  • Episode Description
  • Because of his supposed net worth, Shorty is dating four of the secretaries from the bank. This does not please Granny though, since Shorty was out all night. Drysdale learns that Shorty only deposited eleven hundred dollars and still wants to get his “big” money. He arranges for a casino near the pool, where Shorty and Granny always win. But Drysdale learns that Shorty's "big" money is not in hundreds of millions, just hundreds. He tells the girls just as Shorty is about to tell them his weakness. When they find out he isn’t rich, Shorty tells them his weakness is checkers, and the upset secretaries dump him into the pool. Jed asks what happened, and Shorty, thinking what he told them is the reason, tells him never admit to a city woman that he plays checkers.moreless

    Trivia (1)

    • Granny seems to be enjoying playing the slot machines down at the swimming pool winning nickels from the slots. However, in the episode Jed, the Bachelor, where Granny goes to Las Vegas, she thinks that the slot machines that were being played by the people there were silly, and the people playing them were spending their money looking at pictures of sorry-looking fruit. Apparently, after five years in Beverly Hills after that, she learned better.
