Storyline

Businessman Ben Weaver wants Andy to serve a foreclosure notice on the Scobeys after Lester Scobey misses a payment. Andy and Barney come up with the money themselves, but Ben refuses it, saying he is now owed the entire balance, and threatens Andy if he doesn't serve the paper. Barney starts the "Save the Scobey House Fund" while Andy finds legal ways to stall the process. Andy takes Lester's eyeglasses so he can't read the notice and they even hold a rummage sale, at which Ben gives Andy an ultimatum, and he decides to show Ben how mean he really is. At noon the next day, Andy, with Ben in tow, ruthlessly confronts the Scobey's and practically forces them out the door. The bewildered couple tries to move out in an orderly way but Andy will have none of it and reduces Mrs. Scobey to tears. It's even too much for Ben, who calls off the foreclosure, and Andy returns Lester's eyeglasses with a wink and a smile. Written by bobbymaxwell
