Roger Courtney invites Andy to come up to the state capital and meet the membership committee of The Esquire club and be considered for membership. Andy accepts the offer but tells him he'll be bringing Barney along also. Barney is very excited at the prospect of joining this exclusive club but he's worried that Andy may need a bit of polishing. Andy wants to be himself when meeting the club but Barney insists on putting on airs to impress them...which of course backfires. Written by tomtrekp

Classic Barney...
13 October 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film is the epitome of Barney Fife--full of himself and rather annoying. And, it's the epitome of Andy--loyal and decent and very likable. Other episodes have had the same themes, but few this well.

Andy and Barney have an opportunity to go to the big city and spend some time at an exclusive men's club. Barney, naturally, assumes he's sophisticated enough to make a good impression on the club members and will most likely be offered membership. But he tells Andy that he must let go of his simple country ways to fit in with these city folk. But, as soon as they arrive, it's obvious that Barney is at his worst and naturally everyone there is turned off by him. However, they do like Andy and offer him membership. What is Andy to do?!

While this is one of the least funny episodes I can think of, it does a lot to establish the characters and is a good episode because it doesn't shy away from being poignant. Well worth seeing.
