Aunt Bee has been on a cost-cutting binge of late including buying Opie some too large shoes and sugar in bulk, all to save a few dollars. When she hears that the new butcher shop in town is selling beef at a saving of 10 cents a pound, she's immediately interested. The only catch is that to get the saving, you have to buy a whole side of beef - 150 lbs or so. That's fine with Bee since she has a freezer - mind you she hasn't used it for years and when it breaks down, she refuses to call the repairman from Mount Pilot because of the cost. She left with the embarrassing choice of going back to her old butcher, Mr. Foley, for help. It also leaves Andy with only one choice. Written by

When they are on the porch with the freezer in the evening and it starts sparking, it is sparking directly behind and above the freezer. On the next shot of the porch in the morning, there is no electric plug or for that matter anything in the area where the sparking occurring. The outlet it is plugged into is on the right side of where the freezer sits on the porch. See more
