Oliver travels to New York to wrap up a case for his old law firm. While he's gone, Lisa and Eb take in a puppy left on the doorstep. When Lisa interrupts his meeting to tell him about "Little Freddie," she fails to mention the baby is a dog. Thinking she's found a human child, he tries to talk her into contacting the sheriff. She refuses, so Oliver abandons his case and races back home to Hooterville. Written by

At the start of Oliver's meeting as Lisa's call comes in we see everyone sitting at the table and he's writing (with his left hand) on a yellow legal pad. Then when they show the close-up of Oliver alone from the front he breaks in with something to add to the conversation and the yellow pad has some white papers on it. He puts down the pencil on the bare table between the papers and coffee cup as he picks up some other papers. As he's talking ("gentlemen please, I think there's a very simple solution to the case. All we have to do is.........") they switch back to the group shot and the other man is taking the call. But now the pencil is laying on the pad with some additional papers on it too. As Oliver is pausing for the man to answer the call he's messing with his papers and trying to pick up the pencil which he fumbles with and pushes it back off the papers and what looks like off the table and is informed that the call is for him from his wife in Hooterville. He reaches for the phone with the same hand that was trying to grab the rolling pencil (left) without having retrieved it yet. When they switch back to the close up of Oliver alone as he takes the call the pencil is now sitting neatly back on the bare part of the table. Back and forth it goes whenever the shot is of the group the pencil is on the papers and when it's of Oliver alone it's sitting on the table to the left of his papers. With all the jumbled up papers and the pencil popping up here and there it's a wonder that he ever gets any work done at all. See more
