The town gives a big "Welcome Home" to Jim Lindsey, a local boy who became "prosperous and famous" playing guitar with Bobby Fleet's band. He's out on his own now and bragging about all the offers he's getting. Andy becomes suspicious, though, when he finds out Jim is not paying any of his bills and borrowing money, and when he finds out Jim's not getting any mail either he asks Bobby Fleet to come to town. Bobby tells him the whole story and is ready to take Jim back. Andy catches Jim as he's about to leave town and has to arrest him to get him to see Bobby, who pays his debts and offers him a raise to rejoin the band. Jim agrees and they shake on it. Written by
