eavesdropping on kerri and grandpa

Grandpa:  "What was the first Andy Griffith again?"  (the first of 2 shows daily)
Me:  "The one with Thelma Lou's cousin and Gomer."
"Huh?"
"THELMA LOU'S COUSIN AND GOMER!"
(confused pause)  "What?"
"THELMA LOU'S COUSIN AND GOMER AND THE DANCE!!!"
"Oh yeah, the dance."



One hour later:

Grandpa:  "I've already forgotten what the first Andy Griffith was."
Me:  "Hmm."
"What was it again?"
"Barney set up Thelma Lou's cousin and Gomer to go to the dance!"
(longer pause)  "Now slow it down for me - what did you say it was?"
(brief prayer)  "THE DANCE!!!"
"The dance..."
"THELMA LOU'S COUSIN!  GOMER!"
"No, that was the second one."
(longer prayer)  "NO, THE SECOND ONE WAS BARNEY IN JAIL!"
"Huh?"
"THE. SECOND. ONE. WAS. BARNEY. GOT. PUT. IN. JAIL - CITIZEN'S. ARREST!!!"
"Oh yeah.  You're right."
"Thank you!"
"Huh?"
