Storyline

When Otis shows up drunker than he has ever been - riding a cow no less - Barney decides that he will take it upon himself to try and reform Mayberry's town drunk. Andy begs him not to, but Barney has recently read a article about psychology and is convinced that he's the man for the job. Soon he is administering tests and asking Otis all kinds of questions but to no avail. When they find him drunk yet again, Barney feels betrayed and actually handcuffs Otis and runs him in. Insulted, Otis decides that he's going to take his business elsewhere and use a different jail to sleep it off. Andy and Barney have to travel to Mount Pilot to try and talk him into returning to Mayberry. Written by garykmcd
