Goofs

The Russian member of the conference, apparently, can't speak or read English on his own. Yet he is able to read the word "pickles" on a jar in the fridge. This makes no sense considering the Russian language uses an entirely different alphabet. See more »

The last episode to feature Barney Fife.
15 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The last and best of the "Barney Returns" episodes. While almost none of the color episodes measure up to any of the episodes where Barney was actually a resident of Mayberry, this one comes close to recapturing the original chemistry. The plot is unlikely and improbable, but there is a payoff if you suspend disbelief and just enjoy this brief return to the way things used to be. The script was one of the few written by producer Aaron Ruben, one of the many people responsible for the quality and integrity most obvious in the earlier seasons of the show. Don Knotts won a fifth Emmy Award for this episode.
