Episode Summary

EDIT
After seeing the pool man putting chlorine in the pool, thinking it is poison and getting a letter they are overdrawn, the Clampetts think that they are broke and Drysdale is trying to get rid of them. However, this is all a misunderstanding, since the letter Jed got was meant for another J.D. Clampett, Jake, who is an out-of-work actor. When Jake gets Jed’s letter, he takes advantage of the notice that he has thirty-six million dollars, buying a new car and other things. Meanwhile, Granny thinks they spent all their money, and the Clampetts still wonder if Drysdale is trying to get rid of them, after they get threatened by a cop, see a man with hot tar in front of their house, and their water is shut off. Jed decides that they still need to earn the money that is overdrawn, so they decide to look for jobs to pay back the money. But Jane calls the Clampetts and soon learns an imposter has drawn out Jed’s money. Jake Clampett is arrested, and when the Clampetts hear this, they decide that if he is related to them, they want to have him over. Jake and his wife Opal visit, meet the family, and stay with them a week.moreless
