In the conclusion of a two-part story, the Ricardos are at their wits' end trying to figure out some way to get rid of their troublesome hillbilly house guest, Cousin Ernie (Tennessee Ernie Ford). After several misfired schemes, Lucy (Lucille Ball) conspires with Ricky (Desi Arnaz), Fred (William Frawley), and Ethel (Vivian Vance) to convince Ernie that the Ricardos have gone broke and can no longer afford to feed him. But generous Ernie decides to help out his hosts -- and the Mertzes -- by dressing them up as rubes and wangling a musical guest spot on "Millikan's Chicken Mash Hour," a TV show hosted by another of Ernie's unlimited supply of city cousins!
