Episode cast overview:
Opie Taylor (as Ronnie Howard)


Barney just can't seem to loosen up on his dates with Thelma Lou; he's ill at ease and can't put two words together unless he's talking shop. He has no trouble telling Andy how he feels about Thelma Lou - she's the cats - but he just can't tell her. After Andy tells Thelma Lou how Barney feels, she decides to make him jealous and tells him that Andy came calling on her. Barney's ready to fight; he won't listen to Andy's explanation and makes a play for Ellie. When Ellie tells Andy what happened he wishes he'd never got involved but Ellie figures out how the two of them can set the other two straight and things work out. Written by bobbymaxwell

Very enjoyable, but one of the weaker season one episodes...
12 October 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I liked this particular episode but have to admit it is one of the weaker ones from season one. That's because to make the show work, the usually nice folks of Mayberry (in particular, Thelma Lou) behave in ways that are inconsistent with their characters--something very atypical for the show. As a result, she comes off as a bit mean-spirited--something very unusual for the show.

This is the first episode to highlight Barney and Thelma Lou. While it's obvious that Barney cares for his girlfriend, he is a sap when it comes to romance and Thelma Lou is naturally frustrated. However, when she decides to make it appear as if Andy is interested in her in order to make Barney jealous, things backfire a bit--but end on a happy note.
