Aunt Bee has been working really hard lately and Andy is wondering if it all just isn't too much for her when a solution presents itself in the form of Malcolm Merriweather, the traveling Englishman who had visited Mayberry the year before. Malcolm has worked as a cook and valet so Andy hires him to work around the house and give Aunt Bee a break. He effortlessly keeps the house clean, takes care of Opie and cooks wonderful meals. Everyone is enjoying it except for Aunt Bee, who feels useless and unneeded. Malcolm soon realizes the problem and decides to set things right.
