O'Donnel's, a new supermarket with all the modern conveniences, has just opened in Pixley, which is driving down business at Drucker's. Even Uncle Joe goes to O'Donnel's to check it out, in the process buying a lot of needless items just because they have them available. Kate and the girls are among the few of Sam's truly loyal customers, but the situation is driving Sam into a nervous anxiety which he isn't even aware is happening until... Kate and Doc Stuart are able to convince Sam to take a two week vacation, while Kate and the girls look after the store for him. In the process, they decide to organize the store for him. But Uncle Joe left alone in the store could cause irreparable damage both to the store's financial health and Sam and Kate's sanity. Written by Huggo

Before O'Donnel gets mad and hits the counter, the "change due" amount on the cash register is $0.78. When he hits the counter and and the cash register goes crazy, the "change due" amount lands on $1.00. In the next long shot showing an exasperated O'Donnel, the "change due" amount still shows the previous $0.78 instead of $1.00. See more »
