Neither Andy nor Barney are too keen on working the evening shift - until they get a load of the prisoner the State Police has just brought. She's a con artist and a thief and very, very attractive.

Yet another wonderful Mayberry tale!! Susan Oliver is fabulous!!
13 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of many excellent stories from Mayberry, this one presents a young and beautiful Susan Oliver as a prisoner. Warm and well-plotted and we get to see some of Don Knotts' amazingly hilarious body-language as he gussies himself up to impress the prisoner. Also a short, side-splitting moment with Otis as he tries to get into his cell makes this episode a fun and warm and memorable one!! Susan Oliver naturally makes a play for Andy, who seems quite smitten with her (who wouldn't be?), but in the end, it's good old Barney Fife that falls for her and unlocks her cell to fix a radio inside. Andy shows up just as Susan is exiting the jail in an attempted jail-break.
