Feeling idle, Jed takes a job as a "sanitation engineer" (garbage man). Mr. Drysdale, fearing potential embarrassment, convinces John Brewster to put Jed to work on the board of directors of O.K. Oil Company. After the set up, the episode becomes rather random, with Brewster discovering that oil losses are due to the Beverly Hills section of a pipeline having been accidentally tapped by the Clampetts and the episode ending with the Clampetts converting the O.K. Oil company jet to a commercial carrier (with Jethro as pilot and Granny a swill-serving stewardess).
