  • Episode Description
  • Elly gets a job as a secretary at Mr. Drysdale's bank to ensure proper treatment of the girls working there. But Granny makes her look like a flapper and teaches her wiggle walking, eye rolling, and lap setting. Drysdale throws her out, but after he realizes it is his largest depositor's daughter, brings her back. After Elly gets Drysdale to give Jane a raise, Drysdale gets revenge on his secretary by having her landlord, Phinney, trash her apartment and up her rent by doubling and tripling it. Elly moves in with Jane to appear more as a secretary and a working girl. When Phinney catches the Clampetts and Miss Jane in there, he has them arrested. As soon as Drysdale finds out who has been thrown in jail, he gets them out and makes Phinney the building's janitor.moreless
