Oh, Adam! Hoss is kind and obliging but he is not a doormat or the family dog! Better ask him if he wants to go!

I too think that Adam was attracted to Melinda, but that her behavior put him off. I personally HATE when a women throws herself at a man like that. If the guy is interested, he will sertainly let her now. Not something that I would do. I would flirt a little to see if the guy is interested or not. If he´s not, well, it´s his loss.

I always saw it -- and still do -- as Adam asking because Hoss is needed on the ranch and both of them would then be gone for a few days/weeks. It's because Hoss is necessary that Adam asks if it's alright.

Out of all the Bonanza episodes. This is the first episode I can recall the most vividly. Let’s see if I can recall it from an 11/12 year old perspective: Cartwrights have company over including a pretty girl. Joe likes girl. Girl likes Adam instead. Sounds simple, except discovered I was putting myself in Melinda’s shoes and trying to relate to how she was feeling... By the time I realized what was happening (with Melinda), Adam was away with Hoss, and I spent the rest of the episode wondering what Dr. Bellows was doing on the Ponderosa (I was already a fan of I Dream of Jeannie)! Looking back now that I’m older, I recognize actors playing different roles, and I don’t see Hayden Rourke as Dr. Bellows (who didn’t exist yet at that point in time of filming). I will admit Joe was very cute, though I still see what Melinda saw...but even now I still don’t see why Adam went away!

Melinda's mom was the one trying to push her into a marriage with Joe, because she thought he was easier to control :rotfl Melinda was a bit too obvious! She pretty much threw herself at Adam. There may have been a relationship between Adam and Melinda but Adam backed off so as not too hurt Joe. It hurt Joe anyway! :shrug
