    I love this episode for several reasons. Ellie Walker takes center stage and is a woman with a mission. It is nice to see a female character take charge (and that's why this particular character got phased out by the end of the season---she was much too cerebral for Andy). I love Barney "kidnapping" the farm girl, and his scene in the barn is HYSTERICAL! The ending of this episode is beyond perfect--and Andy Taylor shows his wisdom and ability to handle people in a beautiful and positive manner. I had tears in my eyes when I watched this episode for the first time. A wonderful example of the show's inherent gentleness and goodness.moreless
