  • Episode Description
  • Granny has come up with a new way to split Elly and Mark up and has called Shorty Kellems to help her do so. When Shorty arrives, she tells Mark that Shorty used to be Elly’s fiancé and wants revenge on Mark, but her story fails. At this time, Drysdale is trying to tell Jed that oceanography is a bad idea, but doesn’t succeed and ends up saying Miss Jane said it. After this, he comes up with a new plan. Back at the mansion, Granny is still trying to make Mark believe Elly and Shorty love each other, and gets the two to kiss. Mark sees this, as Granny planned, and tells Shorty that Jed traded Elly to Shorty for a mule. Mark questions Jed about this, and Jed and Elly learn Granny made up this story. Granny walks away, and Drysdale visits the mansion with Miss Jane in a straight jacket, telling Jed he taking out his money did this. Jed tears up his check. Meanwhile, Shorty wants to see Mark as half-man/half frog. But at the pool, he sees the seal Elly and Jed are trying to hide, before visiting Mark. Granny heads down to visit Shorty, and Jed and Elly unsuccessfully try to stop her. She sees the seal, and thinks it is Shorty.moreless

    • (Granny is telling Mark about Elly and Shorty’s old romance) Granny: It was her Pa that promised her hand. Mark: When she was twelve? Granny: Yeah. Folks was beginning to call her a old maid. Mark: Well, they get married early back in the hills, but couldn’t her father find someone younger and maybe better looking? Granny: Mark, you gotta understand that Jed was poor as a church mouse in them days. Mr. Kellems was wealthy. He offered Jed a mule. Mark: A mule?! For his only daughter?! Granny: The way Jed felt about it, he wasn’t losin’ a daughter; he was gaining a mule!
