Plot Summary

Andy helps his number one prisoner save face when Otis learns his brother Ralph is coming to visit. Having told his brother he is a member of the Mayberry sheriff's office, Andy makes an exception and deputizes his favorite ward long enough to convince Ralph he's a member of Mayberry's finest. As it turns out, Ralph isn't any better a man than Otis, coming in drunk to lock himself in the Mayberry jail--just as he does at home.
