Episode Name: rafe hollister signs Episode #: #83
Barney was all excited about try-outs for the Lady's League Musicale, but Andy foiled his plans of getting picked by sending Rafe Hollister over to try out as well. Rafe Hollister was chosen to represent Mayberry at the Lady's League Musicale because of his beautiful voice. However, Mayor Stoner and Mrs. Jeffries objected to Rafe's appearance, and even after Andy helped Rafe "look the part", they still didn't want Rafe to "associate" with anyone. Andy turned the tables on the two by allowing Rafe to appear at the Musicale dressed in bib overalls and work boots. Rafe's voice came shining through on "Look Down That Lonesome Road", inducing Mrs. Dennis to ask Rafe to "favor us with another selection." The final scene before the Epilog shows Rafe leading the audience in a rousing rendition of "New River Train". Now, here's the Epilog:

[Andy and Opie come into the courthouse and hear Barney "warming up" his voice again.]
Barn (singing): "Ah-ah-ah-AH-ah-ah-ah..."
Andy: "Hey, Barn? HEY BARN! [Barney stops singing.] What're you doin' NOW?"
Barn: "Gettin' ready for next year's try-outs."
Andy: "So soon?"
Barn: "Yeah. Boy I'm really gonna work on it this time. If you don't go invitin' the whole town to enter I'm gonna stand a chance."
Andy: "What're you talkin' about?"
Barn: "Oh, the way you invited Rafe Hollister to enter there, and it turned out he had a better selection than me and he won."
Andy: "Oh, come on, Barn."
Barn: "This time I got the perfect selection."
Andy: "What?"
Barn: "Crawdad Song. Here, give me some accompaniment."
[Barney hands Andy his guitar.]
Andy: "Hmm. All right." (Starts playing the guitar.)
Barn: (Singing the wrong melody to the words): "Oh, you get a line, and I'll get a pole, and we'll go down, to the crawdad hole."
Opie: "Barney? BARNEY! [Barney stops singing.] I hate to butt in, but that ain't the way it goes. It goes like this:"
[Opie turns around to face Andy and begins singing. Andy comes in with the guitar.]
Opie (singing): "You get a line and I'll get a pole, honey.
"You get a line and I'll get a pole, babe.
"You get a line and I'll get a pole,
"We'll go down to the crawdad hole, honey, baby mine."
Andy: "You know you're right, Ope? Hey Ope, why don't you go along at them singin' try-outs next year? How 'bout it, Barn? Wanna take Ope along..."
[Andy turns around just in time to see Barney walking out of the courthouse, the door closing behind him. Andy and Opie then sing one more chorus of "Crawdad Song" together. THE END]

Episode Name: Aunt Bee the Warden Episode #: 55
As you know Aunt Bee tries to reform Otis of his ways when he stays at the Taylor house because the Gordon boys are staying in the jail cells after being brought in on moonshining charges. They think Otis ratted them out so that is why Otis can't stay there. Barney decides to try to rehabilitate the Gordon boys by giving them each a different kind of kit. A leathercraft kit, metalcraft kit, a woodcraft kit and a Mr. Potato kit. Well the Gordon boys escape using these. Here is the Epilogue:

Andy drives up to his house in the patrol car after re-capturing the Gordon boys and tells Barney that maybe Aunt Bee can rehabilitate them. They Gordon boys pitch a fit and said that they have heard about "The Rock" and "Bloody Mary", as Otis called her.

