Oliver contacts Carol, his one-time secretary, to find out where she'd had his watch repaired years earlier. In this pilot for a proposed series, Carol now works for a domineering California realtor. She prevents her boss from being conned by a man that Oliver had tried to indict back in New York.

As noted, this episode served two purposes; to provide an episode for the series 'Green Acres' and to broadcast a pilot of a proposed new series. The pilot title was the same as the episode title, but no name for the new series had been picked out. A common device in the 60s and 70s the 'back door pilot' piggybacked on an existed series and broadcast as part of a regular episode. Many series started from this device, including some major hits. However, as the viewing public wised up to the technic it was used less and less. Today, it is not used as often. See more
