Who said it: Barney Fife or Howling Mad Murdock

Whenever these characters speak, there's always a chance for a very memorable quote.

On Now
MeTV Presents The Best of Barney Fife
Up Next:

One hardly ever dealt with crime, the other often caused it. Barney Fife from The Andy Griffith Show and Howling Mad Murdock from The A-Team are really opposite characters. 

Barney is a deputy sheriff in one of the safest towns in the world: Mayberry, North Carolina. He follows around his sheriff boss, Andy, does what he's told, makes mistakes and gets corrected quite a bit. 

Howling Mad Murdock's name speaks for itself. He will pilot anything that has the possibility to fly. He doesn't have much regard for the law, regularly helping his three peers break it and escape it. 

Though there aren't many similarites between these two characters, they do have at least one thing in common: They can say something random at any given time and without warning. 

So much so, it just might be a little difficult to tell which character said a funny or random line when you can't hear them say it.

Can you tell who said what?
