Episode Summary

The Clampetts Fiddle Around
Jane took Jethro to a concert the previous night, sparking an interest in playing the violin in Jethro. Jed has Drysdale and Jane hire the violinist they saw, Sebastian Stromboli, to teach Jethro. Before his lesson, Jane learns that Jethro doesn’t care about the music, having fallen asleep during the concert, and only wants to meet girls. Jethro’s music lesson doesn’t go well at all because he keeps falling asleep and doesn’t take it seriously, not to mention he lacks talent. Granny and Jed aren’t pleased with the music they hear, and they call up an old friend, Fiddlin’ Sam, to give Stromboli lessons. Stromboli is offended at first by being told he needs help, but after he learns that Fiddlin’ Sam makes two million dollars a year, ten times more than he makes, he starts playing Turkey In The Straw.moreless

        Granny: Elly.
        Miss Jane: Oh.

      • Man: I just heard Stromboli play. The man's a absolute genius. Unbelievable. Fantastic! Magnificent! I'm overcome. Without a doubt, the greatest violinist of all time is Sebastian Stromboli.

        Stromboli: Two million?
        Fiddlin' Sam: Course, you're gonna have to have a lot better fiddle then the one ya got. Something like this.

        Jethro: Say, how much did you pay for that one, huh?
        Stromboli: Fifty thousand dollars!
        Jethro: Wow, that's gotta be the slicker of all time. I only paid sixteen dollars for mine. Yours ain't no bigger than it.
        Stromboli: That's a Strataverius, ignoramus!!!
        Jethro: Strataverius Ignoramus, huh? I wonder who made mine. Hey, I see a label in here. It says "Made In Texas By Texans". Is this a Strataverius Ignoramus?
        Stromboli: No, simpleton!
        Jethro: Oh. Well, let's see which one has the best tone. You play your Ignoramus, and I'll play my Simpleton.
        Stromboli: Anything would sound better than this conversation.

      • Jed: Granny wanted me to make sure the first song ya taught Jethro was "Redneck Romance."
