Episode Summary

The Hot-Rod Truck
Jethro wants a new car, embarrassed by the truck. He buys two new cars for two different images he is trying. But Jed tells him to just get a few new parts. Granny, who is celebrating her birthday, believes that they are planning to replace her. But she learns the truth, and wants the truck to stay the way it was. Jethro ends up getting a whole new front for the truck, and when Jed tells him to fix it, he gets a whole new back. Granny gets the mechanics who fixed up the truck to put the old truck together, and to settle what is the better automobile, the two race their cars. Granny, with the help of her moonshine as gas, wins the race, and Jethro wants the hot rod truck back.moreless

      • (Granny overhears Jethro and Jed talking about the truck outside, and she thinks they mean her)
        Jethro: You mean we's gonna keep that old broken down wreck around here forever?
        Jed: I don't say forever, but as long as she still workin'.
        Jethro: But these cold mornings it takes forever to get her started.
        Jed: Maybe, but once she gets warmed up, she goes pretty good.
        Jethro: But she's a eyesore. She's a disgrace to the family. Come on Uncle Jed. Lemme just push her off a cliff. Then we can collect the insurance.
        Granny: (in the house) Duke, they's gonna do me in for my fifty dollar double indemnity.
        Jed: What kind of birthday surprise would that be for Granny?
        Jethro: It'd be a great surprise if you lemme give her that little yellow bomb.
        Granny: Now he wants to blow me up.
        Jethro: Listen Uncle Jed, let's forget about the insurance. It don't amount to nothin' no how. First, I'll strip her of everything we can sell.
        Granny: Strip me?! So that's why Jed took my shoes!
        Jethro: Then, I'll throw what's left in the city dump.
        Granny: Now I ain't even gonna get a decent burial.
        Jed: Well Jethro, I realize she's old and startin' to fall apart.
        Jethro: That's the truth. One good kick would finish her.
        Jed: Nope. Ain't gonna kick her to pieces, nor push her off a cliff, nor throw her in the city dump. When the time comes that she can't go no more, we're gonna ship her back to the hills and give her to some poor kids to play with.
