  • There's a girl at a flour mill in Springfield who knows about Hollywood parties....

    That seems to be the recurring joke this episode. Granny knows the stories extremely second hand through Elverna Bradshaw, Mrs. Hathaway has a cousin there and Dash Riprock has an aunt at the mill. I'd get the Season Three DVD of the series for this episode alone. We never hear just what those stories are, but it is quite obvious that there's something sinister about them. The main plot is about getting dash together with Elly, but Dash seems to have confused her with Hathaway. The confusion is a bit contrived; the dialogue awkwardly created to keep up the confusion than correct it, but it sure is funny to watch.
