Simon Legree Drysdale
AIRED:
Elly tells Granny and Jethro that the mansion is full of pretty girls. The clan soon learns that Shorty set up the mansion as a hotel for women. They figure they should get some information, and Jethro is more than happy to ask the girls. But they decide to wait until the girls wake up, and when they do, Elly talks to three of them, Helen, Jean, and Joy. At the bank, Jean’s brothers Cookie and Earl are wondering why their sister moved out of her house into the mansion, and Drysdale tells the reason, with one untrue addition, that it is his and he is who started the charity. To prove this, he gives Jean the day off, and Jean takes advantage of it. She helps Elly with the chores and takes a swim. But Cookie and Earl visit the mansion to see Jean, under her own will, doing chores. When Drysdale hears of this, and sees Jean working on her possum pie, he forces her to come back to the bank. But to escape, she locks herself in the cage to tell Granny. Her brothers find her, and later Granny stops by the cage to find Drysdale locked in, after being forced to swallow he key.moreless
