A sneaky Kate organizes Charley and Floyd to take the traveling salesmen who spent the night at the hotel into Pixley before Homer Bedloe wakes up so that he himself can't make his way into Pixley to shut down the Cannonball. While Bedloe is stranded at the hotel, Kate plans to kill him with kindness so that he'll change his mind about shutting down the Cannonball. She has to keep him at the Shady Rest long enough to convince him that the Cannonball is an integral part of the valley's life. As long as Bedloe isn't convinced, the girls and Uncle Joe have to help Kate keep him stranded at the hotel, which also means not having the Cannonball stop on its return trip to Hooterville. Failing all else, Kate thinks she has another scheme involving Sam, the Hooterville Jack of all professions, to scare Bedloe into changing his mind. Written by Huggo
