Episode Summary


Oliver has the bad idea of getting into the chicken raising business. Haney wants to sell him a ridiculous egg laying contraption, the Monroe brothers build a disastrous chicken coop, and Lisa wants to raise the chicks as human children. The serious trouble begins when the 1000 baby chicks arrive. The brooder stops working and the babies have to stay warm. Lisa's motherly instincts save the day.

    • Drucker and Lisa both watch the same soap opera, Tomorrow Will Be Brighter.

    • The Haney Egg Layin' Inducin' Machine has Vera, the chicken, lay an egg. It goes down a series of chutes, where it's candled. Then it triggers a bell, which cues Raul, the rooster, to pull a string that feeds Vera.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Sam Drucker: (tearfully recounting the trials of the heroine on the soap "Tomorrow Will Be Brighter") She could hardly read the letter she got from her boyfriend.
      Lisa: The jockey?
      Sam Drucker: No, no. The one who was sick all the time. He wrote her to tell her he was a'runnin' off with the lady druggist. He didn't really love her; it was the only way he could figure to get his medicines at a discount.
      Oliver: Mr. Drucker, if you don't mind, I'd like to order--
      Lisa: Just a minute. I want to find out what's going to happen to that poor woman.
      Sam Drucker: Oh, things are gonna get worse, much worse. Some NUT talked her into raisin' chickens!

    • Eb: [to Oliver] Hey, maybe you could borrow my brother's brooder. It used to be my mother's brooder, but she gave the brooder to my brother because my mother had another brooder, and I didn't have another brother who needed a brooder.
      Oliver: Are you finished?
      Eb: Yes sir. Unless you'd like to hear about my sister with the blister.

    • Drucker: (pitching Oliver on a chicken feeder) Fedder's Feeders are the leaders among feeders.

    • Ralph: (after Oliver storms off) Boy, precious is sure in a bad mood. He didn't even kiss me goodbye.

    • Oliver: I'm going to raise chickens.
      To be what?

    • Eb: (to Oliver, after he talks about rasing chickens) Everytime you think about doing something on the farm, it's the start of another catastrophe...

  • NOTES (0)


    • The sign on Mr. Haney's truck says "Haney Chicken Raising Equipment Company, member of the Fryers Club" TheFriars Clubis a private club in New York City famous for its risque celebrity roasts.

    • Haney says that Vera the chicken once skated like Sonja Henie (he pronounced it "high-knee"). She was a gold medal Olympic skater who later found fame in Hollywood films during the 1930s-40s.
