  • Episode Description
  • Granny and Elly arrive back home just as Jethro is going to head into the Army. Granny decides to give Jethro his physical examination so the Army doctors don’t touch him. Though, Granny’s medical tools consist of a hammer to test reflexes and a burning candle to examine his throat. She splints his busted knee and puts corks in his ear to keep the draft out of them. Jethro heads down to the recruiting office in that condition and limping. The Colonel thinks that Jethro is a real patriot, to want to serve in this condition, but the Army Psychiatrist believes that Jethro is a genius draft dodger. The Colonel and Psychiatrist ask to see his family, and he returns with his family in his Patton costume. After meeting the family they believe is fake, they believe that Jethro is a genius, hoping to draft him before the CIA does.moreless

    • (The Army Psych is trying to get Jethro to talk about Pearl his mother, while he thinks they mean Pearl the pig who the family wanted to take along) Psychiatrist: Jethro? Jethro: Yes sir? Psychiatrist: How do you feel about Pearl? Jethro: What’s there to feel? She’s a pig! Colonel Stark: Terrible thing to say boy! Jethro: Well it’s true.
