Episode Summary

EDIT
The Clampetts in London
AIRED:
The Clampetts are on the plane to England, with “Sir Jethro” as their leader. But with this comes a detour. The Clampetts get off the plane in San Francisco, after Jethro believes it is England. They get back on the plane and do finally arrive in England and are told that Jed’s cousin Marcus is late, meaning deceased, but they think he means late because he is diseased. After they arrive, Granny runs into trouble at the customs inspector’s office and gets her medical supplies and her jug confiscated. But after that is over, Granny heads to find a drug store to get new medical supplies. After Granny gives a few ideas of what she needs, the chemist thinks she is reciting the witches’ brew from Macbeth and thinks she wants Shakespeare, which Granny thinks is a medicine. But after he tells her some love sonnets, Granny starts falling for him. Jed quickly gets Granny out of there, and the clan heads to their castle.moreless
