Opie Taylor Main Box 2014.jpg
Opie Taylor—

Opie's relationship with his "Pa" (Andy) provides plot material for many episodes. Andy sometimes misjudges Opie, suspecting him of being selfish and oblivious to the needs of the less fortunate. Andy then often discovers, to his chagrin, that Opie had been self-sacrificing and generous. For example, in one episode, Opie forfeits a grocery store delivery job to allow a boy with an ill father to replace him. In another episode, Opie uses his savings to buy a friend a winter coat after Andy lambastes him for contributing only three cents to a charity.
In the 1986 made-for-TV reunion movie Return to Mayberry, Ron Howard reprises his role as a now-adult Opie. The plot was driven by his father's return to see Opie's wife Eunice Taylor give birth to their first child.

Man in a Hurry—


"Man in a Hurry" Big businessman Malcolm Tucker has trouble getting his car to start and finds himself stuck outside of Mayberry on a Sunday. Walking into Mayberry, he finds everyone leaving the church. Reverend Tucker talks on the steps with Andy and Barney, saying he believed his message wasn't reaching Barney. Andy explains it was his own fault, he had Barney up all night on a chicken stake-out. Malcolm approaches and explains he needs help getting his car fixed so that he can get to Charlotte for business. After many unsuccessful attempts at getting out of Mayberry and getting his car fixed quickly, he grows more and more aggravated at how long the process of being in a 'hick town' is.
Eventually he grows warmer to the town, and as he is leaving, he makes the excuse his car isn't fully fixed - Andy realizes what he is doing and goes along with the farce... allowing Malcolm to enjoy a night's stay in Mayberry.
