SCENE NOW BLOG: What's your favorite Andy Griffith moment?

By Sheena Barnett/NEMS Daily Journal

I’m not forgiving 2012 for this one.

This week we learned about the death of beloved actor Andy Griffith. Though “The Andy Griffith Show” went off the air decades before I was born, my mom made sure I watched it. I was raised on that show. We have our favorite episodes and moments – like anything invovling the Darlings, and I love to hear, “It’s me, it’s me, it’s Ernest T!”

But Griffith has done much more than the show.

One of my favorite Andy moments comes from the movie “Waitress” that came out a few years ago. The dramady stars Keri Russell as Jenna, young pie-maker who finds out she’s pregnant by her horrible, abusive husband. Andy plays Old Joe, a lovable curmudgeon who’s a regular at Jenna’s restaurant. He offers a few wise words of advice in between being a total grumpy old man, but he’s so charming.

What’s your favorite Andy moment – from a movie or from his days as Sheriff Taylor or Matlock?
