One of my favorite episodes. My two favorite scenes are the ones where the Cartwrights come home and find Su Ling, and Adam immediately calls for Joe. And my second favorite is where they're all sitting outside, peeling potatoes, and Joe, being left-handed, seems to be whittling them more than peeling! :rotfl And the look that Adam gives him is probably best described as :thud

Isn't funny that every time something happens they all look at or call Joe! I love the way he's hiding up the stairs. It's not like every day one of them brings a girl home that they won, playing poker.

Well, with Joe being the youngest, he was most often the one getting into trouble, sometimes accidentally, sometimes on purpose. Adam would get into trouble once in a while, but him being the one with a college education, it wasn't like him to go looking for it. Hoss, he was the kind, gentle one who tried to avoid trouble, but often didn't make it.

I just went to see "Crazy Rich Asians" (I loved it!), and Lisa Lu played the grandmother! She's 91 and looks great!

Oh, she looks terrific! I love her commentary on the CD for Day Of The Dragon. She told a bit about herself and said that Bonanza was her first big role. I love the episode and I can't help but laugh every time pa says 'you mean at your age, Joe, you don't know the difference between a girl and a horse?' :rotfl

I always wondered whether Pa was questioning his own ability to rise teenage Joe. :grin :wink

She looks amazing - Nobody would think she is 91 :thumbup
