The musical Darling Family - father Briscoe, daughter Charlene and four sons - show up in Mayberry to collect Charlene's fiancé, 'Dud' Wash, a soldier who is arriving on the bus the next day. The family patriarch rents a single room and sneaks in the rest of the family and Andy is soon at the hotel trying to figure out what to do with them. The Darlings are a good family and aren't really troublemakers so Andy agrees to let them stay the night at the courthouse. The real problem however is that daughter Charlene has taken a real shine to Andy and goes after him with a vengeance. She hasn't seen Dud for a while and isn't sure what her feelings are about him. Dud's arrival however sets everything straight. Written by
