A businessman's car breaks down two miles from Mayberry on a Sunday. He has a business appointment in Charlotte the next morning. He walks to town and finds it deserted until church lets out. The garage is also closed on Sunday. Gomer is working but can only pump gas and Wally refuses to repair the car until Monday. The stranger can't believe the pace of life in Mayberry and everyone's lack of urgency. Andy tries to talk him into spending the night and getting the car fixed on Monday. He will hear of no such thing...at first.

In the scene where Andy and Mr. Tucker first talk with Gomer at Wally's Service Station about repairing Tucker's car, the film sets for "The Real McCoys" are clearly visible in the background behind Gomer as he stands by the gas pump. These sets were later demolished so the Quonset hut sets for "Gomer Pyle USMC" could be built. See more
