Opie Taylor (as Ronny Howard)
Suzanne Taylor ...
Girl who crashes car (as Sue Taylor)
Dr. Bennett


After being involved in a minor accident - no more than an fender bender really - Goober is just fine and shrugs it all off. As others in the town hear about it, they begin to regale him with tales of people they know who suffered greatly from what initially was just a minor bump or scrape. Soon, Goober begins to develop symptoms of paralysis and whiplash and even ends up living in Andy's bedroom, unable to care for himself. Andy is convinced that it's all psychosomatic but has to figure out a way to get Goober to realize that he is perfectly fine. Written by garykmcd
