Ben sends the boys into town and they learn about an upcoming election. After a hefty bet is made between the two brothers on the outcome, they become campaign managers.

Trivia: This was Wally Cox’s second and last appearance in the series. Cox was a childhood friend and sometime roommate of Marlon Brando. Upon his death, Brando was chosen to spread Cox’s cremated ashes. Brando took possession of Cox’s ashes from his widow in order to scatter them at sea but actually kept them hidden in a closet at his house and frequently talked to them. The Los Angeles Times on September 22, 2004, quoted Brando’s son, Miko, to the effect that both his father’s and Cox’s ashes were scattered at the same time in Death Valley, California, following Brando’s death.
