Episode Summary

EDIT
The head of a local TV station enlists Aunt Bee to do a nightly cooking show, having heard about her cooking. Although she may not exude great professionalism, she has that extra "naturalness" that they're looking for. But her main concern is that someone suitable is cooking for Andy and Opie during her absence each evening. Unable to find someone, but not wanting Aunt Bee to back out of this opportunity, Andy (with Opie) maintains the pretense that a "Mrs. Parkinson" is on the job. Andy actually does the cooking -- to his and Opie's mutual gastric discomfort. After 2 days on the job, Aunt Bee shows unusual quickness of mind in seeing through the charade and finding a resolution.moreless
