The Andy Griffith Show

The Andy Griffith Show

Sheriff Taylor to his Aunt Bee when she has a broken down freezer full of 150 pounds of beef.


Sheriff Andy Taylor:
[Bobby Fleet & his band members were arrested off screen, now at Andy's desk] Guilty as charged. That'll be twenty dollars.


Sheriff Andy Taylor:
or 24 hours in jail.

Bobby Fleet:
[quickly spoken, in frustration] 20 fish for a crummy parking rap?

Sheriff Andy Taylor:
Well, we try to keep it low for the first offense.

Bobby Fleet:
Yeah, and how much of the 20 do you stick in your own kick?

Sheriff Andy Taylor:
Ohh, I wish you hadn't said that. I mean I don't mind an insult personally but you've offended the dignity of my robes. Now, let's see... what's our price for robe dignity offending? Why, that's $50.

Bobby Fleet:
[quickly spoken, in frustration] $50?

Sheriff Andy Taylor:
Yeah, plus the $20. That's 70 altogether.

Bobby Fleet:
Aw, come on now! Now, look Sheriff, there's no reason to get hot over the collar for this. I mean, you've got your job to do, and I've got mine. Now, uhh... Oh, that reminds me. We're playing at the capitol, over the weekend. Now, oh, how would you and your nice fine deputy here like to come and see us, huh? I'll see that you have a big time. Oh you'll be my guests, of course.

Sheriff Andy Taylor:
Oh,,,. Now, you have really done it.

Bobby Fleet:
[spoken very quickly, in exasperation] What, what, what, what, what?

Sheriff Andy Taylor:
Well you just tried to bribe me is all. That's the worst thing anybody can do. I hate to tell you what the fine is on that.

Bobby Fleet:
Never mind I don't care what the fine is. I'm not going to pay it.

Sheriff Andy Taylor:
Oh, you mean you'll take the 24 hours?

Bobby Fleet:
That's just what I mean. No hick Sheriff is going to bleed me. We'll all stay overnight.

Sheriff Andy Taylor:
Well, that's the way it'll be then.

[Andy then banged gavel, closing the case]

Sheriff Andy Taylor:
Deputy, lock up the prisoners.

Deputy Barney Fife:
Glad to! All right, let's move it along! Come on, on the double there! Come on, let's look sharp! Look sharp! Come on, get in there. And suck in that gut!

[Barney Fife jailed Bobby Fleet and his Band with a Beat members, while speaking at the same time]
