Episode Summary

EDIT
The Party Line
AIRED:
Granny and Jethro return to Elly and Jed, who has been suffering his daughter’s cooking for a while, from visiting Pearl back home. Granny returns with presents and a new device – a telephone. This phone goes into the wall and is used for party lines, not like their basic phones. For Granny, this phone is high tech. She gets Jethro to install it, but he installs wrong, connecting wires to a light pole instead of a telephone pole, electrocuting himself, causing it to blow up, and making Granny go temporarily deaf. Jed and Granny head to the bank and ask Drysdale to get them a party-line telephone. Drysdale demands it with the telephone company. And in return, the phone company takes away their phone and replaces it with an old fashioned switchboard full of tubes.moreless
