Plot Summary

Barney returns to Mayberry and gets a big ego boost when he learns he is the idol of his replacement, Warren. Barney gets as much mileage out of his legendary feats as possible before the news breaks that an escaped convict is headed to Mayberry. Warren naturally thinks Barney will want to join them on the hunt, so Barney has no choice but to go. Andy steps in and makes Barney appear to be the hero -- saving Barney's pride and Warren's fantasy.