Episode Name: Goodbye, Sherriff Taylor Episode #: 137
This is a classic in my book. Andy is offered a job in Raleigh and leaves Barney in charge while he oges for the interview. Almost as soon as Andy is outside the city limits, all heck breaks loose, with a kid's head in a sewer, a fruit-filching temporary deputy (80- something Judd) and a wreck that erupts into a near riot in front of the courthouse. Barney decides the job is too big for him and is very relieved when Andy chooses to stay in Mayberry. EPILOG: When it appeared that Andy might take the job in Raleigh, Barney immediately began looking for a deputy of his own-- one to be chosen from Judd, Otis and Goober. During their "training", Barney tested their reflexes by tossing them vegetables, of all things. Goober caught his tater but Otis, off in dreamland, missed his tomato, which splattered all over his clean white shirt. Otis never quite forgave Barney or got over this outrage. In the epilogue, Andy and Barney are discussing what went on during all this time, when there is a knock on the courthouse door. Barney swings the door open wide and SPLAT! Otis nails him square on the chest with a tomato of his own. "now YOU know what it feels like!", Otis hollers with a big grin on his face, and disappears into the day laughing uproariously at getting Barney back. the camera cuts to Barney, who is furious. Andy just laughs. This episode is one of my top 5 favorites and is so great, it seems to go on and on. The exchange between Barney and Floyd after the traffic jam is, I think, the finest piece of writing and acting ever done, not only on TAGS but in all of television, and I've watched a lot of television for a long time. Nothing about TAGS will ever be equaled. Thank God we still have it to watch. From Myra Reid (not Koontz, though my husband says it sounds like we do have a lot in common)

Episode Name: The Pickle Story Episode #: 43
Andy is in the kitchen eating breakfast. Barney comes in the kitchen door and says "You coming to work?" Andy replies "Is it 8 o'clock already?" Barney: "You kidding, its 3 past". Andy then invites Barney to have some coffee and toast with some jam or marmalade on it. Barney gets a piece of toast and opens the orange marmalade to spread on it. As he is spreading the marmalade on the toast both he and Andy notice an odor. Barney asks "Have you been painting?" And Andy replies that he wasn't but that Opie had been using model glue earlier. As Barney starts to put the toast with the marmalade on it into his mouth, he jerks it back real quick and says "I found it". It turns out that the marmalade was no better than the "kerosene cucumbers". I believe they compared it to turpentine. Anyway, Andy says "Well what are you waiting for? Get your suitcase."

Episode Name: The Perfect Female Episode #: 40
Thelma Lou's cousin Karen visits Mayberry and Barney and Thelma Lou hook her up with Andy. But Karen resents Andy's placing her in a traditional female role, so she competes with (and defeats) Andy in the annual skeet-shooting contest. Andy realizes he has been unfair and apologizes to her. EPILOGUE: Andy, Karen, Barney and Thelma Lou are still on the shooting range and Andy asks Karen if she is as handy with a pistol as she is with a shotgun. She shows her talent by using Andy's pistol to shoot down a row of empty bottles set up as targets. When Barney says anybody can hit a target when it's sitting still and brags on his "quick-draw" ability, Andy challenges him to demonstrate. Barney puffs out his chest, grabs for the gun in his holster and, of course, fires a shot through the holster into the ground. Embarrassed, Barney walks over to his target bottles and knocks them off by hand. Submitted by Mr. Schwump

You know changes; new taste sensations. Andy:On a strawberry sundae? Goober:Yeah, you know sooner or later somethin's bound to take the place of cherry's, maybe pickles ain't the answer, could be olives but at least let the younger generation have their say!

First, a brief synopsis of the episode: Opie and his friends try to sell a useless product called "Miracle Salve". When Trey gives up and sends his back, he receives a letter saying he is being blacklisted. Barney and Gomer decide to "outfox a fox" and "fight fire with fire" and visit the men who run the salve business, posing as a veterinarian, Dr. Pendyke, and his cohort, Opie Taylor, Sr., who get the owners to buy back the salve from the boys. The plan backfires and all of the salve is shipped to Andy's house, addressed to "Opie Taylor, Sr." Now the epilogue: Andy and Barney are in the courthouse, and the corner is stacked high with boxes of Miracle Salve.
Andy: Get this stuff out of here! It's all over everywhere! Now, you got yourself into this mess, you can just get out of it--Doctor PENDYKE!

