Miss Brooks opens by talking with Mrs Davis about her cash flow troubles. Mrs Davis changes topics by talking about vacation plans. She suggests to Connie about getting a job with the Deacon Jones Square Dance company for the Summer. He makes money like crazy, and is planning a tour on the road. The hillbilly dancers have kids that they will be taking on the road, and are willing to pay big bucks for a travelling tutor for the kids.
As Connie is tempted, Walter comes in. Even he is on a hillbilly kick, and talks about the Deacon Jones position for a tutor. He’s thinking of Miss Brooks and wants to get Mr Boynton interested in sharing the job with her. Will he go for it?
Miss Brooks goes to talk to Boynton, and drop romantic hints to entice her bashful biologist. Boynton resists, but it’s no use continuing to convince Mr Boynton when Mr Conklin enters with a report on the standing of the high school’s education rating. Not a good one. To crack down, he forbids teachers to fraternize with each other. Hmm… not sure how that will help. Still, Connie and Boynton plan a covert meeting to rehearse acting like hillbillies to improve their chances at that Summer job.
Not to be put off the cast, including Walter and Harriot all get together secretly to do their best hillbilly impressions. The fun can’t go on, and Mr Conklin crashes the party. But his anger doesn’t last long when he finds out the sweet offer the Hillbilly troupe is offering for their tutor.
But wait, it’s not quite over yet. Remember the mention of those failing school reports, and the school official, Mr Stone? Guess who happens in with another visiting school board VIP? It gets even more interesting when our cast mistakes the newcomer for Deacon Jones, and fires up their redneck act for maximum damage. Hillarious stuff, but I don’t think they made the impression they needed to.
