Don Knotts has Died
"Well, I guess to sum it up, you could say, there's three reasons why there's so little crime in Mayberry. There is Andy, and then there's me and [ patting his holstered gun] baby makes three."
Barneys' reply to one of Andys smart ass comments:
"You're a riot, you know that? Why don't you go some place and have it?"
I guess you could say that Barney was as much a part of our lives than anyone else I can think of. I, like many others, grew up with old Barn. His antics and actions still seem fresh and I never tire of watching them. There just isn't any show on Television that could ever hope to match it.
Barney once expressed his biggest fear: "Swept into the dustbin of history--Exit, Barney Fife."
Nope, old Fast -gun Fife will never be swept into the dustbin of history--And neither will Don Knotts.
