Episode Summary

EDIT
Barney is goaded into ticketing the governor's car and mistakenly believes Andy is setting him up for a dressing-down by the governor. In fact, the governor is coming to Mayberry to give him a personal commendation for performing a job without showing favorites. In the midst of all the action, Otis secretly spikes the water tank, giving both Barney and Mayor Stoner a surprise snootful.moreless

    Barney displays the true character of citizens then. Shows that no matter who you are you get treated like all people.
  • Barney gets sloshed!

    One of my favorite episodes! Barney gives a parking ticket to the governor's car and driver despite Mayor Stoner's objections. He stands his ground and unbenownst to him the governor approves of Barney's action. Watching Barney get sloshed from Otis's "water" fountain, is priceless! This is a lovely little episode with a good moral thread running through it--that if you stick to your principles, you will be rewarded with respect. It's nice to see Barney's adherence to the law being applauded in this episode, but it's even nicer seeing him get drunk and having Andy try to sober him up. Mayor Stoner inadvertedly also gets drunk and thankfully passes out before he can meet the governor. Extremely well written and directed.moreless
