  • Trivia

    • In this episode, we learn exactly how mixed up Granny is about the Civil War. Throughout the series, she believes the South was victorious, winning every battle as well as the war. She also believed the North were cowards and rebels. Here we see Granny thinks that the North was fighting to defend slavery, while the South was trying to banish it. Slavery was a big part of the South's economy before the war, so who told Granny that the South was against it?

    • A few episodes ago, Jed didn't want anything to do with Mark Templeton because he thinks he is a coward for leaving the Navy when the Grunion are invading. However, in this episode Elly mentions that she talked to Mark on the phone about the Grunion. So the Clampetts didn't give up all contact with Mark. However, this is the last time he is mentioned on the show.
