Episode Summary

EDIT
Honesty is the Best Policy
AIRED:
While the Clampetts are talking about Honest John and why he didn't accept the money, Shifty and his wife are talking about why Shifty gave it back. They decide to work as a team, with Flo posing as John's Spanish mom. Flo is worried that they'll spot her and realize she is not at all Spanish. Well, luckily, the Clampetts can't see pass her disguise. She uses simple Spanish words as answers. Drysdale wants to know where the drilling is, so he sends Jane to find out. Granny tells Jane the plan to drill to get rid of the smog. When Drysdale finds out, he buys the specific mountain range. Jed heads to the bank to get a new bag of money, but Drysdale isn't too happy about it. He tells him he's acting tacos and should be more tortilla. At the mansion, Flo is looking in the front hall safe, unaware there is goat cheese. She smells it and gets knocked out. Granny revives her with tonic. Jed gets back and gives Honest John the money. He calls a cab and is about to get away with everything, until the tonic gets to his wife. Flo makes him give it back. The two leave, with the same amount as they came with. Drysdale comes to tell Jed that if he wants to drill for oil, he has to lease the land from him. Jed tells him what the whole plan was, and Drysdale is sick, after just mortgaging everything. He is out everything, and Miss Jane has finally seen him getting what he deserves.moreless
