Storyline

Betty Jo's due date is fast approaching, with everyone in Hooterville excited by another baby being born in the valley delivered by Doc Stuart. Uncle Joe and his friends discuss names for the baby, which they want to sound strong and presidential, such as Joe Carson Elliott, Sam Drucker Elliott, or Newt Kiley Elliott. Steve throws Betty Jo and all the Bradleys for a loop when he announces that he has made arrangements with relatives in Baltimore for Betty Jo to stay there and have the baby delivered by one of the finest gynecologists in one of the finest hospitals in the country. While Betty Jo would rather stay in Hooterville and have the baby delivered by Doc Stuart in Hooterville Hospital, she is conflicted as she knows that Steve only wants what's best for her. While the Bradleys believe the decision is Steve and Betty Jo's to make, the townsfolk see Betty Jo leaving as a slight on the valley and as such they decide to snub Betty Jo and Steve. Will anything make Steve reconsider? ... Written by Huggo
