This is a scene from one of the earlier seasons, when Ronnie Howard, playing Andy's son, Opie, couldn't have been much older than five or six. Andy has just learned that when the school collected money for the Underprivelaged Children's Fund, Opie's donation was a mere three cents! Andy wants to have a talk with him!
Not only is this scene brilliantly written, check out the comic timing of this talented boy! Andy is merely Ronnie's straight man, feeding him lines so he can "knock them out of the park!" No wonder little "Ronnie" would grow up to become one of our generation's most gifted directors!
Anyway, this scene always makes me giggle, even though I've seen it hundreds of times. Hope it does the same for you today! Enjoy!
