Season 6 Episode 23

The Hole in the Porch

Aired Unknown Mar 02, 1971 on CBS

Episode Recap

While fixing a leaky sink pipe, Oliver is reminded that he needs to fix other things around the place, like the loose board on the front porch. After checking it out, he determines it is dry-rotted and needs to be replaced. He places a sturdier board on top of it, so no one will get hurt, until he can repair it. Mr. Kimball arrives and removes the sturdy board, sighting it as a tripping danger. He immediately falls into a hole up to his knee.
The injured Kimball recuperates at the Douglas bedroom. Lisa bandages his foot while he's still wearing his shoe and Hank's admirer Ralph arrives to play nurse for her "Hankie". The patient becomes annoying by blowing his kazoo when he needs Oliver or Lisa. Mr. Haney, representing Hank, tries to get Oliver to sign an out of court settlement in Kimball's favor for $50,000; refusing, irate Oliver throws Haney out.
Since the patient has taken over Oliver's bed, the Douglases are forced to sleep in the barn. The next morning, Ralph tries to brighten Hank's spirits by having his kazoo band play for him.
Oliver has now had enough and heads to the nearest saloon.
