Added DiffLines:

* RousingSpeech: Oliver is fond of giving them, although the others are not so much roused as bemused. They are always accompanied by patriotic fife music, which the others often comment on, which confuses Oliver, who doesn't hear it.

Added DiffLines:

* TheAllegedHouse: The Old Haney Place, which former big city lawyer Oliver Douglas buys so he can become a farmer. A run-down old farmhouse with no inside phone (Oliver has to climb a telephone pole to make a call). Renovations take up much of the show's run and are never fully finished; the master bedroom closet, for example, doubles as a back door.

** Oliver and Lisa's stories about how they met are never the same... the only consistency with their stories is that their first meeting took place during WW2.

* LoopholeAbuse: In one episode the town revives its economy by building planes for the US military. . . useless antique planes because their contract didn't have a due date so they could still make planes designed for UsefulNotes/WW1. The government gets Oliver back by using the same loophole in his military discharge. All abuses fall through when it turns out that the town isn't competent enough to make even an antique plane.

* LethalChef: whatever you do, don't try Mrs. Douglas' "hotscakes".
** In one episode, Oliver even used the batter to shape a replacement car part.
** They also make excellent replacement roof shingles.

* LethalChef: whatever you do, don't try Mrs. Douglas' "hotscakes".
** In
Lisa is a horrendous chef and it's one episode, of the few things that Oliver and the kooky townsfolk agree on.
** She thinks nothing of making tea with a [[KlatchianCoffee teabag and a pot of steaming hot coffee]].
** The smell of her old-fashioned "fruitscake" alone is enough to clear out a room.
** Her "hotscakes" are so tough that you can't
even stick a fork in them and no amount of syrup will soften them up. Oliver once used the batter leftovers as a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ae4NDjHr4Y functional head gasket for his truck]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6DBMxYTT4Y Fred Ziffel likes to shape a replacement car part.
** They also make excellent replacement
use her "hotscakes" as roof shingles.shingles]]!
** The only remotely edible dish that Lisa can cook is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SzGdDqWJcFU "hot water soup"]]. Which is exactly like how it sounds.
