Episode Summary

EDIT

With minimal help from Eb, a stressed Oliver begins planting his corn crop. Lisa tries to be a useful farm wife by making dreadful lemonade which Oliver pours out onto the ground. The next morning at that spot, he finds a giant cornstalk that reaches into the clouds. At the top of the stalk there's a Jolly Green Giant who bellows "Ho, Ho, Ho" and drops down creamed corn, both in the can and by the bucketful.

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (3)

      • In this episode, the opening credits appear as the Douglases are trying to go to sleep. Each time Lisa turns off the light, another pops up on the dark screen.

      • More cooking mistakes from Lisa. She makes Oliver and Eb lemonade that tastes like kerosene and liverwurst and grape jelly sandwiches with mayonnaise and ketchup.

      • Mr. Haney offers Oliver the planting services of Agnes Cudahy, "the last of the authentic seed spitters." She can accurately spit seeds into two furrows at the same time.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Sam Drucker: (Lisa asks if he was able to order any caviar) No, but they told me they were coming out with a do it yourself caviar kit.
        Oliver: A caviar kit?
        Sam Drucker: Yeah, you cook up a box of tapioca and you stir in some licorice for color, and then add some sardine oil for the fish taste.
        Lisa: Order me one of those!

      • Oliver: (delivering patriotic speech in bed while fife plays "Yankee Doodle" on soundtrack) Yes, I'm tired. But it's a proud tiredness. An American tiredness!
        Lisa: (kisses him) Goodnight Oliver.
        Oliver
        : Good night dear.
        Lisa: (turns the light off, then back on again) Oliver? Would you please tell the fellow to stop playing the fife. I want to go to sleep.
