Barney questions the level of security at the Mayberry Security Bank but no one will apparently listen to him. The elderly guard, Asa, is asleep on a chair most of the time and his gun is as old as he is. The manager takes no interest in Barney's suggestions and Andy is no different. Barney decides to show them how insecure it all is by dressing as a cleaning woman and staging a hold-up. The bank manager and his teller are soon onto him and in the confusion, Barney locks himself in the safe. He manages to get out by kicking a hole in the back wall but when real bank robbers try to hold up the bank, they all think it's Barney trying to make his point yet again. Written by garykmcd
