Episode Summary

Madeline Grayson, a rich widow that Floyd has been "pen-palling" with, announces in her next letter that she wants to meet him face-to-face. Of course, the whole time, Floyd has been pretending in his letters to be a wealthy entrepreneur. Upon news of the visit, Andy and Aunt Bee help Floyd in his masquerade by borrowing a house in town from the Devereauxs, who Andy is house-sitting for. Andy poses as Floyd's son who is home visiting from medical school, while Bee is Floyd's "maid." Floyd realizes he can't go on pretending, but can't bring himself to confess. Andy reveals to Mrs. Grayson that he's the town sheriff and, before he can explain about Floyd, gets her to reveal that she's really not a rich widow and goes around sponging off rich men.moreless
