Storyline

The farmers of Hooterville sign up for a government-sponsored agriculture exchange program to Europe. When they realize the $300 cost for tickets is per person, not per plane-load, they decide to supply their own airplane and fly themselves over. Since Oliver flew in the war, they draft him to be their pilot. The FAA puts a stop to their cockamamie plans. Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>

Trivia

There has been considerable conjecture offered regarding in what state "Green Acres" might be set. Two scripts from Season Three indicate that Hooterville may very well be in Indiana: In Season 3, "Flight to Nowhere", Mr. Haney indicates that it is "almost 400 miles" from Hooterville to Chicago, and in Season 3, "Our Son, the Barber", Eb asks Oliver to sign his application to "M.I.T....Middle Indiana Tonsorial College." Furthermore, Indiana's state nickname is "The Hoosier State", and one can't help but notice the similarities between "Hoosier" and "Hooter". See more »

Quotes

Oliver Wendell Douglas: [Lisa is cooking] What's that mess?
Lisa Douglas: They're croissants.
Oliver Wendell Douglas: They are?
Lisa Douglas: Well, they aren't official French croissants. I made them out of hotcake batter.
Oliver Wendell Douglas: I must say your hotcake batter has an international flavor, which is about the only flavor it does have.
