The funniest part of this episode is when Joe says "I'm really PROud of you!"

I loved what came next, where Hoss chased Joe around the room, and Joe jumps on the table! :rotfl

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?

And then Pa comes in and Joe tries to keep on the opposite side of Pa from Hoss (burning himself on the stove in the process), except his plan backfires when Pa sits down heavily in his chair and Joe can't get past him ;D

I think we'd better stop with the "next" parts, otherwise we'll have the whole episode broken down by scene! :rotfl How about this? We just admit that we know the whole episode, back to front, inside out, and even upside down, and that it's one of our favorites? :ha

I can't say this is is a favorite of mine, but the previously mentioned scene is a great one. As for the rest of it...a corrupt army captain...a girl who falls for a man she's only known for a day or two instead of one of our respectable Cartwrights...and Adam plays a "Damsel in Distress" (this seems to be a theme here in Paiute War, and Blood on the Land as well).

But hey, I can't blame Ben for being "territorial" either.
