Gomer Pyle or Eb Dawson: Who said it?

How well do you know your bumpkins?

On Now
MeTV Presents the Best of Jim Nabors as Gomer Pyle
Up Next:

The viewing public loves a well-meaning fool. Just look at Jim Nabors and Tom Lester, both of whom made careers out of being amiable, naive characters.

While Hooterville might be a way away from Mayberry, these characters may very well have more in common than you think. Let's see how well you can tell them apart. We'll provide a quote, you tell us which character said it.

Good luck, and be sure to share your thoughts and your score in the comments section below!

Watch Green Acres on MeTV!

  1. "I've never seen him so mad! His face was red, his ears were red, his lips were red. He looked like a stuck traffic signal."
  2. "You see, what I do is, I give myself a shampoo and then I rush my head into the refrigerator and I'm well groomed all day!"
  3. "Astro Digitronics offers more fringe benefits than any other space age company, including: unlimited sick pay, free psychoanalysis, and a year's supply of cracked crab."
  4. "I was wonderin' if you could put me up in a cell 'till I settle on my feet in someplace."
  5. "You don't think they're too porous, do you? I'd hate for my leg hairs to poke through!"
  6. "Well if you won't lend me the car, would you lend me the front seat?"
  7. "Boob? Why that's an insult in the face of the public!"
  8. "How does this sound? My butler and maid drank up all my champagne and got stoned, and I had to fire 'em!"
  9. "Wait a second! He's got a speech! He wrote it on the back of an envelope. He got the idea reading a book about Abraham Lincoln."
  10. "Chuck says he sleeps till two o'clock in the afternoon. He's gonna teach me how to do it."

10/10. It was not that I was so good at remembering what Eb said, but I knew what goober did not say.

You got 10 out of 10 - Well golllllllly, you did purdy good! I knew I would do well but was double thinking at the end because 7 of the 10 were said by Eb. Typically they are not that one-sided especially since there are so many Gomer quotes they could have used.

9/10. Go, Eb. Hated Gomer Pyle in his own show. But he was better than Goober.

I would recommend being careful on calling country folks bumpkins. Some don't take too kindly to it.
Anyhow, have to go wrong with Green Acres. Probably best of the Paul Henning rural comedies, just ahead of Petticoat Junction. 9/10

6/10. A lot of Eb. I thought they can’t all be Eb but they were.

9/10. Missed #3. I hit Gomer by accident while scrolling down. Knew that it didn't sound like something Gomer would say.
