Episode Summary

EDIT
The Big Chicken
AIRED:
After Granny mistakes an ostrich that Drysdale owns for a giant chicken, which she believes she caused to grow to a huge size with her "growing tonic," made for her tomatoes, she tries to shrink it down to size and keep it a secret from anyone who could find out. She never does succeed in shrinking it back down to normal, so in the end Granny decides to enter this giant bird in the county fair because a creature of this size will definitely win a blue ribbon.moreless

      • (Jed, Elly, and Jethro leave the mansion after Granny told them to buy Pasadena berries)
        Jed: Well, I reckon you youngins was smart enough to see right through Granny's business about the Pasadena berries.
        Elly: Sure Pa.
        Jethro: Heck yeah.
        Jed: Good.
        Jethro: Wanna take along some baskets for the berries or pick em up in Pasadena?
        (Jed and Elly look at Jethro)
        Jed: Jethro, they ain't no such thing.
        Jethro: Uh yes they is. That's where they hold the Rose Parade.
        Elly: Jethro, Pa's talkin' about berries.
        Jethro: Oh.
        Jed: We all know that there's somethin' mighty powerful vexin' Granny, or she wouldn't have gone through such trouble getting' shed of us. Now, the way I got it figured . . .
        Jethro: Uncle Jed, can't we talk about this on the way to Pasadena?
        Jed: Boy, we ain't going to Pasadena.
        Jethro: Then how else is we gonna get Pasadena berries?
        Jed: Jethro, Granny just said that to get us outta the house so we wouldn't find out what's got her jumpy as a grasshopper in a chicken pen. Now the way I got it figured, it's got somethin' to do with her tomaters. So, let's go round back and take a look.
        Jethro: Uh, before we go to Pasadena?
        Jed: Yeah.
        Jethro: Oh, uh, want me to get some berry baskets?
        Jed: No.
        Jethro: Oh, well, where are we gonna put em?
        Jed: How bout your hat?
        Jethro: Well, I ain't wearin' no hat.
        Jed: Well get one because a brain like yours oughtta be protected.
        Jethro: Thanks Uncle Jed.

      • (Jed says that him, Elly, and Jethro are going to the store, while Jethro still believes the Pasadena berries story)
        Jethro: Hey Uncle Jed, are we gonna go to the store before we go to Pasadena and pick berries?
        Jed: Jethro, try to get this through your head: we ain't goin' to Pasadena to pick berries. Now come on, let's go to the store.
        Jethro: Oh, I see! We gonna buy em ready picked.
        (Jed and Elly look at Jethro and walk away)

      • (Granny is trying to get Drysdale out of the kitchen so he doesn't see the "giant chicken," who is locked in the pantry and knocking at the pantry door)
        Granny: I gotta answer the door!
        (The ostrich crashes through the pantry door)
        Granny: They got tired of waitin'.
