Storyline

The county payroll computer erroneously sends John a paycheck for $5900 instead of $590, and vows to return his incorrect check only when the county sends him a correct check, he then asks Dixie to use the hospital's phone to justify his situation. The firemen aid a homeless person who is accidentally crushed in a car at a junkyard, a man injured by the family dog (who gives Roy & John fits, including sending one of them into the pool), and two workers caught on a scaffold.

Trivia

Johnny's check was supposed to be $596.10 but the computer added a zero and made his check $5,961.00. In 2015, those amounts (from 1976) would be equivalent to $2503.07 and $25,077.45 (respectively) after adjusting for inflation. See more »

Goofs
