    Exellant,well written,great story line,shows the side of debt. collecting that is seldom seen the sherriff shows us all just why this episode is destine to be one of the top shows in this series that is destine to be a classic.The hummor is of top notch,clean fun for the whole family,great one liners as always a laugh a minute.Andy is torn between his duty and his practical sence of putting a family out of thier home,Andy tries several different ways to raise money (with the help of the whole town)in order to stop evection, when all fails Andy shows Ben just how his acts effect the family.
  • Mayberry's true values come to the forefront.

    This is a very sensitively written episode that is very, very good. The episode tackles the issue of money and possessions in a very compassionate way, and we see the true integrity and beauty of Mayberry. They all pitch together to help save a neighbor's house from being foreclosed upon by Ben Weaver. Andy tries every trick in the book to stall Ben Weaver from foreclosing on the family (and forcing Andy to serve the papers). What makes this episode so special is that it touches a universal cord in all of us to belong to a town or a community where people truly do want to help you in your time of need. A beautiful sentiment very well expressed.