Gomer: I rounded up as many as I could find, Barney! Come on in, fellers!
Barney: Yes, yes, come on in, fellers, come on, come on, Ope, have a seat...heh heh.
(The boys sit in chairs that have been arranged in rows as Barney stands up front to speak.)
Barney: Now *I* know, and Sheriff Tayler knows, that for a long time now, you've been trying to sell this thing they call "Miracle Salve". Now we ALSO know that you've been under considerable pressure to sell it. In other words, your former employers used...uh...
Andy: ...Intimidation?
Barney: Yeah, intimidation! Now there's not gonna be any more pressure, there's not gonna be any more intimidation. We just want you to go out there and SELL THAT SALVE! And who knows, you just might be the one to WIN THAT PONY! How 'BOUT it???

of supplying the chair and the customers. As it turns out, the new barber is a bookie, and Barney jumps in to bust the criminals.

Andy: Is that right?
Floyd: You know all those phone calls of his? I just realized something, they ain't weren't just ordinary phone calls....
Andy: They weren't?
Floyd: No, of course not, oh I must have been blind. How could I believe they were customers, making reservations? How could I be so stupid?
Andy: Ah, well Floyd. ah, as a matter of fact?
Floyd: Of course, they weren't anything of the sort! Oh, I admit that he had me fooled, no, but now, I know what he's up to.

Floyd: That's two dollars even!
Barney: Two dollars??!! I thought a haircut was $1.75. What's the other 2 bits for?
Floyd: Well, for tonic. You said you wanted tonic.
Barney: I did not! I said I didn't want it dry, I wanted water.
Floyd: But I used tonic, water's no good for the hair, it drys up your scalp.
Barney: Well I'm not gonna pay for it!
Floyd: The heck you're not, you got it on your head!
Barney: Well, I didn't ask for it!
(Andy enters the Barbershop)
Andy: What goin on?
Barney: Floyd used tonic on my hair and I didn't ask for it, so I'm not gonna pay him the quarter.

Floyd: So what!
Andy: Give him the quarter!
Barney: Andy, I'm not givin him the quarter, I mean he could pull that on some people, he's not pulling that on me!

Episode Name: Opie's Charity Episode #: 5
Tom Silby makes his return to Mayberry after having left his wife Annabelle two years before for being so proud, and for picking at him for his drinking. Annabelle couldn't bear the thought of the whole town knowing that Tom had run out on her however, so she made up a story about him being run over and killed by a taxicab in Charlottesville. She even had a big mahogany box sent back to Mayberry and had it buried like Tom was in it. Tom found that he didn't need to drink if Annabelle wasn't nagging him, and he even started to miss her. He returned to town just to check on how she was doing, but Andy got Tom and Annabelle back together. Also, Opie is chastised by Andy for giving a measly three cents to the Underprivileged Children's Fund Drive. In reality, Andy is just afraid of what the town might think of him because of what Opie has done. However, Opie explains that he's saving his money to buy a friend a winter coat that her family can't afford. After Opie has explained, he asks what they're having for supper. Andy, feeling foolish for not trusting his son to do the right thing, replies, "You all are havin' fried chicken. I'm havin' crow." Here is the Epilog:

[Andy and Tom Silby are sitting on the bench outside the courthouse, whittling.]
Andy: "Tom, how's it feel bein' back?"
Tom: "Just fine, Andy. It's gonna be all right. You know this morning Annabelle and me we went and took a walk over to the cemetery where I'm buried."
Andy: "You did?"
Tom: "Mm-hmm."
Andy: "You sound like you're beginnin' to believe you really are buried over there."
Tom: "Well that's the whole idea, Andy. You see, the hen-pecked Tom Silby, the one who drank too much, he IS buried over there."
Andy: "Oh, I see what you mean. 'Course, I never did really believe you was buried over there."
Tom: "You mean you knew all along?"
Andy: "No, not exactly. Just with all the alcohol you had in your system it seemed mighty peculiar that the grass over ya was growin' so well."
[They both laugh, and continue whittling. THE END]

Episode Name: Dogs, Dogs, Dogs Episode #: 93
Did you ever wonder whatever happened to all those dogs in "Dogs, Dogs, Dogs"? If you didn't see the Epilog (or it's been a long time since you have), you probably don't know. In the story, the dogs became the heroes after they softened the bureaucratic heart of Mr. Somerset, the inspector sent by the State to investigate the Mayberry Sheriff's Office's request for additional funds. Mr. Somerset was a dog-owner himself, and was very pleased to see so many fine looking dogs in the Sheriff's Office. After he left, Andy said to Barney in amazement of Mr. Somerset's change of heart, "Well, what do you know? The quality of mercy is not strained. You wasn't talkin' to a jerk, you know." Now, here's the Epilog:

