  • Episode Description
  • Eb is suddenly smitten with with Betty Jo Bradley and asks Oliver for some fatherly advice on romance. Recalling how his first evening out with Lisa cost him a fortune, Oliver advises Eb to make all of their evening's plans. That's just what Eb does--incorrectly--causing Billy Jo to cancel their date.

    • Lisa : That's why I love you. You're always hollering, but you have a soft spot in your head.
      Oliver
      : Heart.
      Lisa: There, too.

    • Eb: (to Oliver and Lisa) Gees! Sometimes it's hard for me to realize the two of you are as old as you are!

    • Eb: (after taking Oliver's dating advice too far) A fine father you are!
      Oliver
      : I'm not your father!
      Eb
      : I'm glad! The kind of advice you give!

    • Lisa: (discussing Betty Jo) She's beautiful. Eb: Yeah, she's got the kind of face that would make any man forget his sardines.

    Notes (1)

    • Betty Jo was a regular character on Petticoat Junction, from which Green Acres was a spin-off.

    Trivia (6)

    • At the restaurant, every time Oliver says the word "champagne", a cork pops and a bottle of champagne is brought to him and Lisa.

    • Eb actually enters through the Douglases' closet twice and doesn't toss the door onto the floor.

    • During his dance lesson from Oliver, Eb imagines himself a great tap dancer and a Flamenco dancer.

    • Oliver claims Lisa took him to a "clip joint" restaurant on their first date, the Liechtenstein Luau. The waiter opened three bottles of champagne at $28 a pop.

    • Lisa has removed the labels from all of her canned goods. When you open a can, you get either chili con carne or dog food.
