Pearl is trying to give Granny a break, figuring that Granny is so old and feeble that she cannot perform her household chores anymore. This upsets Granny greatly because she knows she can still get the job done. Granny chases after Pearl, and Jed decides to get the family to relax by taking them sightseeing around Beverly Hills. But the drive doesn’t solve the problem, only causing Granny and Pearl to bicker more. When they get back home, they continue their fight, but Jed tries to solve it, not finding any success. He then tells the women to swim with Elly May, but only Pearl goes. While everyone is at the pool and Granny is making lunch, Pearl decides to heat up some ham hocks on the barbecue. The clan eats until they are stuffed, and Granny comes out of the house to discover Pearl has done what Granny told her not to – cook for the family. Out of anger, Granny shoves Pearl into the pool and the barbecue she cooked on right after her.
