Barney feels quite secure in his relationship with Thelma Lou. He even brags to Andy and Gomer that he can do whatever he likes because he has her in his hip pocket. When the dim-witted Gomer tells Thelma Lou what he said, she decides to teach him a lesson. For the first time in years, she breaks their regular Tuesday night date and asks Gomer to take her to the movies instead. Barney isn't so sure of himself at this point but Thelma Lou gets herself into a bit of pickle when Gomer starts to take it all seriously and asks her to marry him. Written by
