Storyline

When the State police arrest two of four bank robbers, they decide to keep them in Mayberry jail. Andy is to join the search for the remaining two criminals and agrees with Barney's suggestion that they get a third man working for them but without consulting him, Barney hires Gomer. Andy isn't convinced they can do the job but gives in to Barney's assurances that all will be okay. In fact, the two experienced criminals have Barney right where they want him and it's only thanks to Andy that keeps them from escaping - twice! When the State police set a trap for the two remaining criminals, Barney puts his foot in it again when he arrests them.. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[shouting to several prisoners]
Barney Fife: Now here at "The Rock" we have two basic rules. Memorize them so that you can say them in your sleep. The first rule is... Obey all rules. Secondly, do not write on the walls, as it takes a lot of work to erase writing off of walls.
