7:38 pm
then the meeting is closed. everybody give the growl. ( all growl ) okay, open the door. oh, don't forget the candle. i won't. hey, you guys! old man foster's comin'! hey, you guys, hurry up! you get out of here! get out of here, you kids! didn't i tell you to keep off of here?! doggone you! kids.

7:40 pm
not bad. not bad at all. i told him. i told him... ( coughing )
7:41 pm
boy, she really burned to the ground. how come you didn't call them volunteer fire brigade? they might have saved somethin'. well, there wasn't time. it was them kids. i tell you, it was them kids. i told you there'd be damage if they was allowed to hang around here. look, i seen 'em. i seen 'em comin' out of this barn and one minute later-- poof! there was a fire. you're sure of that? why, sheriff, are you makin' me out a liar? no. barney, we're gonna have to start an investigation. yeah, full-scale. now, we'll need names. who are these young'uns? well, i don't know their names, but i'd know 'em again if i saw 'em. i was tellin' you about one of 'em in your office just the other day, only you didn't believe me. don't start in on opie again. he's too little to be messin' around with the boys you're talkin' about. i think this calls for a lineup.
7:42 pm
no, barney. come on. well, you better catch them kids quick, sheriff. all right. yeah, i mean, because somebody's gotta pay for this damage. i still think that lineup's a good idea. well, if the kids are lined up, he'd have a chance... no, barney. it's still smolderin'. come on. man: celia, let go. i must leave for the airport. celia... celia: you mustn't go! i'll be anything, i'll do anything. just don't go to beverly. don't ever see her again. not see... my wife? ( gasps ) your wife? we were married at gretna green at 4:00 this morning. ( celia wails ) ( dramatic music plays ) oh, celia, celia, celia...
7:43 pm
( sighs ) andy: aunt bee! anybody home? andy, i'm sorry. i was upstairs and i just didn't notice the time. oh, that's all right, aunt bee. how is celia today? what? e gonna do about that poor woman and all of her suffering? oh, stop it. do you reckon she'll ever find true happiness? that brighter tomorrow, that stairway to the stars? oh, i just worry so much about her. what's this? hmm? this here. oh, i found that in opie's room. you give him that? what in the world is it?
7:44 pm
why, is something the matter? there was a fire out at jubal foster's today. there was? that's right, and he claims he saw opie and some other young'uns foolin' around up there. oh, andy, you don't think...? where's opie? well, he was out in the back playing a while ago. opie, you out there? yeah, paw.
7:45 pm
7:46 pm
your aunt bee found this candle and these matches in your room. suppose you tell us about 'em. i got an explanation. that's fine. let's hear it.
7:47 pm
you know you ain't allowed outside after dark. well... when i am allowed, i want to be ready. uh-huh. how come that candle's half burnt? i been practicing, so when i'm ready... i'll be ready. ( sighs ) well, let's see if we can get at this another way. did you know there was a fire today at jubal foster's? that's right-- his barn burned to the ground and he claims a gang of boys are responsible 'cause they been hangin' around there a lot lately. what i want to know is were you there and did you start that fire? gosh, paw, i didn't start any fire. were you at jubal foster's today? that club you told me you belong to-- is that where they meet? at jubal foster's? and were you there? i can't tell you nothing about that, paw.
7:48 pm
's right about what he told me. i sure must've looked foolish standing there defending you. get on up to your room. i didn't start any fire, paw. i didn't. go on. you do believe him, don't you? aunt bee, that boy's been playing with matches say your prayers? mm-hmm. good. you know, i got to go up at jubal foster's tomorrow. you do? yep. you know what i got to go up there for? i got to go up there
7:49 pm
see, i'm responsible for any damage that you might've caused. but, paw, i told you-- i didn't start that fire. i know, you told me that. there's one other thing that i want to get clear, though. now, i'm gonna ask you one more time, no beatin' around the bush, and i want a straight answer. were you at jubal foster's the day his barn burned down? were you? yes, paw. you're looking at the man that's gonna have to pay for that barn.
7:50 pm
7:51 pm
t that started the fire? no, but i'm here to make good on that barn. oh, so you're finally willing to admit that it was your own boy that done it, huh? i didn't say that. you don't have to be so happy about it, jubal. all right... how much you figure the loss to be? you, uh... you're gonna pay for the whole thing yourself, huh? i said i would. how much? well, uh, you know, uh, i, uh, i suffered a big loss here. how much, jubal? well, let's see, i guess it must be like, uh, two, three hundred dollars for materials. yeah. ain't only the lumber. i got to replace the windows and got to get shingles for the roof. then, of course, there's labor. now, come on, jubal, give me a figure, so i can write you a check.
7:52 pm
what do you need to build a new barn? it's just the barn i'm paying for, you know, not a house. well, sheriff, i figure about, uh... $450 ought to cover it. all right, jubal, $450 it is. uh, now, just a minute, sheriff. on second thought, maybe, uh, $450 won't cover it. all right, what will? well, i mean, you know, i left out a few items. andy? just a second, barney. what items? it wasn't only the barn that burned down, there was the contents, too. an-andy... just a second, barney. what are the contents, and how much? well, let's see, i had my wheelbarrow in there... yeah. and my tools... yep. and i had quite a bit of hay. hay. must've had about a hundred bushels of corn.
7:53 pm
there and i guess maybe, oh, two, three gallons of paint. i figure that ought to come to... about two, three hundred. andy. what is it, barney? hi. i'm trying to tell you something. you're trying to what? i'm trying to tell you something that's very important. wait a minute. maybe you won't have to tell me. jubal foster, you're under arrest. huh? w-what for? running a still and setting fire to your own barn. a still? why, you must be crazy. jubal... look, i told you about them kids. i mean, what still? jubal... jubal... jubal, jubal, jubal... ju... bal. that must be what my deputy discovered accidentally. accidentally-- that's right. well, what else would you be doing
7:54 pm
ain't that the finest way for a fire to really spread every which way? when it hits that alcohol? ( makes explosion sound ) congratulations, deputy fife, on an outstanding job of detective work. let's take the prisoner in. okay. and all the time i thought you didn't trust me enough to tell me the truth about that fire. turns out i was the one didn't trust you. i apologize for that. will you forgive me? sure. good. police officer ought to know better than that. person is innocent till he's proven guilty. now, i pronounced you guilty
7:55 pm
