Episode Summary

Jed Inherits a Castle
Jethro tells Jed that he has inherited a castle in England, after hearing the word from Drysdale. He gets costumes from Tudor times, thinking that Queen Elizabeth I is still reigning. Jethro even makes Granny wear an oaf costume, since she doesn't have Clampett blood. Drysdale and Jane visit, and Jane tells the Clampetts that what Jethro is telling them is wrong. But after Drysdale paints a picture for Jane, the two convince the Clampetts to go, even providing an oaf for Jethro, Miss Jane. After Jethro finally makes Granny "royalty," the clan, dressed in normal clothes, goes to get their passports. Though after letting Jethro speak for them, the clerk doesn't believe about the castle and thinks he is on a hidden camera show. The clan prepares to leave to England, stopping by the bank first, where Jethro has Drysdale become his oaf. After that, they go to board their plane to go to England.moreless
