Andy agrees to help the pretty new county nurse, Mary Simpson, talk farmer Rafe Hollister into taking his tetanus shot. Rafe is a hard working man who, he says, has never been sick and has never had to see a doctor. Mary had promised her bosses that she would have a 100% success rate in inoculations, so getting Rafe on board is important to her. It's important for Andy as well as he quite likes Mary and would like to see more of her. They do finally get Rafe on board, but in reviewing her list, she realizes that there is one other individual who hasn't had his shot yet: Barney!
Did You Know?
Rafe Hollister's farm is the same farm as Flint & Frankie's farm in season one's "Ellie Saves a Female". See more
In the opening scene, there's a blank space in the lower left corner of the bulletin board with police notices overlapping everywhere else. After Mary leaves, a flyer appears in the blank space, not overlapping any of the other notices. See more
I ain't never been to the doctor in my life.
When I's born, I had my mama, and when I die, I'll have the undertaker. I don't see no sense in clutterin' things up in between.
