Episode Summary

EDIT
Pearl is tired of all the old things around the mansion and wants Jed to buy new things so they can enter high society. This very day, Mrs. Drysdale is expecting a very important visitor, Priscilla Ralph Alden Smith Standish, who is an expert on historical artifacts and genealogy. Mrs. Drysdale wants the Clampetts to stay far away from her guest. But this backfires when Mrs. Smith Standish is told that Mrs. Drysdale is next door at the Clampett mansion, and she goes there. As soon as she arrives, Mrs. Smith Standish falls in love with all of the family’s old properties and artifacts. When Mrs. Drysdale finds out where her guest is, she calls the Clampetts, only to be told that Mrs. Smith Standish is all tied up in Jed’s trunk. Mrs. Smith Standish is looking through family treasures, but Mrs. Drysdale thinks the Clampetts are torturing her. When Mrs. Drysdale arrives, Mrs. Smith Standish tells her that she believes the Clampetts preceded the “Mayflower.” Mrs. Drysdale ends up making lye soap and washing pewter dishes to please Mrs. Smith Standish.moreless
