Green Acres
...Episode Three

<- Previous Episode Return to Episode Guide Next Episode ->
Lisa awakens from a horrible dream in which Oliver has bought a farm...Doh! Things improve slightly when after Lisa tries to get three eggs from a "man chicken," Kate Bradley brings over everything Lisa needs to make breakfast. Surprise! We find out that Mrs. Douglas cannot cook.

Kate teaches her how to cook something "easy"...Hot Cakes. After struggling to bite off a piece of one of Lisa's hot cakes, Oliver uses it to steady a table which Mr. Haney has leased him until their furniture arrives from New York.

Oliver tries to start planting his farm for profitability, but Lisa threatens to leave unless he first fixes up the house.

Oliver asks Sam Drucker if there are any good decorators in town, Sam recommends Roland Wilson from Pixley.

Back at the farm, Oliver's mother arrives to take Lisa back home and Mr. Wilson turns out to be a cake decorator. Oliver's mom leaves, Roland creates a cake of what Green Acres will look like when fully repaired, and the show ends with a darkened romantic interlude in which Oliver accidently crushes the cake.

Lisa's first attempt at cooking...Hot Cakes!

Sam Drucker sells Mr. Douglas his "Honeymooner's Special." For $18.00, Oliver received 1 cookbook, 1 can opener, 1 coffee pot, 1 frying pan, 1 stew pot, 1 all purpose pot, 1 dish towel, 1 scouring pad, 1 bar perfumed soap, 2 toothbrushes, 1 bottle Brilliantine, 2 face towels, 2 bath towels, 1 non-skid mat, 2 sheets, 2 pillows, 2 pillow cases, 2 padded coat hangers, 1 hot water bottle, and 2 blankets (1 army/1 navy).

Mr. Douglas springs for the "Deluxe Special" ($8.00 more). It included 1 side of bacon, 1 can of coffee, 2 cans of succotash, 1 can of cream corn, 2 cans of applesauce, 2 cans of green beans, 1 jar of jam, salt, pepper, vinegar, 1 pound of assorted crackers, a large jar of Marischino cherries, 1 can of genuine sardines, stove black, 1 lamp wick trimmer, 1 doormat with "welcome" spelled out in three colors, a flashlight, shaving mirror, and a choice of one of two framed slogans (Home Sweet Home or Keep Smiling).
Itís not uncommon for a wife like Lisa to want to redecorate their new farmhouse, boat, RV, or any other toy a farmer might buy after becoming profitable. The interior furniture of a Marlow Yacht for example, is built with fine wood for a classy appeal. This would have been a perfect match for Lisa, played by Eva Gabor.
