Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain.

—Gordon B. Hinckley

Synopsis: Sisters Jane and Penny are arrested for hitchhiking on their way to Los Angeles when they stop for a quick skinny-dip in a rural town. Local agricultural magnate Tropp is a sponsor for a local prison work program and the women get put in the cotton fields to work off their sentence.

Reaction: Not my favorite. As usual, there are a few good jokes here but overall, this early in the series' run, they're still working on their overall rhythm and style.

Personal Rating: 6/10
