  • Episode Description
  • Oliver and Lisa give Eb and his future bride two acres to build a house on. Eb, however, has only saved $538 for the task. He comes up with several schemes to raise a down payment for a bank loan; he rents out the Douglas' farm as a trailer park, a trash dump, and a bed and breakfast. Oliver hits the roof, but he was irritated to start with. He'd endured dinner with Eb's future in-laws, the Wheelers, who kept accusing him of being a lush.moreless

    • Mr. Wheeler: Would you like a drink?
      Oliver:
      Yes, I'd love one.
      Mr. Wheeler:
      We don't keep liquor in the house. We're teetotalers.
      Oliver:
      Well, then why did you--
      Mr. Wheeler:
      You drink much?
      Oliver:
      Yes, I like a drink before dinner.
      Mr. Wheeler:
      How about after dinner?
      Oliver:
      Once in a while.
      Mr. Wheeler: During dinner?
      Oliver: Well--
      Mr. Wheeler: You drink pretty good. Ever thought about trying A.A.?

    • Eb: (Haney contradicts his sign by asking Eb for collateral) It says right there that collateral is a dirty word.
      Haney: Well, my company is rated X.

    • Oliver: (after Joe dumps garbage in his front yard) Get this stuff out of here! This is not a dump!
      Joe: Looks like one to me.

    Notes (2)

    • Lisa is cooking "onions hotcakes" for dinner, "onions hotcakes."

    • The Shady Rest Hotel set (from the show this series was spun off from, Petticoat Junction) is re-dressed as the Wheeler's homestead.

    Trivia (4)

    • Lisa's hen Sheila and Drucker's cat both barks. She learned it from Mr. Wheeler's dog.

    • Eb sells his two acres to Mr. Dooley, who converts it into "Dooley's Dump". Unfortunately, the sign points to the Douglases' front yard.

    • To build their house, Eb has $538: $500 from Darlene's father and the $38 he's saved.

    • Eb says no to "Haney Loan Service (where collateral is a dirty word)".
