Episode Summary

EDIT
Tired of Doris' nagging about having to beat their laundry on a rock in the creek, Fred buys a Grabwell washing machine from Mr. Haney. The boat motor in a barrel goes berzerk, spraying water and clothes everywhere before chasing the Ziffels out their front door. Oliver is more than happy to take their case and stick it to Haney in the courtroom.moreless

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (7)

      • Lisa describes to Oliver the effect used in movies to show that someone is dreaming. As she tells how "the screen kinda schwims", it does and Oliver actually sees it.

      • The court rules that Mr. Haney owes "Frederick L. Ziffel" $250 in damages.

      • Haney sells Lisa a Grandfather's clock for $300, claiming is once belonged to Lester Henderson, "one of Abe Lincoln's closet neighbors".

      • Arnold is again watching the exact same Western movie that is always showing on the Pixley TV station.

      • Oliver only wants to charge Mr. Ziffel $25 for his lawyer's fee. Fred offers him $5.50.

      • Fred Ziffel sees each of the opening credits every time he knocks on Oliver's front door.

      • The "Grabwell Washer" sold by Haney to the Ziffels is nothing but a boat motor attached to a large yellow metal drum. The "Grabwell Coffee Grinder" he sold to Sam Drucker looks suspiciously the same, as does the "Grabwell Bearcat" sportscar he sold to Newt Kiley. Lisa even ends up with a "Grabwell Whirlpool Bath".

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (Haney tries to pay his fine in merchandise)
        Oliver
        : Mr. Haney, that pile of junk isn't worth $8.
        Haney
        : To the unappraisable eye, yes. I had each and every one of these objects de art evaluated by an in-unpeachable source: the county tax assessor, or as we sometimes call him, Cousin Joe.

      • Oliver: (excitedly speaking before the judge) For years now, Mr. Haney has vicimized the people of this valley. This is not an insulated isodent. This is not the f--. I mean, an in...ice...iso. (trying another sentence) For many years, the poople of Heaterville--the pe...the poople...

      • Lisa: Here it is a week later.
        Oliver
        : A week later than what?
        Lisa
        : Well, when Mrs. Ziffel came over here to do her washing.
        Oliver
        : I know it's a week later. You don't have to march in here and announce that. Lisa: Well, that's how they always do it in the movies. Either that, or somebody come in carrying a sign which says, "Here it is a week later." Or a calendar falls apart for a week. Or somebody comes out and says, "That week sure went by fast."

      • Fred: (finding Doris at the Douglases' house) I got your note sayin' you was over here. You know, your handwritin' gettin' worse all the time. I could hardly read that.
        Doris: Well, I didn't write it. Arnold did!
        Oliver:(disbelieving) How could a pig write...

      • (As Fred Ziffel knocks on Oliver's front door, the "Executive Producer" credit appears briefly, then slides off as he looks towards it. He knocks again and the "Written By" credit does the same thing. When the "Directed By" credit appears, he looks toward it, and it also slides off. As he knocks, it appears again and finally he sees it.)
        Fred Ziffel: Gotcha!
        (Oliver opens the door)
        Oliver: Got who?
        Fred Ziffel: Them names.
        Oliver: What names?
