THE STORY
Mr. Haney sells the Ziffels a "Grabwell Washer" (a large waste barrel with a boat motor in it).

On it's first use, the Grabwell Washer literally destroys the Ziffel's house. Mr. Ziffel wants to shoot Mr. Haney, but Oliver suggests finding satisfaction in a court of law. During the court case Oliver makes it clear that this is not "an insulated isodent" and that Mr. Haney had been conning "the poople of Heeterville Valley" for quite some time.

Despite major nepotism (the first judge is Haney's cousin Leroy, the second judge is Haney's lawyer's Aunt Tilley), Mr. Haney loses the case, and is sentenced to pay $250.00 to the Ziffels.

He first tries to pay this off in merchandise which the County Tax Assessor (his cousin, Joe) has appraised, but when Mr. Douglas deems this as unacceptable, Mr. Haney holds an auction. Miraculously, Mr. Haney makes over $800.00 for his junk, thanks mostly to, of course, Mrs. Douglas's purchase of a grandfather clock that was supposedly, previously owned by Abraham Lincoln's neighbor, Lester Henderson.

The show ends with Lisa demonstrating to Oliver an item she received in trade from Mr. Haney...a Grabwell Whirlpool Bath.
