Episode Recap

In what appears to be a common occurrence, Andy arrests Jim Lindsey, who doesn't seem to care to amount to much in life but happens to be a guitar playing whiz. When it seems clear that Jim doesn't much care to do anything more than play his guitar around town (and get arrested for disturbing the peace!) Andy gives up lecturing the boy.

However, Andy, recognizing the good fortune of having a rock and roll band stopping in town for a bite to eat schemes to get Lindsey the career he doesn't seem to want to go out and get for himself. When Bobby Fleet and his Band with a Beat flat out rejects Andy, Andy is forced to up the ante and promptly arrests Bobby and his band for a parking violation. He then arrests Jim Lindsey for resisting arrest.

Despite getting both parties together, Andy can neither force Jim to play nor can he force Bobby to listen. After executing one final and rather clever scheme, he gets Jim to show off his talent to the absolute pleasure of all invovled. Bobby Fleet promptly offers Jim a job and Jim promptly agrees, gets his stuff and is off to a new life as a real to life musician.
