Episode Summary

EDIT

Drucker's store doesn't sell jam since all the Hooterville women make their own. Oliver encourages the reluctant Lisa to learn how to make preserves from Doris Ziffel since her's are the best in the valley. Lisa submits, citing the Hungarian Parliament's "Big Dumb Law of 1924" which stated, "All Hungarian women had to do whatever their husbands wanted them to do, no matter how dumb it was." With Doris' help, Lisa easily makes dozens of jars of "homemade" jam. Oliver is impressed until he learns Mrs. Ziffel's secret.

    • Haney congratulates Oliver on recognizing a real monstrosity. The item on his truck was made by Fettuccini Monstrosity, the last of the great bathtub makers.

    • According to Lisa, the Hungarian Parliament's "Big Dumb Law of 1924" stated that all Hungarian women had to do whatever their husbands wanted them to do, no matter how dumb it was.

    • Lisa has numerous cooking disasters in this episode. To make jam, she shaves the peaches with Oliver's electric razor, then stomps them with her bare feet. When she makes toast, she puts bread slices in a toaster, then puts the toaster in the oven.

    • Hank Kimball retools his car horn to sound the chimes of a grandfather clock. He has to slam the dashboard to play the final note.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Eb: (explaining how he carried both ends of a ladder) I saw Laurel and Hardy do this trick on the late, late show. I don't know how they did it, but it sure works good.

    • Lisa: (interrupting Oliver's latest speech) Oliver, will you talk quieter. Mr. Ziffel can't hear the fife.
