When the Ziffels buy a "Grabwell" washing machine from Mr. Haney (an
outboard motor hooked on to a oil drum) it destroys their laundry and
much of the Ziffel's house, including Arnold's TV set. The Ziffels turn
to Oliver Wendell Douglas to sue Mr. Haney, something he is only too
glad to do. Despite Oliver's excitement in messing up his opening
statement--"this is not an insolated isodent" he actually wins the case
and the Ziffels are awarded a judgment of $250, which Haney quickly
tries to get out of.
You'd think the courtroom scene would yield the best laughs of this episode, but the funniest stuff occurs in the first half of the show. The best moment is the very first when Mr. Ziffel knocks on the Douglas' door and the credits sneak in behind him only to disappear when he turns to see what's there! He finally catches the last one, for director Bare. Inside he finds his wife talking to Lisa while Arnold enjoys watching the dryer, thinking its a TV. There is a funny discussion about Arnold's handwriting before a large statue arrives from Mr. Haney. Oliver says he didn't order it and when they check the signature, it looks suspiciously like Arnolds.
Arnold in this episode is played by a different pig than the earlier shows. This one if anything is more pink and well groomed, without the scruffy legs and the black marks around the eyes and ears the pig in the episode "I didn't raise my pig to be a soldier" had.
It's just too bad the second half of this show didn't live up to the promise of the first half.
