Plot Summary

Aunt Bee drops hints that she would like a lacy bed jacket for her upcoming birthday, but Andy doesn't catch on. After giving her a set of salt and pepper shakers and two cases of canning jars, Andy realizes he's let his aunt down and rushes back to the store. The bed jacket, however, has been sold to Mayor Stoner. Dragging him out of bed, Andy begs the mayor to make a trade. Knowing he has Andy over a barrel, Stoner asks for Andy's favorite fishing pole, "Eagle Eye Annie."
