Plot Summary

In a quandary over what to get his wife, Martha, for their anniversary, Emmett decides to buy her the fur she's always wanted. Trying to save a few dollars, he goes to Mount Pilot to see Flora Malherbe's friend in the fur business, Bernie the Furrier, (played by Ronnie Schell). While Emmett is sneaking off with Flora, he is spottted by his wife, who thinks he is having an affair. Andy spills the beans to save Emmett's hide, but the plot thickens when Emmett decides against the mink and, with Martha expecting a fur, he returns with a bathrobe. He and Andy do some fancy talking, and Emett rushes back to Mount Pilot to buy the fur.
