Andy puts Howard up for membership in the Regal Order of the Golden Door to Good Fellowship, a private Mayberry men's club. When the members vote, Goober blackballs him, thinking he is doing Howard a favor. As it turns out, Goober was told by Howard's domineering mother that Howard's father came to a ruinous end because of a weakness he had for playing cards. When Goober learns that Howard's mother was lying, the club votes again and Howard is elected unanimously.
