Episode Summary

Farm Boys
From Showtime: On a flight to Nashville to sing a duet with Emmy Lou Harris, Chris and the gang are forced to crash land in a wheat field in the middle of nowhere. They come upon an isolated by picturesque farmhouse and are warmly greeted by Evie and her husband Del, who recognize Chris right away. But despite their apparent good will, Chris and the others begin to suspect that Evie and her family are hiding something and have no intention of helping them to get home. As Yola settles into the guest room, she notices the odd behavior of Evie's son, Teddy, and how he is always sneaking up into the attic. More curious than afraid, she is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery and is amazed by what she discovers. Meanwhile, Anson has a dilemma. He's very attracted to Evie's daughter Inger, but he made a promise to God to give up girls if they survived the plane crash. Now he's having to resist all her seductive advances and the temptation is making him miserable.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • 1.  In the scene
        where Evie tells the cast that they can stay with her and her family, she says
        that Yola (and calls her by name,) can take the spare room.  Unfortunately, at no time before then were
        any of the members of the band introduced to her.  If Evie already knew Yola's name because of her familiarity with
        the band, there's not indication that Yola found that odd.

        2.  In the scene
        where the band have their jam session in the barn ("Somebody to Love,") Roly is
        seen playing a standup bass.  There's no
        indication that this instrument was brought by them on the plane, which would
        mean that it would have to have been in the barn; a fact that none of them seem
        to find unusual…

        As Chris tries to resist Evie's offer to put the band up for the night, Hershel admits to being tired and Anson claims he's hungry. Kenney comments, "Chris, the kids are tired and hungry."

        Quote #4:

        The band, after hearing the news that they'll be staying yet another night on the farm and attending the birthday party planned for "Old Grandad," discuss other options they may have to leave the creepy place:

        Quote #5:
