Uncle Joe's latest scheme has him keeping bees, which he figures will be his most lucrative business ever. Needing some initial capital, he turns to his "business partner" Steve, who lends him $25 that he and Betty Jo set aside as mad money. This action leads to problems between Steve and Betty Jo, who made a pact never to lie to each other and always tell each other everything in an effort never to argue. With a little help from Kate, Steve and Betty Jo are able to weather this minor storm. But that storm reignites itself after some insect misidentification by Uncle Joe - he who thought the hornets he collected were actually bees - which leads to another argument between Steve and Betty Jo. As Steve tries to help Uncle Joe fix the problem of getting rid of the hornets, Uncle Joe may indirectly solve Steve and Betty Jo's problem by his act to get rid of the hornets on his own. Written by
