Episode Summary

EDIT
Lisa gets her first look at their dilipidated--and empty--farmhouse and is horrified. Oily Mr. Haney, who previously owned the dump, took everything with him, including the bathroom fixtures, and tries to resell them to Oliver. Eb, one of Haney's workers, is hired on as their farm hand. Lisa goes out to meet the locals, most of whom have entered a pool wagering on how long the Douglases will stay. Lisa is ready to immediately return to New York, but after a chat with Kate Bradley, she decides to give farm life a try.moreless

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Actor Lyle Talbot plays a character interested in the Douglases' penthouse. He would appear in two other episodes as a politician. In Season #5's "The Road", he plays actor-turned-senator Lyle Talbot. In Season #6's "King Oliver I", he's Governor Carstairs, but plays the same hammy character as in the previous episode.

      • Oliver falls through the kitchen floor and discovers the cellar underneath. However by episode #134/"Trapped", he will have completely forgotten about the cellar.

      • While showing Lisa the house, Oliver tells her it's over 100 years old.

      • Kate Bradley's big show business career, the one she gave up to be with her husband, was as a ticket-taker at the Pixley Bijou.

      • At the beginning of the episode, when Oliver pulls up to the farm, his car has a rear view mirror, but after he gets out, it doesn't.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • (Oliver demands Haney return his sinks and tub)
        Haney
        : Did you read your bill of sale?
        Oliver
        : I did!
        Haney: All it said was you got a house. That's what I sold you. A house.

      • Eb: Mr. Douglas, you wouldn't be needing a hired hand, would you?
        Oliver
        : No, no, I'm planning on farming this place myself.
        Eb: You ever done any farming?
        Oliver: (proudly) Oh, a little.
        Lisa: Dahling, don't be so modest. My husband had the biggest squash on Park Avenue!
