freightdawg Obit: Don Knotts (24 Feb 2006) (31) RE: Obit: Don Knotts (24 Feb 2006) 26 Feb 06

It's time to nip this! Nip it in the bud!!

Ah, come on. He's not really gone is he? I mean, can anyone so much a part of so many lives, can he ever really be gone?

One of the cable channels did a documentary on some of the great comedian duos, and one of the ones they chose was Don and Andy. Andy pointed out that Don was one of the reasons that the Andy Griffith show was so well written. One of Andy's favorites:

(Andy and Barney are out on the porch after a big meal)

Barney: My parent's anniversary is coming up.

Andy: You decided on what you are going to get them?

Barney: Yeh, (long sniff and pats his stomach) I'm gonna pour them a concret sidewalk. They been wanting one for years.

Andy: (Looking incredulously at Barney) You're a good son, Barney.

The whole scene is done so deadpan, yet you want to bust a gut laughing so hard.

I nicknamed my first hunting rifle "Barney" because all I ever needed was one bullet in my shirt pocket, and I never got to shoot it!

Policemen everwhere ought to pay their respects to Barney - He is the ultimate lawman!
