My favorite Green Acres episode is beetween the one where Oliver and Lisa get trapped in the cellar and when Oliver buys Lisa a horse for her birthday.

I have two :

The first is when Dilly Watkins "electronificates" the farm.

The second one is "Hooterville Image" when Ziffel and Newt Kiley make fun of Oliver for wearing
suits when he is plowing or changing oil etc.

Too many to mention! But I love "Double Drick" (The one where Oliver tries to get the Hooterville friendly gas/power/electrical company to get the "electricital" (as Lisa would say!) wired into the house. He goes in a rant to the power company office and is forced to take a number to be waited on. (He has number 22, but there is no one else there except the guy behind the counter!!!) He keeps reading off the numbers: Four.....anybody got #4....five....#5....than he skips numbers telling Oliver "some of our customers walked off with them!!!" Oliver says, "Maybe they got tired of waiting!" Than Oliver says, "HERE I GOT 22!!!!" The guy goes, "Oh my! I thought we lost that one!"

But the hysteria is that in Hooterville they have to put the meter in before you get electricity!!! (Company policy!) It's put in by..........(how can you top this for laughs????) LAWYLOR THE INSTALLER!!! But, he doesn't actually measure the amount of "electricital!" That job belongs to PETER GREADER THE METER READER!!!!!!" He measures the as Lisa would say, "Killer's watts" (killawats!)

These are the funniest lines!!!!

Default Favorite episode - The Spot Remover episode

There can't be a favorite. I have about 12 favorites. But...

Lisa's cabbage soup (or something like that) turns out to be a miraculous spot remover. A couple of exchanges:

Doris Ziffel, holding the cleaning fluid: "Fred, do you know what this is?"
Fred Ziffel: "How do I know, you drink something different every day"
Doris: "It's cleaning fluid"
Fred: "When did you switch to that?"

Sam Drucker's new toupee falls in the pickle barrel and turns green (actually, Hank Kimball thought it was an animal, sprayed it with bug spray, beat on it with a broom, and he and Sam wrestled with it until it fell into the barrel)

Fred walks in: "Sam, you been fishin'?"
Sam: "No, why?"
Fred: "Where'd you get that seaweed?"
Sam: "Fred, it's my new toupee"
Fred: "Got one in green, hunh? Well, weirder things than that have caught on."

Default MY favorite is...

"The Wish-Book". You couldn't get any zanier than this one. Who could forget..."Abraham Lincoln--STANDING ON HIS HEAD!!". Or, "But I vanted the cream separator!!" Or, "Dickie Mouse"! Or Tessie's bravura performance in "The Great Drain Robbery"!! Great send-up of silent movies and mail-order catalogs that just don't fill your order right!!!!

There are so many but...........I would have to say that mine is the episode where Oliver is asked to be a judge. They were vague (of course) as to what kind of judge. They meant "apple judge" and Oliver thought they meant an actual court of law judge. He went to the trouble of flying to New York to tell his mother and he visited his old law school professor to get some advice........"Do you want judge lessons" the professor asks. Lisa takes a phone call from someone back in "Hootersville" and tells Oliver they were calling about him judging apples. He immediately scolds her for not taking the message accurately......for surely (he thinks) they were refering to him being a judge on the appellate court. Gotta love it!

My favorite ep is definitely "A Square Is Not Round". (This is the one where one of the chickens lays square eggs, and they try to find out who it is....but....I won't reveal the rest!) The first time I saw this on TV, I missed the first few minutes. I was SO GLAD when it was part of the Season 2 DVD. I love the idea of being able to make the toaster work just by saying "Five". My favorite part of this ep is when Mr. Haney comes by after learning of the square eggs, and offers Mr. Douglas and "slightly used number 3 toaster." Mr. Douglas replies, "no thanks, I've got a five" - and at that moment the hood to Haney's truck flies open. Haney mutters, "the fella that sold me this truck said it had a number two hood." Toward the end of the scene, as Haney's about to board his truck, he loudly says the number "SEVEN" and the truck starts up! LOL!!!

Also, my fave eps are any where they feature the "names" (such as Directed by______) on things like eggs, plywood, etc. during the opening credits. Someone would often say "there's those names again" or something to that effect!

That's why I love this show so never took itself, or its characters seriously!

I really liked the episodes in which Fred Ziffel shows that he's re-shingled a portion of his roof with Lisa's pancakes, and the one in which the old tractor is hopped up (Oliver starts it up and it takes off like a rocket!).

I loved many that you've mentioned. The spot remover episode was brilliant. How about the one in which the "artwork" arrives at the Douglas home, and turns out to be an incredible mess of plumbing pipes?

There are lots, though; if I had to name one, I would probably choose the very first episode as my favorite.
