  • Never judge a book by its cover!

    A very well written episode with a good plot that weaves the story in good detail. It is actually nice to see bad weather in Maybery (for once!) Barney's entrance into Sam's house is a CLASSIC Barney moment--not to be missed! The right blend of sentiment and humor is used in this episode and is exceptionally well used at the end. Marijuana is actually mentioned in this episode (by Barney) as a potential crop that the "suspicious Sam" might be growing! Floyd is highlighted in this episode and is particularly well used. Finale with the whole town singing in joy at the birth of a new baby is pure Mayberry!
