Plot Summary

Opie talks Andy into letting him take piano lessons. Suddenly, the lessons conflict with football practice. Trying to do both, Opie gets caught when his friend Arnold sits in as a proxy for his half hour on the ivories while Opie quarterbacks the team. The matter is solved when Coach Flip Conroy drops by and tells Opie he can do both. To illustrate his point, Conroy, an ex-New York Giant, sits down and plays a classical work on the piano.
