Episode Summary

EDIT
Women's Lib
AIRED:
Granny and Elly have decided to support the women’s lib movement, since Jethro treats them like servants. Each time Jed tries to make it better, Jethro ends up messing it up and upsetting the women even more. At the bank, the secretaries continue to fight for liberation, but Drysdale has decided to challenge them as well. After one secretary, Susie, scared away two guards, Drysdale hires Banzai, a karate expert, to scare the women away, as well as breaking Helen’s car. When Jed tells him that Elly and Granny are protesting, Drysdale and Banzai head to the mansion to put the women in their place. Banzai busts up one of their iron benches, upsetting Granny. She beats him up, greatly shaming the karate expert. The women decide to then leave and join the women’s lib movement. Drysdale asks Jed if Banzai, who is upset about what Granny did, can stay at the mansion, and Jed says it is okay. Jethro hears this and congratulates Jed for doing something right, not knowing it was he who drove Elly and Granny away.moreless
