  • Episode Description
  • Drysdale is trying to get his money back, while Jed is trying to prevent him from doing so. And Jethro is trying to come up with a way to beat the smog problem. Drysdale sends Jane over to get the money, posing as a guard. When Jed doesn't give it to him, Drysdale tells him what he's got is a drop in the bucket, and only the President could really do anything. Jed returns the money and says he plans to give all his money to the President. To help out, Jethro comes up with the electric car, after inventing the smog-causing steam car, and says he can drive them to D.C. in it. Drysdale arranges a comic to pose as the President over the phone to keep them from giving their money away, telling him Jed thinks he is worth 95 million. Rich Little, posing as Nixon, tells them to do what the man in the white coat says. When a milkman at the mansion reads a note Granny left and tells Jethro the message says they're going to Washington, the Clampetts get on a plane, and Drysdale is too late to stop them. They tell the stewardess about their plans when they meet Mr. President, which sound outrageous, and when Jed asks her how high they are flying, she tells them a lot higher than the plane.moreless

    • (The Clampetts tell the stewardess about their plans for Washington, meeting the President and how they planned to go in the electric car, but didn’t have a 3,000 mile cord) Jed: Young lady, how high would ya say we’re flyin’? Stewardess: A lot higher than the plane.

    • Jed: This fellow’s gonna drill a tunnel through the San Bernardino Mountains, put in a great big fan, and draw all the smog out of Los Angeles. Drysdale: Why, that’s a preposterous idea. Jed: Yeah. We like it too.

    • Jethro: Granny, I’m gonna fight smog. Granny: How? Jethro: I don’t know, but Uncle Jed says it takes brains and money. Betwixt us, we’s all set. Granny: You got money, have ya?

    • Jed: Jethro, I just talked to the President, and we won’t be drivin’ to Washington in your electric car. Jethro: It’s just as well Uncle Jed. I never found an extension cord long enough to get us there.

    • (Drysdale is trying to get the money back in his bank) Drysdale: But it’s not safe here! Jed: It was till you showed up.
