Episode Summary

The Great Snow
Granny misses the seasons, especially the snowy winter. She wants to go home to the Hills and see some snow. Jed decides to let Granny win and calls Drysdale to tell him that Granny wants to head back home to the Hills. He learns that she wants the snow back. Drysdale comes up with a plan to keep the hillbillies in Beverly Hills. He tells them that a big blizzard is going to strike Beverly Hills and stages the whole thing. He gets fake snow and wolves, sound effects, special effects, and turns the air conditioning up full blast. After all this takes effect, Drysdale and Jane visit the mansion to “help” the Clampetts. However, during their visit, the Clampetts see that these wolves are stuffed and the snow doesn’t melt, and Jed realizes that none of this is real. Drysdale pins the whole scheme on Miss Hathaway, and Jed thanks her for going through all this trouble to make Granny happy. So Granny won’t learn the truth, Jed tells her Drysdale is sick, and she gives him “snow” ice cream, making Drysdale run out for a hospital.moreless

      • Drysdale: This whole visit's a phony. The snow is plastic. The wolf stuffed. The wind comes from a machine. The whole thing was dreamed up to keep Granny from going back to the hills, and it's my fault.
        Jane: Chief.
        Drysdale: I never should have let her talk me into it!
        Jane: Chief!
        Jed: Ya mean uh, this whole thing was Miss Jane's idea.
        Drysdale: One hundred percent. She dreamed up the whole idea.
        Jed: Miss Jane. That's about the nicest thing I ever heard tell of.
        Jane: Huh?
        Jed: Going through all that trouble just to make Granny happy. Thank you.
        Drysdale: Now wait a minute, it wasn't all her idea.
        Jane: Well, that's true Mr. Clampett. It was his idea to turn the air conditioning down so it would be cold in the house.
        Jed: That's the only part I didn't like.

      • Jed: Granny, this wolf is stuffed.
        Granny: With who? Who ain't here? Jethro! He done ate my baby!

      • Granny: These Beverly Hills winters is short, but they's killers.

      • (Granny puts a sausage to Jethro's nose, and he eats it)
        Granny: I knowed it! I always knowed it! He eats in his sleep!
        Jed: Yeah, his stomach might doze off, but that's a 24 hour mouth.

      • (Jed, Granny, and Elly are examining the sleeping Jethro who just ate a huge snack)
        Elly: What's that on his mouth?
        (Jed picks the scrap off)
        Jed: He's ate the fingers out of his gloves.
        Granny: And we's gonna be snow-bound with him?!
        Jed: Guess we better sleep in a circle like partridges. That way nobody will have their back to him.

      • (The Clampetts are planning to stay warm by eating some left-overs in the kitchen)
        Elly: I'll go wake Jethro.
        Granny: Oh he's up Elly. Come through here about fifteen or twenty minutes ago, headed fer the kitchen. Uh-oh.
        Jed: Quick, maybe we can salvage somethin'.

      • (Mr. Drysdale is on the phone arranging the snow storm for the Clampetts)
        Drysdale: I want a wolf outside every door. No Larry, not your nephew. I want the kind of wolf with big teeth, pointy ears, long hair. Larry, I don't care if he does still qualify. I want the kind of wolf that howls. Larry, four-footed wolves!

      • Jane: Listen to reason! For the last time, I'm telling you this crazy scheme will never work.
        Drysdale: You swear to that?
        Jane: This crazy scheme will never work!
        Drysdale: No, I mean swear that this is the last time you'll tell me!

      • Granny: Califoni weather has took my appetite.
        Jethro: Well, it ain't took mine. I'm stravin'!
        Granny: Get.
        Jethro: But Granny.
        Granny: Go eat some smog.

      • Granny: We's havin' a family talk.
        Jethro: What about?
        Granny: About how much we'd all like to go back home to the snow.
        Jethro: Not me.
        Granny: Who asked you?!
        Jethro: You said . . .
        Granny: Now, stop buttin' in when ya ain't needed!

      • Jed: What's everybody doing inside on a beautiful day like this?
        Granny: You call this beautiful?
        Jed: Look out there. The sun is shinin'. The birds is singin'. The flowers is bloomin'.
        Granny: Please Jed, yer turnin' my stomach.

      • Granny: Fred James, President. That's Jesse's grandson.
        Elly: Jesse James' grandson is president of a bank?
        Granny: Yeah. It's a good thing Jesse never lived to see that.

      • Elly: Sure don't have no seasons here.
