Bonanza does Romeo and Juliet. A very sweet love story for Little Joe. We really get to see Ben's fierce love for his sons and how he'd never put the Ponderosa above their happiness.

But like Suellen Terry, Amy Bishop just didn't know when to duck. :scared3 The first casualty of Joe's romantic nature...

I found this episode rather hard to believe. I mean, Little Joe pulling a gun... on his father?! That's something that certainly served its purpose: To shock the life out of its viewers! :laughing If that's what the directors, writers, and producers were going for, then it surely worked. :grin
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 agree with you. Little Joe shouldn't have a gun at all. He's too hot headed.
