  • Aunt Bee gets sloshed!

    8.0
    A wonderfully funny episode that features Aunt Bee in a rare depressed mood over the loss of a friend. She's beginning to feel old and sickly. Watching her take the medicine man's product and sing and dance around is hysterical. The funniest part of the episode is when Andy has to raid his own living room and arrest all the ladies of the club for drunkeness! A very good use of Aunt Bee and Andy. Barney's very good as well in this episode--don't miss the last scene---vintage Andy and Barney discussing Barney's health status.moreless

    • (As Andy escorts the ladies committee to jail)
      Andy: That stuff of the Colonel's that's supposed to purge the body and lift the spirit… actually what it does is give you a buzz. The Colonel calls it "elixir". Other names are "hooch", "booze", "happy water", "old red-eye". In other words, ladies, you got "gassed".

  • NOTES (2)

    • John Whedon, the writer of this episode (and several others) is the grandfather of Joss Whedon, creator of SciFi TV classics Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly.

    • After dinner, when Col. Harvey starts to light up a cigar, Opie asks him if he can make smoke come out of his ears. This is a reference to the "Mr. McBeevee" episode. In that show, Mr. McBeevee does a trick of making smoke come out of his ears, which is one of the things that Opie tells Andy and Barney that make them doubt Mr. McBeevee's existence.
