Plot Summary

Skippy and Daphne pay a return visit to Mayberry and get themselves pulled in intentionally for speeding and reckless driving. Andy and Barney try to get them out of town quietly so that Helen and Thelma Lou don't see them. Nothing about these ladies is quiet, and the boys barely escape with their hides. All returns to normal.

Odd Facts Known by Few

  • The highway department told Andy to extend the 50 MPH speed limit as far as Fancy Gap (an actual VA town near Andy's real-life hometown of Mt. Airy, NC).
