I've always liked Slim Pickens, so seeing him in this role was quite interesting. However, I can't see him as being the type to kill anybody, not with his personality. I especially like the scene where Hoss is trying to get him to take his medicine and climbs on the bed, breaking it in the process. The look on Ben's face when he comes in and finds them like that is priceless. Gives you an idea of how he must've reacted when his sons were younger and having similar fights.

The ending is hilarious, when Jim Leyton crushes Hoss' hat on his hat, and Ben just points and laughs, saying, "I've been wanting to do that myself!" Hilarious. :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?
