Yes, that´s true. Its no wonder that Ben was so enraged, after he saw Joe.

Sheepish is the perfect word, Aristocats. I know exactly what you're talking about. It's a favorite moment of mine also. Embarrassed as well maybe? :ha

I saw this episode once. I was surprised that they got away with the content considering how stringent it was in the early sixties. It was like when I watched "Duel in the Sun" a few years ago. That movie was in the late forties and they put a lot of adult content in it. But this episode was pretty bad as the Cartwrights' were going to a burlesque show and Ben was in love with Adah Menken.

I love the way the brothers think that Ben needs protecting from this woman. They are unsure as to whether Ben has ever encountered anyone like her, before (little do they know)
And I love Joe when he gets all spruced up and goes to visit Adah, in order to expose just what kind of a woman she is. All he succeeds in doing us putting his butt in the firing line with Pa LOL
I do wish that one of them had stayed with Joe after he was beaten up, or at least seen him settled in one of the hotel rooms, before they all went off to settle things with Regan.
Ben says 'Your Pa's right here' and then leaves the boy.
Little Joe forever

Forget the 'magnificent' Adah!! .....Ben is the magnificent one in his formal attire. He is the epitomy of elegance and his courtly manner is that of a true gentleman.
Many of the men of today 2017 would do well to copy ....

There was only one time that the Cartwrights scared me... literally scared me. And that was the scene where Joe is all battered and beaten. The first time I watched it online, as I do not own it myself, it shocked me.
This is early in the first season, really, and I think it set the tone for the rest of the series as far as exactly what Ben, Adam, Hoss, and yes Joe,
would do for one another. In the pilot episode, there's some exaggeration of the hostility to trespassers, and the boys' (particularly Adam and Joe) infighting (although Hoss casually just about breaking Adam in half while stopping the fight is not exactly unsurprising. We won't see him lose his temper with his brothers that roughly, and that nonchalantly, again).

But here they're a family. Unconditionally, unequivocally, and full-on damn-the-consequences, these men are going to put an end to someone abusing one of their family. In the end Hoss and Adam almost wind up roughing up Ben to ensure he's not the one to exact the well-deserved price from the villains who've beaten Joe. It's not that they're not sure he can; it's that the consequences once he does will be harder on him than them.

("We may have done a little bit of fightin' amongst ourselves," as the Charlie Daniels lyrics go, "but you outside people best leave us alone.")
A gun is only a tool, like your jackknife; no better 'n no worse than the man who handles it. Any man can pull a trigger. It's not hard. But it takes a big man not to pull one. -- Adam Cartwright

For an early episode, this holds up really well. I love all of the brothers interaction, especially when Joe helps Hoss escape out the window so they can sneak to town, not realizing not only is Adam already there, so is pa! I haven't a clue what Ben saw in Adah. His sons weren't too fond of her [ but pa! She's an actress!] This has the first of many JPM's. I love how caring pa was when Joe was beaten up. :very happy

I have to admit it was cute seeing the brothers scheme to break set things straight with Adah and their Pa—these boys, er men, did NOT want her as a stepmom!
