Storyline

Oliver's steamed over Hooterville's dirt road, especially after learning the money to pave it was appropriated thirty years earlier. Never content to leave well enough alone, he descends on the state capitol demanding that something be done. The state finally agrees to start the project, but will have to tear down the Ziffel's house in the process. Oliver makes no headway on saving their home until Lisa drops the name of Mr. Haney's cousin, powerful hot dog vendor "Big Joe" Haney. Thinking all problems are solved, Oliver is shocked to hear the locals are planning to tar and feather him; they've been assessed millions of dollars to cover the increased cost of highway building since the project was budgeted three decades earlier.
