Episode Plot: As she sees Steve as a nice young man and a possible future son-in-law, Kate has his best interests and his welfare in mind. She believes his life as a pilot is a dangerous one and as such, she would like to see him in a different profession. So, when she learns that Steve has a journalism background, she tries to convince Sam to turn over the running of the Hooterville World Guardian to Steve. Sam agrees as he doesn't have time to do the newspaper justice. With no crop-dusting work to be had in the valley, Steve accepts the offer. This move doesn't sit well with Uncle Joe, the supposed president of the Carson-Elliott crop-dusting dynasty. To show Kate that this move was one done in error, Joe goes on a quest for crop dusting business from their valley neighbour’s. With seemingly no bugs infesting the crops and thus no business, Joe tries instead to manufacture some business through some devious means.

Episode Plot: Without telling anyone in the valley the reason why, the anyone who includes the family, Kate takes a trip into the big city. It isn't until her return that she divulges the reason to everyone: she decided to sell the hotel and she went to the city to finalize the terms of the deal with the buyer, Mr Holloway, a chain hotelier. The money from the sale will provide an opportunity the girls want. Beyond the valley residents who are sad to see Kate and the girls leave, the girls themselves are initially happy about the news and being able to live out their dreams. But they all come to the realization that part of their dream still does include calling the Shady Rest home, especially after Steve announces that he's staying regardless. Kate comes to understand what life in Hooterville and at the Shady Rest really means to them all, including herself, but she feels that she made a verbal agreement with Mr Holloway of which she ethically cannot back out. Uncle Joe tries to use a little emotional blackmail to convince Kate not to sign to final papers.

He got her an audition at the Flamingo Room in Springdale. Kate isn't too sure that she wants Billie Jo to pursue this career, but with Billie Jo being twenty-one and of age, there's no way she can stop her. Following the audition, Billie Jo is certain she got the job. Kate, however, isn't so sure her daughter's right as they told her "don't call us, we'll call you". When Kate receives the news for Billie Jo that she didn't get the job - only because she didn't have a big enough name to draw in customers - Kate has a change of heart about Billie Jo and this job. With help from Uncle Joe and Sam, Kate thinks she knows a way for Mr Austin, the Flamingo Room's manager, to change his mind.

Episode Plot: After he agrees to go to the turnabout dance (where the girls ask the boys) with Bobbie Jo, Tommy Johnson must back out since he ends up having another commitment. Bobbie Jo, who told all her friends about the date with the most sought-after boy in her class, feels that she can't ask anyone else in that social circle to the dance since he would know that he was the second choice. But as Billie Jo and Steve recently had a fight where Billie Jo isn't speaking to him anymore, Bobbie Jo feels that Steve is fair game as a potential date to the dance. Bobbie Jo even asks Billie Jo if it's all right, and Billie Jo gives her consent. Steve accepts Bobbie Jo's invitation. Following, Tommy tells Bobbie Jo that he now can make it to the dance since that other commitment is no more. Since she already has a date with Steve, she now refuses Tommy. Feeling Tommy now fair game, Betty Jo wants to ask him to the dance. Betty Jo, in turn, asks Bobbie Jo if it's all right if she asks Tommy to the dance, to which Bobbie Jo gives her consent. Tommy says yes to Betty Jo's invitation. The problem with these pairings is that Billie Jo feels jealous about Bobbie Jo's date with "her" boyfriend, and Bobbie Jo feels jealous about Betty Jo's date with "her" boyfriend. Add to the mix Jerry Massett, a mechanic friend of Steve's from his air force days, who is visiting Hooterville. Jerry ends up asking a free Billie Jo to the dance, which makes Steve jealous.

Episode Plot: Henry and Wilma Tuttle, who was looking for a happy place to live, have decided to move into Hooterville Valley. They are the valley's two hundred fiftieth and two hundred fifty-first residents, pushing the valley's population over the magic two hundred fifty marks which means Hooterville is now eligible to have a representative on the County Board of Supervisors. Sam scoffs at Kate's suggestion of Elmira Peabody, the local schoolteacher, as a good candidate for Supervisor, Sam's scoffing solely because Elmira's a woman. That act by Sam sets off a battle of the sexes for Hooterville's Board representative, the men who eventually decide to back Sam (with Uncle Joe as his campaign manager) and the women who eventually decide to back Kate (with Selma as her campaign manager). With the valley equally divided based on gender, both sides feel the best way to win is gain the vote of those in the valley who have no previous allegiance, namely the Tuttles. The women try to convince Henry to vote for Kate, while the men try to convince Wilma to vote for Sam. Henry and Wilma make their stand in the situation known in a slightly different way besides the ballot box.

Episode Plot: Kate's cousin, Mae Belle Jennings, writes stating that she is coming for a visit with some big plans for the hotel. Along with her letter are some mod clothes for Kate and girls, which are part of the plan. Upon Mae's arrival, she tells them that with some backing from a wealthy banker, she plans on turning the Shady Rest into a health farm using a diet and exercise regimen called the "Mae Method Reducing Course". The only stipulation for the financing is that the banker's daughter, a slightly overweight woman named Agnes Bedford, must lose fifteen pounds in two weeks while staying at the hotel using the Mae Method. However, Mae herself can't stay as she must go back and deal with the banker, leaving Kate to administer the Mae Method for Agnes in her place. The clothes are for Kate and the girls to be visual inspirations to show Agnes what she can look like after she loses the weight. Uncle Joe is all for the idea until Kate tells him that he will be the male guinea pig of the Mae Method to show that it works on both men and women. Agnes, who loves her food, isn't the easiest person to convert to this new way of life. They just hope that Agnes, who shows some early weight loss during her stay, will be able to reach her goal by the time Mae returns. Kate, the girls and Uncle Joe's reward system for Agnes doesn't help their cause.

Episode Plot: Business at the Shady Rest is worse than usual which is bringing Kate down. Instead of looking for a job to raise money which was his original plan, Uncle Joe speaks to Sam about the Shady Rest and Drucker's Store jointly hosting a fishing derby on Lost Lake. Uncle Joe figures that they can advertise expensive prizes, such as a boat, outboard motor and fishing gear, and order the prizes on a 30-day layaway plan. Since Sam and Uncle Joe has collectively caught the biggest fish on Lost Lake year after year, he figures one of the two of them will win the derby and they can return the prizes before the 30 days. In the meantime, the hotel will be filled up and Drucker's Store will be busy with new customers. Sam agrees if only to help Kate, who has no idea of the underlying scam when she agrees to the derby. The derby does bring in business both to the hotel and store, but it also brings in many fishers, one in particular who seems able to out-fish Sam and Uncle Joe and has more than an excellent chance of winning the derby, which would put Kate in even worse financial shape.

However, Selma, a club member, doesn't ever remember voting for someone to fill the position permanently, and she wants to hold a special vote just before the convention to elect a permanent recording secretary. Despite Billie Jo has done the job since she was sixteen, Selma is pushing for Henrietta, regardless of Henrietta not knowing how to type or take shorthand if only to send her instead of Billie Jo to the convention. Billie Jo remembers the meeting when she first started, and indeed she was only to fill the position temporarily until a vote could be held to elect a permanent secretary.
