Episode Summary

EDIT
The Hero
AIRED:
Drysdale's nephew Lance Bradford comes to Beverly Hills to start his job at the bank, as Vice President. But with all the celebration for Mrs. Drysdale's hero, Jethro thinks it is for him since he saved her dog from getting his hair cut. When Lance gives his hero speech, Jethro pulls up and accidentally hits his car, knocking him unconscious. This causes Lance to meet the Clampetts, and he begins taking an interest in Elly May. But Mrs. Drysdale doesn't trust them, and tells Lance to stay away because they are setting a trap. Mrs. Drysdale calls Elly a vixen and a peasant, and Granny shoves her in the cement pond. Mrs. Drysdale asks Lance for help, but he can't offer any because he can't swim.moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (15)

      • Lance: I remember one terrifying experience. We were flying at twenty thousand feet, right through a storm. The plane was rocking and rolling and bobbing and wheeling, being tossed around like a kite.
        Elly: Oh my goodness, it must have been awful!
        Lance: It was. Stewardess hadn't given me a sedative, I never would have made it.

      • (Jethro tells Mrs. Drysdale that Lance and Elly are getting close)
        Mrs. Drysdale: So that's your game. You don't fool me with this doctor charade! You're hoping to lure my nephew with a beautiful face and a seductive figure.
        Granny: Ah! He ain't my type.

      • Lance: Old Jet Stream is good as new: nerves of steel, eyes like a hawk. (bumps into the door) Somebody just closed the door. One thing a pilot's got to have: great peripheral vision. (starts closing the door, and his hand gets caught) Tricky door.

      • (Drysdale is on the phone with the police after his bank got robbed after the celebration for Lance)
        Drysdale: Of course I have security guards, but they were out in front too, carrying balloons. (pause) I know they're supposed to carry guns.

      • (Jethro says that the HERO sign must be for him)
        Elly: You? What'd you ever do for Mrs. Drysdale?
        Jethro: I just saved her valuable French poodle dog, that's all.
        Granny: And for that she give you this big HERO sign?
        Jed: She does set a great store about that poodle though, Granny.
        Elly: How'd you save it Jethro?
        Jethro: Well, I was out back this morning, and I heard this dog a whinin'. So I looked through the hedge, and there was this sissy lookin' fella. He had a hold of Mrs. Drysdale's poodle, and he was cuttin' off all its hair.
        Granny: No?!
        Jethro: Yeah. So I says, "Hey you!" I says, "Let go of that dog!"
        Elly: Did he let go?
        Jethro: No. So I went through the hedge and asked him again. He just looked at me and kept on a-cuttin'. So I grabbed a hold of him and shook the dog loose.
        Granny: What'd he do?
        Jethro: He kept yelling, "Monsieur! Monsieur!" So I told him to go back to his sewer and leave that dog alone. And then he slapped me.
        Jed: Slapped ya, did he?
        Jethro: Yeah. It didn't hurt, but it made me awful mad. So I picked him up and chucked him into the swimming pool.
        Granny: Ha! I bet that cooled him off.
        Jethro: It sure did. He scampered out of there and took off like a wet jack rabbit. And once I had him on the run, Mrs. Drysdale took up the chase.
        Jed: No foolin'?
        Jethro: Yeah. She kept runnin' after him, yellin', "Henri! Henri!" And he was too. Orneriest little fella ya ever did see.

      • (Granny pushes Mrs. Drysdale in the pool)
        Mrs. Drysdale: Lance! Save me! Save me!
        Lance: Aunt Margaret, if I could swim, I would have joined the Navy. Help! Help! Help?

      • Mrs. Drysdale: What's the use of trying to talk to you people? You're illiterate creeps!
        Granny: Was that good or bad?
        Jethro: Hard to tell. It could go either way.

      • Mrs. Drysdale: You stupid lout, you boob! You're a thief and a kidnapper. You belong in jail!
        Jethro: Excuse me Mrs. Drysdale, hope ya won't think I'm touchy, but that ain't exactly no way to talk to your hero.
        Mrs. Drysdale: Hero?! You're as much of a hero to me as Attila the Hun!
        Jethro: Thank ya. That's better.

      • Granny: How ya feelin', son?
        Lance: All systems are go.
        Granny: Well, I'll give ya something to fix that.

      • Lance: Who are you?
        Jethro: Oh, I'm the fella that picked ya up when ya fell on your head.
        Lance: Well, when did you fall on yours?

      • Drysdale: Could I ask you and your lovely family to leave before my wife recovers consciousness?
        Jed: Oh, is your wife unconscious?
        Drysdale: Yes. When Lance fell on his head, she fell on her . . . She fainted.

      • (Lance comes to after falling on his head, and sees Granny looking over him)
        Lance: Who are you?
        Granny: I'm your doctor.
        Lance: I thought I was out of the Air Force.

      • Drysdale: What a catastrophe, an unqualified fiasco.
        Jed: Yeah, we thought it was real nice too, till that boy fell on his head.

      • (Lance is giving his speech)
        Lance: No longer "Jet Stream" Bradford: Terror Of The Skies, but just plain Vice President Bradford. So in the future, don't look up to me as a hero; look up to me as the boss' nephew.

      • (Jane, against her will, is dressed as Uncle Sam for the celebration)
        Jane: Chief, please don't make me do this.
        Drysdale: Oh no, no. You look great. Besides, I'm gonna give you a bonus.
        Jane: Really? What is it?
        Drysdale: You get to keep the beard.
