Andy must find a way to deal with newcomers Fred and Jennie Boone, a squabbling pair whose loud and near-violent marital spats disturb the peace. Although mean and hateful to one another, they're gracious and friendly towards everyone else. Andy decides that the only way to deal with the Boones is to engineer a routine of daily counseling, teaching them how to be nice to one another with sweet talk instead of fights. It seems to be working, and Andy is proud of the results, but a noticeable problem develops: while Fred and Jennie now treat each other nicely, they are mean and hateful to everyone else. Aunt Bee suggests that maybe the fighting and insults are the way that Fred and Jennie show their love for one another. Andy figures he must now put things back the way they were in order to keep the peace; so, he engineers a plan to get them back on the mean track with one another so's to get everyone else back on their good side.
