  • Malcolm to the rescue!

    A very special episode, with the wonderful character of Malcolm Merriweather returning to Mayberry. Aunt Bee is so busy doing so much, that Andy hits upon the idea of Malcolm taking over from her for a while--so that Aunt Bee can be a lady of leisure. Of course, this doesn't sit well with Aunt Bee as she begins to feel useless and out of place in her own home. Malcolm senses this and pretends to a drunkard in order for Andy to get upset and then he can leave. When Andy catches him completely sober, and realizes what he has done, there is a very sweet moment between them, as they reflect upon how important Aunt Bee is to the family. A wonderful and warm episode!
