Storyline

Briscoe Darling comes to town seeking the sheriff's help to solve a problem with Ernest T Bass, who has decided to court Briscoe's daughter Charlene and is making a pest of himself by throwing rocks through the windows of the Darling's cabin to get her attention. Charlene is already married to Dud Wash but Ernest T doesn't recognize the marriage because it wasn't performed by a preacher. Reluctantly, Andy agrees to help out and he and Barney make the long drive up to the mountains the next day. Ernest T is not impressed by the lawmen and continues breaking windows. Andy decides the best solution is another wedding, this time with the circuit preacher presiding. When Ernest T threatens to kidnap the bride Andy dresses Barney up as a decoy and Dud and Charlene are remarried while Ernest T is trying to figure out who Barney is. In the end Dud and Ernest T shake hands and they all celebrate at the cabin. Written by bobbymaxwell
