The plot of this episode is set in motion by Hooterville storekeeper Sam Drucker (Frank Cady), one of several crossover characters from Green Acres' sister sitcom Petticoat Junction. Sam also happens to be deputy sheriff, which puts him in a bind when he wants to go on vacation and no one else wants to serve as deputy in his absence. Out of desperation, Sam temporarily pins his badge on Oliver Douglas (Eddie Albert) -- who in his zeal to show off the tools of his trade, manages to handcuff himself to his wife Lisa (Eva Gabor) without bothering to find out if a key exists!
