Gentleman Dan Caldwell is one of the most famous and notorious guests the Mayberry Jail has ever housed. It's doesn't take much for Gentleman Dan to not only charm his way into the good graces of an already smitten Barney, but Opie and Aunt Bee also. A master of charm, Dan is treated practically like royalty when he locked up. Andy, however, is none too trusting of Mayberry's guest. Of course, it's not long before Dan turns the tables on his new found friends in an attempt to escape. It's Andy's quick thinking that saves the day and keeps Caldwell behind bars.
