Episode Summary

Jed's Temptation
It is the day after Jed spent the night dancing with Phyllis, and he is stiff from all the dancing. Granny is throwing her “I told you so”’s at him. And when Phyllis invites him to the horse races, he accepts. When Drysdale and Jane learn of the type of woman she is, they warn Granny and drive her down to the racetrack to stop them. Meanwhile, at the racetrack, Jed and Phyllis are finding great success, because Jed can tell which horse will win. Granny gets there, but Jed and Phyllis leave before she can break them up. She gives money to Fred, who has been losing the races, to buy food, since she misunderstands him, and he bets on the horses, and wins. So Granny stays with him and they bet on the remaining races. Later that night, Jed and Phyllis plan to go out to dinner, and Jed is hanging around so Granny can have the pleasure of being right. Granny comes home depressed and goes straight upstairs. She won money on the fifth, sixth, and seventh races, but lost it all on the eighth.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Granny tells Elly May that she came home at a decent hour, unlike Jed who was out dancing all night. But in the episode prior to this, she got home at three in the morning. That mostly is all night, so it isn't that much of a "decent" hour.
