PlotEdit

Barney's awkward cousin visits and makes a mess of everything he tries. When Andy finds something that Virgil is good at, he finds a way to teach him self-confidence.

SummaryEdit

Barney's cousin Virgil, has newly arrived from New Jersey. Not the brightest bulb in the basket, Virgil can't seem to do anything right, messing up even the smallest and easiest of chores. Andy discovers that Virgil has a latent talent which compensates for his chronic clumsiness.

At the end of the episode, Virgil has to pick a lock to open the cell door - Andy looks away so that Virgil can work alone; the plan works. He is able to open the cell door.

Trivia/NotesEdit
