Goober is hoping to take a week's holidays and go fishing but gas station owner Wally him he may not be able to go since he can't find a replacement for him. When Goober tells his girlfriend Flora that he may cancel his trip she offers to act as his replacement. Wally thinks it's a crazy idea and everyone thinks business will go down, but he agrees. Rather than put a damper on business however, the men of Mayberry are soon lining up to so a pretty girl can serve them. When Goober comes back, he realizes he doesn't have a job anymore and decides he may have to move to Mount Pilot to get a job. When Flora hears he may be leaving, she soon has a solution to the problem. Written by garykmcd
