After Shorty and Gloria get married, everyone but the two of them wants the marriage annulled. Gloria decides she'd like to experience what her new life will be like, and Jed tells her that he'll show her. When he calls the mansion to tell them to put up the cabin, Granny thinks he got married as well. But when both "couples" come home, Granny, Jethro, and Elly learn that Shorty got married, but Elverna didn't, and Gloria got married, but Jed didn't, making Jethro and Granny believe both couples are in a Hollywood marriage. After everything is cleared up, Shorty gets locked back up in the cage and Gloria gets a first-hand experience of what farm life is like. Shorty tricks Jethro to let him out of the cage, and checks up on his new wife. However, Gloria is having no luck as a farm wife and decides to give it up. Shorty can't believe how much of a mess she looks, and when Elverna alerts the couple their marriage isn't valid, they decide to split. But Jed later finds Shorty in the cage, having locked himself in since Elverna was looking good to him.moreless

      • After all the stunts Shorty pulled to get out of marrying Elverna, you'd think she wouldn't want to marry Shorty anymore since it is obvious he no longer wants her.

      • Gloria mistakes a donkey for a cow, mostly because she is a "city woman." However, people in the city are familiar with farm animals. Did they do this to make it seem like Gloria really needed an adjustment?
