Andy and Helen are so busy that they can't find find any private time together. She has papers to mark and PTA meetings to attend while Andy has meetings and the like. Barney tries to make a number of suggestions as to how they can find the time but finally suggests to them that he will give them Saturday. In other words, they are both to take the day off and go to the lake and just have a nice time. Andy and Helen are very appreciative of Barney's efforts but their private time at the lake is anything but: Goober, who drove them out there, decides to stay for lunch; Barney has any number of excuses to be there including whether Opie should be allowed to go see a horror movie or that the TV repair man can't repair Helen's TV set.
