When Clara Edwards gets an opening for a new piano student, Aunt Bee thinks Opie should take lessons. Andy isn't keen on the idea and is surprised that Opie is even interested. Opie assures everyone that he will work hard at learning the instrument and will practice every day after school. A conflict arises however when the school hires an ex-NFL player, Flip Conroy, as its new football coach. With football practice scheduled for same time as his lessons or practice time, Opie finds himself trying to be in two places at the same time. Opie and his friend Arnold cook up a scheme that doesn't quite fool anyone. Written by garykmcd
