Aunt Bee and Clara Johnson are both jarring homemade pickles. The only difference is that Clara's are good enough to win blue ribbons at the county fair eleven years and counting while Aunt Bee's taste like she floats them in kerosene. The boys are too polite to tell Aunt bee the truth about her pickles and decide to switch Aunt Bee's pickles with store-bought pickles. The plan backfires when Bee decides to enter her pickles in the contest. Written by

After Andy, Barney, and Opie swap Aunt Bee's bad-tasting homemade pickles with some better-tasting store-bought pickles, they put the home canning jars that now contain store pickles back into the Taylor's kitchen cabinet. Barney then leaves the kitchen with a valise full of the bad homemade pickles in the store-bought jars. In the next scene, Barney is outside of town giving the motorist from Portland a home canning jar of Aunt Bee's bad pickles as a Safe Driver Award. He should be handing out the store jars from the valise, not home canning jars. See more
