NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Plot Overview

After watching Andy fix up Opie's scraped knee, Barney decides the time has come for the Sheriff to take a wife. Andy asks him - actually begs him - not to interfere with his life but Barney just can't help himself. His first trick is to invite all of the single women to Andy's house so that Andy can look them all over. Andy won't hear of it and has Barney ask them to leave. The next trick is to arrange a dinner at Thelma Lou's for Andy and Helen Crump, Opie's teacher. Chatting before dinner, Barney decides Helen's not suitable when she says she can't cook and won't be quitting her teaching job should she ever marry. Barney wants to keep looking but Andy and Helen hit it off pretty well and have a date for the next night. Barney has other ideas.
