Episode Summary

The Diner
Jed thinks that it is time for Jethro to start in the business world, and Jethro decides to become a fry cook and open his own restaurant. Jed is okay with this, but when he tells Drysdale, he is unsure of this because he is afraid of losing some of the Clampett money. The banker does end up buying Jethro a place on Restaurant Row, but the building is a wreck, with rent only thirty-five a month. Jethro is just glad to have a place of his own. But once he opens, no one even visits, except one lady who needs to use the phone. After she leaves, Jed, Granny, and Elly come down to Jethro’s place, “The Happy Gizzard,” because they miss him. Jethro is under the weather after having no luck, but after being offered the help of Granny’s cooking, he brightens up.moreless

      • Jethro: You can't tell me nothing about the facts of life.
        Jed: Well, that's comforting.
        Jethro: Yeah. I'm what cha call a swinger. For instance, you know how I used to think that babies come from under cabbage leaves.
        Jed: Yeah, I remember.
        Jethro: Well, they don't.
        Jed: They don't?
        Jethro: No, that's just the story they tell little kids. How they really get here is where the birds and the bees come in. Now ya see, there's this great big bird called the stork.
        Jed: Jethro.
        Jethro: Don't stop me now. At yer age, you oughtta be hearing this. Anyways, the stork swoops down and picks the babies up by the diapers, and then slides them off the end of their beaks down folk's chimneys.
        Jed: They do?
        Jethro: Yeah. Well that's the bird's part. I ain't quite figured out what the bees did.

        Elly: No ma'am.
        Granny: Good.
        Elly: He ate them too!
