Jethro Goes to School
AIRED:
Jethro announces that Pearl has sent the family a letter. In this letter, Pearl says how she hopes her son is doing well in school. Jed realizes that Jethro should be in the fifth grade and tells him they have to find a school that day. While driving around Beverly Hills, they stop at the first school they see, Mrs. Potts’ School. When Mrs. Potts first sees the two hillbillies, she doesn’t believe they are trying to get into her exclusive private school. But after talking to Drysdale at the bank, she learns how much money they have. After interviewing them, she misunderstands and believes Jethro is less than ten years old. She is excited, until she sees that this Jethro is the adult she met and not a child. She says that she will not teach him under any circumstances, but when Jed sees Drysdale coming up the driveway, she changes her mind and takes Jethro to school.moreless

        Mrs. Potts: What is his name?
        Jethro: Jethro Bodine.
        Mrs. Potts: Bodine, Jethro.
        Jethro: Uh, no ma'am, Jethro Bodine.
        Mrs. Potts: We always put the last name first. Now, male of course?
        Jethro: Uh, yes ma'am. Just got a letter this mornin'.
        Mrs. Potts: Date of birth?
        Jethro: Uh, December the fourth.
        Mrs. Potts: Year?
        Jethro: Uh, no ma'am. Back home. We've only been yhere a few weeks.
        Mrs. Potts: (to Jed) Perhaps you should answer the questions for our vital statistics. Now we need to know the complete birthdate, which in turn gives us the exact age. Now we have December fourth. And judging from the fact that your nephew is entering the fifth grade, I would submise that the year is um, fifty-one or fifty-two. Am I correct?
        Jed: No. Jethro ain't near that old.
