  • The Art of the Deal!

    Sterling Holloway is amazing in his role as the travelling salesman, and truly creates a priceless and really memorable character. Will Wright has never been better and more ornery. Watching Andy deal with Ben Weaver and teach him a thing or two about selling is wonderful. The ending is not to be missed and truly is inspirational as Andy pitts Weaver's store against the one in Mount Pilot. Ultimately this is to the advantage of Bert Miller(Sterling Holloway's character). The best line in the episode is when Ben Weaver states that he'll be hiring the second best salesman in the county..and that the best salesman is the one he's looking at (Andy!) Watching Andy in this ending is a bit like looking at the cat that swallowed the canary.moreless
