Has anyone ever noticed that Aunt Bee usually never eats anything when serving meals. It seems when she sits down and picks up her fork, she thinks of something and gets up. She is either serving or doing other things while others are eating.

Technically, if MeTV REALLY wanted to show how TAGS began, they should show that famous Danny Thomas episode where Andy arrests him! You have that episode MeTV, so why not?
