Continuity: When Jethro and Granny run out to the pool and see Elly May seated on the rhino, Granny tells Jethro to give it mouth-to-mouth. The camera cuts to a closeup of the rhino opening its mouth and growling, and it's clear that Elly May isn't on its back. In the next shot, she's back on its back again.
During the filming of this episode, the hippo wouldn't go into the two-foot deep swimming pool until the elephant it was in love with tried it first, but once they were both in it,they began relieving themselves in it. It cost the crew time to skim and clean it, resulting in the pool water looking dark in this episode. When Donna Douglas noticed it, director Joe DePew lied to her about the animals going in it and claimed he had dyed the water so it would look like the hippo was swimming as she rode it. When she later learned the truth, she smacked him across the shoulders.
(Elly and the hippo/hog are in the pool)
Granny: Ah! Elly May's drownin' my hog! Quick, Jethro, jump in and pull him out! Give him mouth-to-mouth resitation! (The hippo yawns, opening its mouth all the way)
Jethro: I ain't gettin' close to them jowls till they on a plate.
Granny: Now, you and me is gonna do some hog hagglin'.
Drysdale: There's no need to Granny. You can have him free.
Granny: Oh no! I came here to haggle, and we's gonna haggle. Now, you set a price, and I'll make an offer. Then we'll lock horns and go at it.
Jethro: Granny, he's willin'...
Granny: You listen and learn boy. I'll show ya how it's done. Alright, let her fly.
Drysdale: I'll sell you the hog for fifty dollars.
Granny: I'll give ya ten.
Granny: Fifty and that's my last offer!
Drysdale: Well, alright. Sold.
Granny: Look at him. He don't know what hit him. (laughs)
Jethro: But Granny, he was gonna sell ya the hog for thirty dollars.
Granny: Didn't learn a thing, did ya?
(Jethro is figuring out his commission of five percent on a 200 dollar order of hog meat)
Jethro: Hey, I made me a thousand dollars commission!
Elly: On two hundred dollars worth of orders?
Jethro: Looks like in the meat business, the money's in the seller.
Granny: Well he's got somethin' that's about to kill him.
Jed: Yeah. You.
Jed: What cha been white washin'?
Granny: The chicken house.
Jed: We ain't got no chicken house.
Granny: Well, I guess I wasted my time.
(Granny is trying to pull the hog out of the Drysdales' yard into her own through the hedge)
Jed: What cha doin' Granny?
Granny: Oh, hi Jed.
Jed: Hi. What cha doin'?
Granny: Tryin' to get my rope outta the Drysdales' yard. Must have snagged on something like a root or a stump.
Jed: Or a hog.
Granny: Giddy Up! Giddy Up! Come on!
Jed: Granny, I said leave that hog here!
Granny: Jed, I'm doin' everything I can to keep him here.
(shot of Granny on the hog like it was a horse)
I'm even settin' on him!
Jethro: Uncle Jed, if you buy that rascal, we's gonna be eatin' high on the hog sure enough.
Jed: High, low, and in between.
Elly: Granny, I think this critter come from Africa.
Granny: That must be some place in Virginia.
Granny: Yeah. They raise awful big hogs there. Feed em with peanuts.
(Jethro sees the hippo through the hedge which Granny thinks is Mrs. Drysdale he is talking about)
Jethro: Hey, there's a real funny lookin' critter next door.
Granny: Oh, out in the yard is she?
Jethro: I can't see too good, but it's big and fat, ugly, and got a mouth like a gator.
Granny: That's my dear friend, all right.
Jethro: Here Granny, you look.
(Granny now sees hippo and starts calling Jed)
