With the state inspector coming, Barney rushes out to get a prisoner and returns with Otis, who's drunk. Ralph Case arrives, doesn't like what he sees and starts writing down violations. Andy, who was out, comes in with a birthday cake for Otis. Case questions his methods and leaves ready to recommend impeachment. Case returns and goes with the lawmen to arrest a moonshiner who has locked himself in his house and is shooting at people. Brady, Case's boss, arrives just as Andy is arresting the man and is impressed by his courage. Case starts to list the violations he saw earlier at the courthouse, without much success, and drops the matter. The sheriff's department gets a clean bill of health. Written by

Sheriff Taylor, this is the worst excuse for a jail I've ever seen. I'd hate to think what would happen if something serious came up here. It would be chaotic, disastrous!
Well, there ain't no use thinkin' gloomy thoughts. Golly, look on the bright side.
Well, we'll see if there IS a bright side. I'll tell you what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna call my chief at the state capital and have him come down here and see THIS for himself.
Well, what for?
To see whether or not I'm right in recommending that ...
For He's a Jolly Good Fellow
