Storyline

When a long-time Councilman suddenly leaves, some of the men wonder who they could convince to run in the special election that will be held. They decide on farmer Sam Jones as just the type of honest, hard working man they think would be ideal for the job. Emmett thinks he would make a pretty good Councilman and also decides to toss his hat in the ring. Emmett's political style is old school, basically promising anything to anyone and he's getting quite a following as a result. Sam realizes that he's going to have to scramble if he wants any chance of winning and bases his campaign on openness and transparency with no promises to special interests. The race comes down to the wire with no one knowing who will win. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?

Goofs

Emmett Clark calls both the owner of the Diner and a fisherman "Harry". The ending credits list "Harry" as being played by "Don Sturdy" (a.k.a. Howard Hesseman) who also played a "Counterboy" in "Goober Goes to the Auto Show" (2/5/1968) and is the fisherman. This leaves the ending credit listing "Lou" played by "Gil Lamb" as being the Diner owner. See more »

Quotes

Howard Sprague: Job like that the world's your oyster.
Goober Pyle: What?
Howard Sprague: Just an expression, Goob.
Goober Pyle: Boy, they're sure comin' up with some crazy ones.
