Storyline

A new dating service wants to test out its questionnaire that is meant to find people with common interests and pursuits. They focus on Mayberry and soon Goober is filling out the questionnaire. Opie tries to tell him that he's not answering the questionnaire correctly - such as saying he read 30 books a month when in fact he reads that many comic books - but Goober perseveres. Soon, he's on a date with the highly educated designer of the questionnaire and it becomes painfully apparent that they have little in common. As things develop however, she soon finds there may be some advantage to the lifestyle and attraction of small-town living. Written by garykmcd

Charlene Darling as Doris at the Piano?
22 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Goober finds a girl, turns out she is too smart for him.

So Andy has Helen, and Sam Jones (Ken Berry) has his own girl as well, but it isn't Millie (didnt Millie start as Howard's woman anyway?).

Sam has some blonde named Doris.

Well, to further confuse matters, Doris is played by Maggie Peterson, who had always been Charlene Darling.

Now this wouldn't have been so bad, but all we see of the newly christened Doris is her sitting at the piano, while everyone sings.

She could have still been Charlene for all we cared.

Next to the last episode of the wonderful show.

What a way to go.
