Storyline

Singer Danny Scofield, née Fields (Donny Osmond), thinks his hillbilly relatives (Richard Paul, Marion Ross, Slim Pickens and Loni Anderson) will ruin his chances of impressing record producer Steve Sorrell (Rich Little), who becomes attracted to Danny's sister Kitty (Loni Anderson), who doubts her commitment to her fiancé (Randall Carver). An author (Eve Arden) pictures the Scofield family as potential characters for her next book and poses as a mountain woman to get the grandfather (Slim Pickens) to open up to her. Doc, Isaac, and Gopher's (Bernie Kopell, Ted Lange and Fred Grandy) cabins become flooded, so they bunk in with Capt. Stubing (Gavin McLeod) temporarily, keeping him awake at night, and annoying him incessantly. Two couples (Denise Nicholas and Robert Guillaume, and Pam Grier and Richard Roundtree) take the cruise together and one of the couples' wife (Denise Nicholas) tries to convince the other couple's husband (Richard Roundtree) that their spouses are having an affair.
