After being warned for the last time about fighting and disturbing the peace, Fred and Jenny Boone are at it again the next morning when Barney hears them and brings them in. Since nothing else has worked, Andy tries a little experiment - he makes them come in every morning for fifteen minutes to sit and speak politely to one another - which seems to work. At home, he tells Opie and Billy they will earn five cents each for playing nice after he catches them fighting. Well, the Boones learn to be polite to each other but start snapping at everyone else. Fred assaults his card-playing buddies and Jenny almost takes Aunt Bee's head off over an innocent remark. Billy stops coming over to play because it's no fun anymore. Andy realizes that "what looks like 'rasslin' to one is dancin' to another" and calls off the experiment after ten days. Written by
