  • When Jonboy has to type something out, he asks the Baldwin sisters(newcomers!) if he can borrow their antique, father-owned, typewriter. He promises to take extremely good care of it, but Mary Ellen doesn't know what it's worth, until it's too late...

    HOLY CRUD! How could Mary Ellen be so stupid, I mean, she goes into the shack, and just sells a whole box load of stuff to a junkman! Well this episode was certainly a memorable one, considering it was the first time that JonBoy typed something. And it's the first time that the Baldwin sissies are shown (Major character development!) and they stay on for the remainder of the series. But will you really know what the recipe truly is when you see this? Well it's Bootleg (DON'T TELL THE BALDWINS!) I ablsolutly, totally recamend this episode! ~Old shows finatic.
