"I wouldn't take a dollar and a quarter for it."

The Andy Griffith Show is a favorite in our household (and a never-ending source of quotes).  In the "Manhunt" episode, Andy plots a way to get the convict into Andy's own leaking fishing boat that he had left by the lake.  When the convict discovers the leak, he is obliged to paddle right back to shore and into custody.  Andy says to Opie, "You know, this morning when we was fishing, I sure didn't enjoy having a hole in that boat. But I tell you the truth, right now I wouldn't take a dollar and a quarter for it."
Wednesday night we had a leak in the water pipes under the house.  Darling son turned out to be just the person we needed to fix the leak.  After he had successfully completed the job, I told him,
"Sometimes you're aggravating, but like Andy said about his boat, 'Right now I wouldn't take a dollar and a quarter for you.'"

  1. "Worth ever penny of it" no doubt. You know I might watch TV now, if there were more programs like Andy had.
