Episode Summary

EDIT
Jed Buys Central Park
AIRED:
Granny and Elly are preparing for the wedding, but a big blow comes when Matthew mentions that he has a wife, and Granny learns he is really a preacher, saying he’d marry Elly because he marries people every day. Meanwhile, con man Shifty Shafer, a.k.a. Honest John, comes to Silver Dollar City and, after hearing how much money they have, he persuades the hillbillies to go to New York with him. They agree, especially Granny, who wants to escape her embarrassment of Elly not getting married and Elverna Bradshaw winning their bet. When Drysdale, who just bought the Bank of Bugtussle, hears the Clampetts went to the Big Apple, he passes out.moreless

      • John: My mind refuses to accept the fact that you're a grandmother. But my eyes tell me that you're a seductive love goddess.
        Granny: Oh, come on now. Let's hear the truth.
        John: Okay. You're a Dietrich. A Lamour. A Garbo!
        Granny: Well, you don't have to get mean about it.

        John: Thank you.

      • (Matthew tells Granny he is a preacher, and will marry Elly to another, not meaning himself)
        Granny: Oh Shorty, I wish you was a few years younger and a few feet taller and a few feet wider.
        Shorty: So I's could marry Elly?!
        Granny: No! So you could throw this person outta the windaw!

      • Jethro: Do you know any girls in New York?
        John: Oh, oodles of em.
        Jethro: Any chorus girls?

        Jethro: Oh, I likes em fine.

      • Elly: They any critters in Central Park?
        John: Well, there are . . . critters?
        Elly: You know, wild varmints like possums and raccoons and foxes.
        John: Oh no. No. Nothing like that my dear. Nothing wild to frighten you.
        Elly: But I like em.
        John: Oh yes! Oh, there's plenty of those. But they're not wild; they're tame.

      • (John asks if the young girl getting married is Granny, and she says it's Elly)
        John: Tell me, are you older or younger than this lovely girl?
        Granny: Girl? Oh, why I must be seven-, uh, six-, uh, fif-, uh. Oh, I'm purt near forty.

      • (Jethro is excited to meet a genuine New Yorker from NYC, and is rapidly shaking Honest John's hand)
        Honest John: How do you make it let go?!
