    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Thirty years earlier, $7000 was budgeted for paving the road. The cost now is $22 million.

      • For lunch, Lisa prepares cold cuts by heating them in the oven and then placing them in the refrigerator.

      • Lisa points out that whenever Oliver refers to "clodheads", he end up complaining at the county seat. When he talks about "malletheads", he goes to the state capital. Those "otherheads" means the White House.

      • So that Big Joe Haney will know that Eustace Haney sent him, Oliver should use the password, "A mustard with a hot dog on it".

      • The state bought Mr. Ziffle's house thirty years ago for $150. It's now worth $15,000.

      • Lisa thinks their senator is a famous actor. Yes, he tells her he's Lyle Talbot. She doesn't know him. Mr. Talbot was a prolific actor who made almost 200 films and was a founder of the Screen Actor's Guild.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Eb: Mr. Douglas, guess what? The town's taking up a collection for you for gettin' the road paved!
        Oliver: They are?
        Eb: Yeah! They're goin' around to all the farms in the valley collectin' chicken feathers! And Mr. Ziffel's donatin' the tar!
        Oliver
        : Tar and feathers?
        Lisa
        : Isn't that nice?
        Oliver
        : What's--
        Eb
        : It's the only thing they could think of since Mr. Edmund left town. He was the only one who knew how to make a hangman's knot.

      • Driver: (to Lisa, who's lying behind the bulldozer) Lady, get up!
        Fred
        : Yeah, Mrs. Douglas. You could get hurt!
        Doris
        : (lying in front of the bulldozer) Well, what about me?
        Fred: Lie down, Doris!

      • Oliver: (to Fred, after visiting their Senator about their road) Why should this turn out badly?
        Fred
        : Every time you put your two cents in, it costs us four.

      • Oliver: Senator, we live in Hooterville and we need your help.
        Senator Talbot: If you live in Hooterville, you do need help.
