Storyline

After seeing Helen and Andy in the jewelry store together, Barney begins to tell everyone they are obviously engaged. They decide to throw a big party for them and Aunt Bee decides on the perfect gift -to redecorate Andy's room from top to bottom including putting in a canopy bed. They manage to get all of the work done in a single day. Of course, Barney has got it all wrong as usual and the happy couple isn't at all engaged. Written by garykmcd
