New Yorkers Bill and Connie Fuller have to move from their apartment. Without Bill's knowledge, Connie purchases a delapidated old farmhouse in Pennsylvania, where George Washington was supposed to have actually slept during the American Revolution. Much of the humor comes from the couple's many problems they encounter while trying to fix up the place. Written by

When Bill sarcastically asks Connie if the couple viewing their apartment were part of the "Dies Committee", he is referring to the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Established in May, 1938 and chaired by Rep. Martin Dies, Jr., a Democrat from Texas, it's objective was to investigate private citizens and public employees suspected of fascist or communist ties.

[stomping up the stairs
Is it safe to walk up this thing in September, or must I install a ski lift?
Mr. 'Kimbie' Kimber, the Handyman
Ain't had a good snowstorm in about... three years.
You just wait until you see it a month from now when it's fixed up. We're going to do it all with local labor. Aren't we, Mr. Kimber? Mr. Kimber's going to superintend the whole thing. Can't you just see the possibilities?
Connie, I don't see how you do it... or WHY!
