Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

In the episode Opie’s Newspaper when Barney mentions “It must be the bomb,” did you ever wonder what he meant?  We’ll we’re gonna find out on this episode of Two Chairs No Waiting.

For those that don’t remember, Opie’s Newspape is where Opie takes his cue from the adults and spices up a penny newspaper he and his friend Howie publish with gossip he’s overheard. When Barney and the Taylors get a look at the new issue, they have to scramble to collect the copies before they are read by the rest of the town.

In the episode, Opie delivers the first edition of the “Mayberry Sun” to Andy and then to Barney at the courthouse.  Opie reports that he’s having a hard time selling his paper so Barney and Andy try to help by telling him he needs to branch out in his coverage.  Opie & Howie do just that and figure that the adults in town seem to enjoy the “Mayberry After Mid-night” section of the paper the most and set out to make their paper have that type content.

Just after Opie and Howie finish the first run of their revised paper, Opie delivers copies to Barney, Andy, and Aunt Bee in the Taylor’s kitchen at breakfast time.  Opie leaves them with the paper and goes out to place free copies in everyone in Mayberry’s hands or, in most cases, front porch.

The “It must be the bomb” comment comes while they are reflecting on the heat.
