    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Hey Grandpa, What's for Supper? Here's what's on the menu tonight:
        Well, would you like to have some good mutten stew? You can, and lots of mint jelly too. Fresh hot biscuits, baked to a tee, and apple cider for you and me.

      • Hee Haw salutes Turkey Ridge SD population 12, and Beefhide KY, population 753.

    • QUOTES (13)

      • (At the joke fence)
        Sunshine: I crossed IBM and LSD.
        Crowd: What'd ya get?
        Sunshine: A business trip.

      • Gunilla: Gordie, my mother always told me that when I was with a feller, I should say "no" to everything.
        Gordie: Do you mind if I give you a kiss?
        Gunilla: No.
        Gordie: Tell your mama I said "thank you".

      • Johnny Bench: I can hold 7 baseballs in one hand.
        Clem (Gordie): Boy, that's a good trick. Let me see you do it.
        Johnny: (holding 7 baseballs) Watch this.
        Clem: Hey, you think you could help me collect the eggs?

      • Buck: You'll probably never believe that lead can be changed into gold. Just wait till you get a bill from the plumber.

      • Samuel B. Sternwheeler (Gordie): I'll never forget the first house I ever owned. I furnished the entire 3 rooms for 8 dollars, and that's the truth. I took 7 dollars and spent it on gas, then went around collecting my friends old cast away furniture.
        Man: What about the 8th dollar?
        Samuel B. Sternwheeler: Oh, I kept it! (He gets smacked in the face with a rubber chicken)

      • (At the joke fence)
        Sherry: Did you hear about the neurotic bloodhound?
        Crowd: No, what happened?
        Sherry: He thought people were following him.

      • (During "Pfft You Was Gone", Archie sings the following:)
        Your pa was a drinker, and it made him look awful.
        Your poor old mother, the looks he would give her.
        Bags under his eyes, I remember he looked like,
        a butcher peeking over 2 pounds of wet liver.

      • (The Culhanes are playing Bridge)
        Lulu: Your bid Grandpa.
        Grandpa: I pass.
        Clem (Gordie): I pass.
        Junior: Pass.
        Lulu: And I pass.
        (they all throw the cards behind them. Junior pulls out some more cards from his pocket.)
        Junior: Somebody better bid, pretty soon, or we're gonna run out of cards.

      • Cathy: Minnie, is it right to marry a man for his money?
        Minnie: Well, maybe not, but sometimes that's the only way you can get it!

      • Gordie: Yep, I always do my hardest chore before breakfast.
        Grandpa: What's that?
        Gordie: Gettin' out of bed.

      • (During "Pickin' and Grinnin'")
        Roy: Do you mean to tell me that you don't have any life insurance at all?
        Buck: Right. When I die, I want it to be a sad day for everybody!

      • Buck: Our "Pickin' and Grinnin'" spot is sure a show stopper.
        Roy: Well, I'll admit, I don't know if we stop it, but we sure slow the show down a bit.

      • Minnie Pearl: Howdee. The town I grew up in was so small, it was located between the 2nd and 3rd signs of a Burma Shave commercial.

    • NOTES (3)

      • This episode is available on DVD as volume 4 from Time Life's "The Hee-Haw Collection".

      • Lulu Roman appears uncredited in "The Culhanes" sketch, and in the background of several other sketches. Bakersfield Brass is amongst the gang during the song "Get Along Home, Cindy".

      • The Sound Generation, who performed with Roy Clark on the song "Take Me Home, Country Roads", were a musical group consisting of students who attended John Brown University in the 60's and 70's.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Mission: Impossible
        The Samuel B. Sternwheeler sketch where he gets the tape recorder that self destructs in 5 seconds is a parody of "this message will self destruct", which was how each mission started out on the show Mission: Impossible.
