Plot Summary

Earlie Gilley's "Line Up For Loot" promotion causes a drop in business at Goober's gas station. Goober decides to hold his own contest. He makes an error at the printer and accidentally gives away a coupon worth $200. Floyd ends up with the mistaken prize and demands satisfaction. Since Goober can't pay, Andy must jail him for fraud. It is only a ruse, of course, because as soon as Floyd sees what happened, he demands that his friend be released.
