Town drunk Otis comes in for his weekly night in jail and is insistent that they wake him up a 8 a.m. the next morning. They do so and he will only tell them he's been working a second job and saving his money to acquire the one thing he has always wanted but has never had. When he shows up later that day with his new car, Barney is convinced that they have a new menace in town. Andy thinks Otis is a little more responsible than that but gives Barney the okay to follow him and see what he wants. When they see him pass out behind the wheel, they put him in jail and devise an elaborate scheme to get his to swear off driving. Written by

While Barney is giving Otis his "driving test" with toy cars, it is established that the wall behind the sheriff's desk is to the west. Earlier in the episode, when Otis walks down the sidewalk at 8am toward what must be the east, away from the sheriff's office, the sun is ahead of him, as it should be at that time of day. (Of course, the interior of the office set is on a soundstage, so any light coming through the windows is artificially produced.) See more
When Andy goes to Otis' cell to bring him a cup of water, he retrieves the cell keys from the wall between the cells where they are usually kept, opens the cell door and leaves the keys in the door. After giving Otis the water, he shuts the cell door, leaving the keys in it. He then returns to the back office. When Otis calls Andy again, this time implying a request for Andy to quote him 'Jack and the Beanstalk', Andy walks from the back office to the cell door, and again reaches up to the place on the wall where the keys are usually kept, opening the cell door with them.
