I liked this episode, especially the opening, where Joe socks his brother one in the jaw! It's not really unheard or unseen behavior, as Joe and Adam often had their differences, but even so, you never really saw Joe take a deliberate punch at him. I especially liked Ben's advice about sticking together, and Joe swallowed his pride and eventually brought his family in to help him.
All for one and one for all, kind of like the Musketeers, even when one thought he could do things on his own. Everybody needs help with something or other in their lives. It just took Little Joe a while to realize that.
Wait a minute, wait a minute. What you're saying is that at your age, you don't know the difference between a girl and a horse?

I sometimes re-play the scene of Joe punching his brothers. That was funny! :laughing Joe felt like everything he did was just a joke to his brothers and was determined to do things on his own. In the end he realized there's no one like family to stand by you and help you when you need it. :very happy