[Andy and Barney walk slowly into the courthouse and lean against the closed door, exhausted.]
Barn: "Well, I would never want to have to do that again."
Andy: "Me neither. But, at least we got 'em all in homes, anyhow."
Barn: "Yeah."
Andy: "That's one thing."
Barn: "You know it's surprising how many people will take a dog in if you just ask 'em."
Andy: "Yeah, it is."
[The door moves slightly with a muffled rattle, bumping into Andy and Barn, who stand firm.]
Barn: "Somebody tryin' to get in?"
Andy: "If it's them dogs, I ain't budgin'."
[The door rattles again. Andy slowly opens the door and peeks out, then steps back and opens the door wide. A scruffy-looking man walks in.]
Man: "Sheriff?"
Andy: "Yessir."
Man: "Biggars is the name. Clint Biggars."
Andy: "Well what can we do for ya, Mr. Biggars?"
Clint: "Someone was tellin' me that they seen you awhile back with a whole pack'a dogs."
Andy: "What about it?"
Clint: "Why, I been huntin' them critters high and low. Them's MY dogs."
Andy: "How's that?"
Clint: "There's eleven of 'em to be exact. Airedale, Basset, Terrier, one little scraggly one. Them's the dogs you had in your car, ain't they?"
Andy (Sighs real big, looks at Barney): "Well don't just stand there, let's get some rope and go get 'em."
[All three leave and close the door. THE END]

Episode Name: Rafe Hollister Sings Episode #: 83
Barney was all excited about try-outs for the Lady's League Musicale, but Andy foiled his plans of getting picked by sending Rafe Hollister over to try out as well. Rafe Hollister was chosen to represent Mayberry at the Lady's League Musicale because of his beautiful voice. However, Mayor Stoner and Mrs. Jeffries objected to Rafe's appearance, and even after Andy helped Rafe "look the part", they still didn't want Rafe to "associate" with anyone. Andy turned the tables on the two by allowing Rafe to appear at the Musicale dressed in bib overalls and work boots. Rafe's voice came shining through on "Look Down That Lonesome Road", inducing Mrs. Dennis to ask Rafe to "favor us with another selection." The final scene before the Epilog shows Rafe leading the audience in a rousing rendition of "New River Train". Now, here's the Epilog:

[Andy and Opie come into the courthouse and hear Barney "warming up" his voice again.]
Barn (singing): "Ah-ah-ah-AH-ah-ah-ah..."
Andy: "Hey, Barn? HEY BARN! [Barney stops singing.] What're you doin' NOW?"
Barn: "Gettin' ready for next year's try-outs."
Andy: "So soon?"
Barn: "Yeah. Boy I'm really gonna work on it this time. If you don't go invitin' the whole town to enter I'm gonna stand a chance."
Andy: "What're you talkin' about?"
Barn: "Oh, the way you invited Rafe Hollister to enter there, and it turned out he had a better selection than me and he won."
Andy: "Oh, come on, Barn."
Barn: "This time I got the perfect selection."
Andy: "What?"
Barn: "Crawdad Song. Here, give me some accompaniment."
[Barney hands Andy his guitar.]
Andy: "Hmm. All right." (Starts playing the guitar.)
Barn: (Singing the wrong melody to the words): "Oh, you get a line, and I'll get a pole, and we'll go down, to the crawdad hole."
Opie: "Barney? BARNEY! [Barney stops singing.] I hate to butt in, but that ain't the way it goes. It goes like this:"
[Opie turns around to face Andy and begins singing. Andy comes in with the guitar.]
Opie (singing): "You get a line and I'll get a pole, honey.
"You get a line and I'll get a pole, babe.
"You get a line and I'll get a pole,
"We'll go down to the crawdad hole, honey, baby mine."
Andy: "You know you're right, Ope? Hey Ope, why don't you go along at them singin' try-outs next year? How 'bout it, Barn? Wanna take Ope along..."
