Episode Summary

EDIT
It's planting time in Hooterville and Oliver is shocked that the locals make their crop choices based on aches and pains. Back on the farm, Oliver assigns every electrical device a number from one to seven in an effort to keep their creaky generator from blowing. All gadgets up to a total of seven can be plugged in at the same time, but Lisa can't quite grasp the concept.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Lisa has troubles in the kitchen: She washes the toaster in the dishwasher and heats the electric coffee pot on the hot stove.

    • Doris Ziffel used to have to convince strangers that she wasn't John Wayne.

    • Oliver assigns each electrical appliance a numeric value. The total number can not exceed 7 or the generator will blow: can opener=1; coffee pot, electric iron, mixer, and toaster each=2; frying pan=3; rottisserie=4; dishwasher=5; washing machine, refrigerator, and freezer each = 6.

    • The locals base their crop choices on their wives' aches and pains. Since Doris Ziffle is complaing of lumbago, they're planting corn. Swollen ankles mean carrots, cranky spells mean soybeans, cold means potatos, a headache dictates asparagus and head knots mean wheat.
