Emmet's in a bit of a quandary trying to decide what to get his wife Martha for their 25th wedding anniversary. He's asking around for ideas and when he hears that she wants a mink coat, he just doesn't understand why she would want something so extravagant or how he could possibility afford it. When Flora the waitress overhears Emmett talking about it in the diner, she tells him that a good friend in Mount Pilot could sell it to him wholesale. He tells Martha he's going out with the boys for the evening but she sees Flora getting into his car she assumes the worse. To complicate things even further, when Emmett gets to the furrier he realizes that he can't afford the coat even at wholesale prices but by then, Martha thinks she's getting the coat after all and he has to scramble.

Where the heck has she been?
17 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

After a lengthy absence, Flora finally pops up again in town, still toiling away at the diner and apparently no longer Goober's girlfriend. Again we get another awkward scene involving Emmett and Martha and money. They even talk about-gasp!-death, and on a sitcom yet. Mrs. Pendleton is back, and back in Andy's good graces despite having caused Helen much embarrassment over gossip and innuendo in an earlier episode. The funniest moment of this story, and one of the best double takes of all eight seasons, belongs to Opie, who encounters Martha and Mrs. P sitting at the kitchen table with an open bottle of some kind of strong drink between them. You have to hope the local theater is having a film festival and not hanging its hopes on keeping young Mayberrians from flocking to Mt. Pilot by showing a Greer Garson movie. The idea that Flora would fall for somebody who, let's face it, isn't exactly Cary Grant and who drives the second dullest car in town after Howard's is laughable. But as Martha says it's not unusual for men Emmett's age to risk one last fling to try to recapture some of their fleeting youth. He might not be furrier to the stars, but Ronnie Schell is perfect as the discount merchant of mink. I especially like the way he blows on the skins while clamping down on a stogie. Another funny exchange between Opie and Andy about headcolds and a reckless Emmett who gets carried away by his own imagined generosity round out a good, solid final season episode.
