  • Who's the fairest of them all?

    An interesting idea--not always well executed but does have a nice little Mayberry ending. Ellie is in rare form in this episode--but her anger at andy over his wanting to pick her to be Miss Mayberry (to avoid having to pick someone from all the Mayberry eligible females (and their parents) who descend upon him) is a little over the top. Floyd's contribution of the song Hail to thee Miss Mayberry is a series Classic!moreless
