Are these lines actually from The Andy Griffith Show?

Prove you're familiar with Mayberry's native language.

On The Andy Griffith Show, jokes were set aside so the characters would shine, and as the show wore on, we all got used to the funny way these Mayberry folks had of expressing themselves. 

Between catchphrases, familiar phrasing and memorable episodes, we think any Andy fan will be able to discern which lines below came from The Andy Griffith Show and which ones are torn from another TV series.

Only the biggest Andy Griffith fans will be able to walk away with proof they know what they're talking about when it comes to his 1960s show. Good luck!

In question #1 wasn't it Aunt Bee that made that statement? That's why Opie planted spinach, went to the abandoned mine then ate all those apples and fell asleep in the back of a truck?

I think I may be watching too much MeTV. I could not only tell if the quotes were/were not made on The Andy Griffith show, I knew which shows they came from.
