Plot Summary

Barney starts a rumor that Andy and Helen are about to be married when he spots Andy sneaking a kiss in the jewelry store where Helen is shopping for a gift for her niece. Barney proceeds to alert the entire town, and Aunt Bee decides to redecorate Andy's room--to make it more appropriate for a bride. When Andy and Helen are brought by the house for the surprise, they surprise everyone with the truth. Barney is the goat again, but Andy calms the crowd by telling them he'll pay them all back and gives Bee the room she has always wanted.
