Storyline

The Cannonball arrives into the Shady Rest stop an hour early with two associated distresses: a "For Sale" sign, and Homer Bedloe. A week Thursday, the Cannonball will go to the highest bidder, with one bid already having come in from a junk dealer who wants it for scrap. Bedloe further tells them that the sale is out of his hands as the C & FW Railroad has been sold to the H. Greene Company, who is behind the sale and who has fewer scruples than Bedloe himself. The people of the valley decide to try and raise money in whatever way they can to outbid the junk dealer, with Aunt Helen taking it upon herself to find out what that bid is. When they find out that bid is higher than what they can probably raise, Uncle Joe moves to Plan B: go to the top in Chicago and meet with the powerful H. Greene himself... or so Joe thinks.

Trivia

One of the episodes filmed without Bea Benaderet as illness gradually forced her to exit from the series. Rather than continue to write her character out of scripts, the producers hired veteran actress Rosemary DeCamp to portray Aunt Helen during the final six episodes of the fifth season. See more »
