I would bet it was Ernest T Bass that threw that extra rock!
I think I figured out how Earnest T was escaping from jail all the time in 'Earnest T Joins the Army'
When Barney was handing out rehabilitation craft kits to the Gordon boys in the jail back in 'Aunt Bee the Warden" one of em ended up making a pass-key with the metal craft kit. I bet Earnest T got hold of that key somehow and kept it in his shoe.
Nice deducing Franklin!
I have always wondered if Aunt Bea had to use a throat spray after talking in that 2nd octave voice!
It could be her voice is just more bell-like than we're accustomed to.
In "The Big House", in "Doc's" first escape, he does not wear his jacket. In his second escape, he puts it on before using the conveniently placed key on the peg, outside the door, to escape. Was there a sudden change in weather?
Have not worked one of those nutcrackers in perhaps 30 or 40 years! So I forgot. But I remember as a kid, bowls of nuts with a nutcracker on a table were quite common. My Aunt Emma had one. I would guess that I did not put the shells back in the bowl.
In the world I grew up in, it was a common thing to discard the nut shells back into the container. I witnessed it in several homes I was in.
