Episode Info

Harriet Oleson (Katherine MacGregor) thinks she has it made when she sells her restaurant to a national franchise. Before long, however, Harriet is being run to a frazzle in her efforts to live up to the franchise's lofty and exacting standards. Meanwhile, Harriet's husband, Nels (Richard Bull), teams with Charles (Michael Landon) to establish a rival eatery across the street, for the express purpose of "rescuing" Harriet by putting her out of business.
