Episode Summary

EDIT
The Clampett-Hewes Empire
AIRED:
Jed and Howard Hewes are preparing to get their airport deal all wrapped up, and Drysdale decides to come out and visit to meet the famous recluse of a billionaire. He brings along Jane, who is dressed in jeans and an old sweatshirt to look like she has the simple touch, though she's not pleased since it looks so masculine, and his three singing secretaries to sing "Howard Hughes, We Love You." Unfortunately, Howard's wife sees the women and chases him, and sadly catches him, really hurting him. Everything seems to be going smoothly until Drysdale sees the spelling of Howard's last name, learning he is not in fact the billionaire, but just a farmer. This sends Drysdale into a quick state of depression at the end. Meanwhile, Jethro has stopped wearing his Four Star General uniform, into more realistic aviation clothes, what Lindberg would have worn, to learn how to finally fly a plane. But Jethro doesn't find success in that either.moreless
