With the recent death of a friend, Aunt Bee is feeling particularly blue. She is feeling her age and is listless and without energy. On her way home one day, she sees a handsome man hawking his Colonel Harvey's Elixir as a tonic that will fix any ailment. She buys two bottles and by the time Andy gets home later that day, she is singing and happy. There's seems to be little they can do about Colonel Harvey. His vendor's permit is in order and he's doesn't seem to be breaking any laws. Until they have the elixir analyzed that is and find that it is in fact 85% alcohol and the reason Aunt Bee and her friends feel so good is because they are gassed.

Andy, I hate to say this, but...
You don't have to.
If it was anybody else, I'd say she was tiddly!
If it was anybody else, you'd be right. But she won't even let a fruitcake in the house, on account of a brother she had.
