Episode Summary

EDIT
The Doctors
AIRED:
It is Spring Tonic time, and Granny dispenses it out at the bank. However, Dr. Clyburn finds out about this and threatens to shut Granny out. Drysdale tries to prevent Clyburn from doing anything and suggests that Clyburn show Granny what modern medicine is. Granny accepts the invite, thinking it is a date, putting on flowers on her doctor’s coat. However, while she is down there, she sees that Roy doesn’t get any patients, unaware he has cleared his afternoon. When one of his patients, Mrs. De Longpre, does come, Granny gives real advice and not medicine, turning her away. When Granny gets back home, she wants to help Roy. The family makes a commercial advertising Clyburn’s services. Jane, Drysdale, and Clyburn see this, knowing it’ll hurt Clyburn and upset him. But once Mrs. De Longpre visits, praising Granny’s advice, she says how everyone is at a charity bazaar, meaning no one saw the commercial and Clyburn's reputation wasn't ruined.moreless
