Plot Overview

While Barney is on vacation in Raleigh, Andy needs to find someone to fill as a temporary deputy. When Andy himself has to go to a sheriff safety conference for a few days. Nobody is available, so he is stuck with Goober. Goober doesn't take the job seriously (still working at the filling station). It gets so bad that Goober begins to work on cars at the sheriff's office and even ends up completely dismantling a car right inside the courthouse.
