  • Trivia

    • When Mr. Drysdale talks to the crow thinking it is his father reincarnated into a crow, it is not the first time on the show it has happened. In "That Old Black Magic," Mrs. Drysdale is dabbling in astrology, Granny thinks that a crow (actually a Mynah bird) is Mrs. Drysdale, who turned herself into one.

    • When Carol gives Jed her phone number, she gives him a number beginning with Crestview, but by 1969, this had become practically non-existant, and most shows were using phone numbers that started with 555.

  • Quotes

    • Granny: Why do all them girls need psychiatry?
      Jethro: They hates their mothers.
      Granny: Hates their mothers?! Why?
      Jethro: I'll find that out when I lay bare their ids.
      Granny: Oh no. There'll be none of that.
      Jethro: Granny, the id's in the brain. I reckon that's where the word "idiot" comes from.

      Jane: Precisely.
      Drysdale: Well, why did you hire her?!
      Jane: I didn't!

      Jane: You did.
      Drysdale: What did I say?
      Jane: "Wow."

    • Drysdale: This is, is too big to hide for long, especially with Carol around.

      Drysdale: She may, she may.

      Drysdale: Who told you that?!
      Linda: He did.
      Drysdale: Who told you?!

      Babs: That red hair's gonna get you in trouble, Mr. Cratchit.
      Cratchit: Just call me Brick.

      Jane: Mr. Drysdale's father?
      Cratchit: Oh, I worked for him forty years ago. I was six foot tall then, but, he, he beat me down.
      Jane: Don't be frightened of Mr. Drysdale Senior; he died many years ago.
      Cratchit: Oh, I'm not so sure. I said then we should have driven a stake through his heart.

    • (Drysdale is looking at his father's picture, asking for help)
      Drysdale: Listen dad, I'll tell you what I'll do. You know that little church in the valley, the one you always thought was so quaint and pretty. Well, if you'll get me out of this mess, I'll go out there right now, and in your name, I'll foreclose on it.
      (The picture of his father is smiling)

    • Cratchit: Mr. Drysdale, what about the Clampetts?! You promised them you'd send them all your employees! They're going to be angry.
      Drysdale: So what?! When I see the Clampetts, I'm gonna tell them to get out!
      (The elevator comes up with Jed and Granny on it)
      Drysdale: Mr. Clampett, Granny. Get out.
