Episode Summary

EDIT
The Soup Contest
AIRED:
Granny enters Elly in a soup-making contest, with her own Snider Surprise Soup. When Jed finds out Granny cheated, he demands that she pull Elly May out of the contest. But Granny refuses to because this is a way to get Elly a husband. She tricks Jed into believing she got Elly out of the contest and gets him to go hunting, just in time. The men from Savory Soup visit the mansion and are amazed by the beautiful Elly, originally thinking she’d be a beetle. But once Granny tells Roger and Stafford that Elly isn’t twenty-one, they need her father to sign. Jane ends up posing as Jed, signing the papers. But Jed finds out what everyone has done, and Granny ends up doing the special, of course, not without having Elly show up in a swimsuit.moreless
