Mayberry quote of the Moment:
"The Case of the Punch in the Nose" EPILOGUE transcribed by Jack Fellenzer
[The scene is inside Floyd's Barber Shop. Floyd is just finishing giving Barney a haircut.
Barney admires his new cut in the mirror.]
BARNEY: Oh, that's a good haircut, Floyd.
FLOYD: Oh, thank you, Barney.
BARNEY: Very good. (Barney reaches in his pants pocket for some money)..dollar, dollar
and a half, and..... a dollar seventy-five.
FLOYD: It's two dollars even!
BARNEY: Two dollars? I thought a haircut was a dollar seventy-five? What's the other
FLOYD: Well, for tonic! You said you wanted tonic.
BARNEY: I did not. I said I didn't want it dry. I wanted water.
FLOYD: But I USED tonic. Water's no good for the hair. It dries up your scalp.
BARNEY: Well, I'm not gonna pay for it!
FLOYD(excited): Well, the heck you're not! You've got it on your head!!
BARNEY: Well, I didn't ASK for it!
(Andy enters the Barber Shop looking perplexed by the exchange of words)
ANDY: What's going on?
BARNEY: Floyd used tonic on my hair and I didn't ask for it, so I'm not going to pay
him the quarter!
FLOYD: He DID ask for it, he ALWAYS gets tonic.
BARNEY: But I didn't ask for it THIS TIME! I didn't ask for it by name, did I?
FLOYD: So what!
ANDY: Give 'em the quarter.
BARNEY(excited): But Andy, I'm not givin' him the quarter. I mean, he can pull that on
some people....he's not pulling it on me!
ANDY(more firmly): Give him the quarter!
BARNEY:(still agitated): It's not the money. It's the principal of the thing......
ANDY(VERY firmly): Give him the quarter ! ! !
(Barney relinquishes and hands Floyd the quarter then storms out of the Barber Shop.)
(Andy turns to Floyd)
ANDY: Want to finish that haircut you started the other day?
FLOYD: It's bad.........water's bad for your hair!
