Plot Summary

Goober becomes stricken with a psychosomatic case of whiplash and ends up being a pain in Andy's neck when the Taylors allow him to move into Andy's room until he is better. Goober catches Andy trying to trick him into realizing he's fine by trying to get him to raise his arms to catch a football. Goober gets so upset at the attempted trick that he throws his arms in the air, telling Andy that he knows he can't raise them that high. Andy gets Goober to see that he can--it's a miracle.
