THE STORY
Eb is fed up with being an operator at the Hooterville Phone Company and quits.

Mr. Douglas hires Carmelita, an migrant worker from the picking pool that he gets from Mr. Whothe (Who the?!?). Soon she also becomes fed up and quits, leaving a frustrated Mr. Douglas with no choice but to sell the phone company...to Mr. Haney.

Mr. Haney gouges the residents of Hooterville by charging $.50 for information (ANY information) and re-zoning the valley so that all calls are now toll calls. Mr. Haney's poor phone service causes the farmers not to be able to get pickers for their crops, and the valley decides that Haney can either pick their crops or get tarred and feathered.

The show ends with the valley giving the phone company back to a dismayed Oliver.
