Aunt Bee is troubled that a friend has just died. She is feeling vulnerable (and afraid) because of her age. A traveling salesman (Colonel Harvey) comes to town selling an elixir that will “cure all that ails ya.” She purchases two bottles, as do many of the town’s people, only to find she’s been swindled. Andy and Barney see through Colonel Harvey’s scheme and catch him, thus preventing further humiliation of the town’s people.
