  • Episode Description
  • It is Tonic Time, and Granny has made a small batch, which is enough for the family and a few friends. She also hopes that she can tonic a man for Elly May to marry. Though Elly may not have a husband in her future, Jane thinks she does. She thinks that Professor Biddle will propose to her, but he reveals all he wants her to do is hatch a condor egg. Granny heads to the bank to get Jane and Drysdale to give Dash Riprock some of her tonic. Jane realizes what this could do and gets Professor Biddle to drink a bottle of tonic. But Elly visits the bank, and a “toniced” Professor starts chasing her, following her home. Jane chases after him, trying to get her man back. Biddle does propose to Jane, and although she turns him down, they become the proud parents of a baby condor.moreless

    • (Professor Biddle just drinks some tonic, which he thinks is natural spring water) Biddle: Flock Master Hathaway? Jane: Yes? Biddle: Did I ever tell you that you look remarkably like a condor? Jane: That’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me. Biddle: I can believe that.

    • (Granny plans to give Dash Riprock some tonic so he’ll propose to Elly, saving her from being an old maid) Jed: Elly ain’t no old maid. Granny: Jed, when are you gonna get it through your head? When a girl passes fourteen, she’s an old maid. When she passes sixteen, she’s a spinster. And when she passes eighteen, ferget it!
