Just for some of these fun scenes alone,this episode is chock full of good laughs!
Brothers at their best!

Right from the starting gate, you knew this was going to be a fun episode! There were so many good scenes I could probably list them one after another, but I'll stick with this one and leave the rest for you.

In this scene at the end, when Adam goes after Hoss ... slowly. :laughing They must have had a great time filming this one. You know, big ol' Hoss backing up as Adam is approaching, with Adam taking off all his 'confining' wearables, like his mustard, yellow jacket. I can play that scene over and over again and never tire of it.

What's your most fun part?

I love that final scene! Adam can even intimidate his "big" brother when he has that fire in his eyes. And he has good reason! Not only did Hoss put them in the hole to begin with by gambling with the horse, he actually bet AGAINST their horse when it came to the race. And then there was Joe behaving in such an unbrotherly manner with his demands for "security" and his entering the race against his brothers more or less behind their backs. And he gets rewarded for it!

I love this episode! This shows all three of them obviously having fun while working on this episode. Ellen Corby is one of my favorite actress and she's wonderful here. Joe sure pulled one over on his brothers!

This episode is one of the funniest and most humorous. All actors have great scenes in here, also the guest stars, especially Percy Helton and Ellen Corby.

The facial expressions of the actors can be seen very well in the close-ups. :applause1

The dialogues are very good. Adam – trying to help his brother - always plays a little bit the superior and along with Hoss he persuades Joe. They tried to outdo each other. This looks like little boys having fun with competing against each other.

The last scene with Adam and Hoss is great! By the way I never liked this jacket, because it doesn't fit to his body.

Absolutely a favorite episode for me, too.

Personal favorites - probably Joe's comment to Hoss - "We grew up together, remember?" And as mentioned, the final scene. Adam's done gone over the line, and Hoss knows it well. :adam :hoss :joe

I love Enos and Cora Milford and wish we'd seen more of them over the series. The way Enos sneaks around so Cora won't find out what he's up to with the horse race makes me think that's how scheming Joe would be at that age. When Cora busts Enos in town for the horse race, I chuckle when he says to her, "Woman, why don't you go burn a pie!" :laughing

Joe and Enos are well-matched when it comes to scheming. But neither is a match for Hoss. :laughing

There's so many GREAT scenes in this episode!

One of my favorites is when Adam, Hoss, and Joe are drawing straws to see who gets to make some extra cash breaking horses over at the Milford place.

Great acting all around! :yes
There was very little action...everything was conveyed through facial expressionsand some quick gestures. Image
And the winner is.....JOE!!!!
