  • Notes

    • In this episode Clara tells Bee that she is keeping company with a man, meaning she has a boyfriend. Clara is a widow who, as far as we know, never remarried.

    • This is the second time Clara makes Bee feel like she's keeping Andy from having is own life. Earlier in the series, Aunt Bee very nearly married Mayberry's dry cleaner, Fred Goss, because of Clara.
