After railing at Andy and Opie for making a mess of the living room, Aunt Bee gets a long distance call from Mt. Pilot. Cousin Edgar's wife Maude has a problem with her "versitis" and is going to be off of her feet for a while, and they need Aunt Bee to come and help around the house while she's ailing. That means leaving Andy and Opie home alone where, Bee fears, they won't be able to get along without her. Getting ready for her trip, she fusses around about all the things that need doing while she's away and, several times, changes her mind about going, but go she does. Andy and Opie determine to be good housekeepers while she's gone, but being a little lax in the cleaning department, they quickly fall back into the same sloven routine as before. The next morning when Aunt Bee calls to say she'll be returning early on the afternoon bus, Andy panics, and he and Opie quickly clean up the house. Happy with the job they've done, it suddenly occurs to Andy that cleaning up was a mistake....

Yeah, this place looks neat as a pin.
Sure does, Pa.
Makes you feel good, don't it? Kind of a warm feelin' right in the middle of your stomach, lightness around your heart, your head two or three feet above your shoulders. You know why you're feelin' that way, don't you, boy?
'Cause I'm pooped.
