PlotEdit

A pickpocket is made guest of honor at a Mayberry celebration.

SummaryEdit

A recently released convict drives into Mayberry city limits at exactly the same time when the town is finding their "Guest of Honor". Unaware that he is a pick-pocket, they bring him into town, giving him a welcoming parade and even the keys to the city. Eventually, Andy and others realize their watches are missing, and Andy is one of the first to realize that their Guest of Honor isn't all he's cracked up to be.

Trivia/NotesEdit

  • In a hilarious speech to the new deputies, Barney gets himself (and them) so fired up with emotion that even mild-mannered Floyd Lawson is screaming at the top of his lungs to Nip it. Don Knotts recalled that he "laughed so hard at Howard McNear's screaming, the entire scene had to be reshot 20 times.You can also see Andy covering his smile and laugh.
  • This is the first of only forty episodes where Opie doesn't appear.
  • In the scene where Barney's gun goes off as he is talking to the newly sworn deputies, you can see the outline of his one special bullet in his shirt pocket. Extra bullet put in the gun for the laugh.

QuotesEdit

  • Barney: "Alright three…Watch it! Now listen men, and listen good. There’s liable to be trouble out there today. We’re liable to have folks among us who are here for more than just a good time if you know what I mean? Now the minute there looks like there’s gonna be trouble, we got to NIP IT! Nip it in the Bud! You got that? Let’s hear it?”


  • Barney: "That's exactly the same idea I had!"
