach for the DVD’s…!

Retest: I got 10 out of 10 correct.
Amazing how you can always get 10 out 10 on the "retest" since you now know the answers.

Despite my score, this is one of my favorite episodes. "Gentleman Dan Caldwell" has such a... sinister but at the same time, likeable presence.

Oh no! Mayberry should be a relaxing place. I find it a welcome respite from the world.
They're not keeping track of your score, and they are not putting these on your permanent record.
Right, MeTV staff, you're not grading us on these Mayberry quizzes and you're not putting the scores on our permanent records, are you?!
See, now you have me worried.
