Billie Jo is bringing her new boyfriend, Jerry Roberts, to Hooterville. Based on a discussion Bobbie Jo had with Billie Jo on the telephone, she's sure that Billie Jo thinks that Jerry may be the one, and as such everyone wants to make a good impression on Jerry, showing him that they are all friendly and loving and thus would be a good family in to which to marry. Additionally, Billie Jo tells Jerry before their arrival in Hooterville that everyone is down to earth, and that they all get along. By the time Billie Jo and Jerry arrive, Uncle Joe and Sam are fighting, and Steve and Betty Jo, while putting on the face of the loving married couple to give Jerry ideas, too are feuding. And Bobbie Jo's overt efforts to push Billie Jo and Jerry together has an unexpected side effect. Billie Jo has mixed emotions about what her family is doing, and has to decide how best to make Jerry see what she really wants him to see of her family. But Jerry may thoughts of his own regardless.
