Episode Summary

EDIT
Granny Versus the Weather Bureau
AIRED:
Granny gets tired of the weather girl on TV saying that the weather is going to be clear when it is actually going to rain. She has ways to correctly measure the weather, mainly her weather beetle, Cecil. She confronts the head meteorologist of the U.S Weather Bureau but without luck. Jed goes down to speak to him and mentions the name “Daisy,” making Addison thinks he means Hurricane Daisy, and tells of the plan to get rid of her. After the misunderstanding it cleared up, Addison heads to the Clampett mansion to show a movie about how the weather is measured in modern times. But when the movie ends, it starts to rain, just as Granny predicted. The next day, the Weather Bureau receives many calls of complaint, and Addison guarantees that the weather prediction will be right from now on – Granny gave him tips and her weather beetle.moreless

      • (Jed goes to talk to Addison about Granny and her threats to the Weather Bureau)
        Addison: Did you say Granny?
        Jed: Well, her real name is Daisy.
        Addison: You mean Hurricane Daisy?
        Jed: That's the one.
        Addison: Yes, she is beginning to give us trouble. We just started tracking her.
        Jed: I was afraid of that. But couldn't you just forget about her? She ain't doin' no harm.
        Addison: Not now perhaps, but if she ever moves North, there's no estimating the damage she might do.
        Jed: I think I can promise ya she ain't gonna move north.
        Addison: Well, I wish the government Weather Bureau could be as certain as you are. No, I'm afraid we cannot ignore a force as potentially dangerous as Hurricane Daisy.
        Jed: What are you plannin' to do?
        Addison: Well, we're going to try something new with Daisy. We're going to fly over her with high altitude Air Force jets.
        Jed: You mean a airplane?
        Addison: Bombers, the biggest we've got. And we're gonna drop silver iodine and dry ice right in her eye!
        (Jed stands up, angry)
        Jed: Mr. Addison, government or no government, I reckon I can't let cha do that.
        Addison: Well, with all do respect Sir, I hardly see how you're going to stop us.
        Jed: Well maybe not, but I'm gonna do my best.
        Addison: What are you, a hurricane lover? Please believe me Mr. Clampett, Daisy is a violent, destructive force. She's unpredictable; she's dangerous!
        Jed: I grant cha all that Mr. Addison, but she's still my mother-in-law.

      • Addison: I am Justin Addison.
        Jed: Well, shucks, don't feel bad about that. I'm just a Clampett.

      • (Granny is tired of the weather girl forecasting wrong and talks back to her through the TV. And Jethro is trying to get to the beach for a weenie roast he thinks is going to occur)
        Jed: I don't think they can hear ya when ya talk back to this TV contraption.
        Granny: Well then why do they keep askin' me those questions, like "Are ya tired and run down?" and "Does too many suds clog ya washing machine?"
        Jethro: We got any weenies?
        Granny: Yeah, them kind of questions.
