Who said it: Barney Rubble or Barney Fife?

Can you nip it in the bud, good buddy?

The Flintstones and The Andy Griffith Show premiered three days apart from one another. Both sitcoms featured a sidekick character named Barney. Coincidence? 

Well, yeah, probably. Both Barney Fife and Barney Rubble became immediate comedy staples. That was thanks to the many funny things they said.

But can you tell the difference between the Stone Age neighbor and the deputy? Are these quotes from Bedrock or Mayberry? Match the line to the correct fellow!

Watch The Andy Griffith Show on MeTV!

Weeknights at 8 PM & 8:30 PM

*available in most MeTV markets
  1. "I could go up to the pickle factory. They always need a brine tester."

  5. "There's plenty goin' on right now in the Twilight Zone that we don't know anything about and I think we oughta stay clear."
  6. "It looks like Goggles Pisano is hanging up his goggles."
  7. "Don't blame me. I was the dummy. You made the decisions."
  8. "This is the age of science know-how… electronal marvels."
  9. "If there's anything I can't stand, it's a people pincher."
  10. "If I would've known that's all there was to getting a baby, I would've wished on a falling star long ago."
  11. "Kleptomineracs they call 'em… A person that steals because he can't help it. It's a sickness."
  12. "It you scrub with Sudsy-Wudsy, you'll wash away the mudsy-mudsies."
  13. "ESP — extra-sensitive perception… people on mountaintops miles apart thinking the same thing."

11/13
Mostly tried to hear these in my head with the two different voices.
#9 that strategy failed.
#3 the bowling ball should have clued me in.

11 out of 13. For "Kleptomineracs they call 'em…" I thought it was Barney Rubble because it was written as "mineracs", so I thought it might be a play with minerals "rocks", and we know how the Flintstones often has names and references to a rock.
