With the jail full after the arrest of the four Gordon brothers for moonshining, Andy wonders what to do with Otis when he shows up after his weekly drunk. The Gordons are angry with Otis for having changed liquor suppliers, so leaving him with them is out of the question. Left with little choice, Andy takes Otis home with him to serve his sentence. Aunt Bee is a little disconcerted at first, but when Andy tells her that she's in charge of the prisoner, she takes to making him do chores around the house, like washing floors and windows, cutting the grass and chopping wood. Otis takes to calling her the Warden and has worked so hard that he swears off liquor.

Andy is shown with a cast on his hand, which is explained as having occurred while bringing the Gordon boys in, but the real reason has been the source of debate among fans for years. In reality, Griffith got a sprained wrist when he got angry on the set and put his hand through a wall. It can be seen in the next episode as well. See more
