The Clampetts begin to settle in their new home in Beverly Hills, California. They are having to adjust to things such as refrigerators (Granny remarks how a ham will require two days to thaw out), ovens and the "cement pond." Jed also is having to confront how his daughter Elly May is maturing. He tells her that he, in effect, raised her as a boy and should not have. Jethro also encounters a flamingo that he thinks is a chicken (which causes Jed to suspect Jethro has been sneaking drinks of moonshine). Meanwhile, Miss Hathaway, executive secretary to banker Milburn Drysdale, mistakes the Clampetts for "domestic" help. She thinks Granny is a cook and Elly a maid. Written by

Did You Know?
According to "The Ballad of Jed Clampett," heard here for the first time, the "poor mountaineer" found oil on his property while "huntin' for some food." In the first episode that discovery was made by a geologist, who told Jed that his swamp was "full of oil." Jed responded, "I could've told ya that," knowing he had oil on his property but unaware of its value. This may explain the seeming discrepancy between the Pilot's story and the "story 'bout a man named Jed." See more
What kind of a cook are you?
I'm a cook with a stove that don't draw, food that's froze solid, chickens that can't be caught, eggs that can't be broke and a smart-alecky city woman tellin' me my business.
Mind your tongue little woman I can have your job.
You sure can and the sooner the better.
