The British dame continued to wow us with her fun-loving spirit this week when she hit the red carpet for the closing ceremony of the Monte Carlo TV Festival and was spotted getting cozy with none other than, 50 Cent.
In the third-season episode, "Andy Discovers America" (1963), Opie and his classmates take a dislike to their new teacher Helen Crump (whom they call "old lady Crump"). After Andy gives Opie some advice about his own experience with school (which Opie misconstrues into thinking he doesn't have to do his history schoolwork), Helen appears at the courthouse to give Andy a piece of her mind on his interference in her domain.
Andy is dumbfounded but finds a way to get the boys excited about their history assignments.
Helen is astonished but pleased with the change in Opie and his pals.
