Plot Summary

Floyd finds himself in a jam when a woman he's been corresponding with writes to say that she plans on paying him a visit in Mayberry. Floyd begs Andy for help, explaining that he has deceived his Lonely Hearts Club companion by leading her to believe that he is a wealthy businessman.
