One of my favorite episodes. I laugh every time at the part when Hoss finds out Cal is a gal.

One of my favorite episodes too. I've always been a big fan of Stephanie Powers and she did an awesome job in this episode.

This episode was chock full of funny moments. What were some of your favorites?

Stephanie Powers was terrific as Cal! I love when Joe slings her over his shoulder and carries her up the stairs. Hoss gets quite a surprise when he brings her a towel! This is a great episode all the way through!

Calamity Over the Comstock is one of my favorite Bonanza episodes. .... all the C's played their parts so well and so humorously, especially Mike. There are too many good moments to list them all, but some for me are : When Joe says that he "took a wild guess" when Cal asked how he knew she was a girl :grin , Adam's smile when when Hoss finds out that the person in the tub upstairs is a "gal", Joe trying to look "tough" at the saloon with Doc Holliday, and Joe being "Mr. Macho" (after the fact) when Cal is playing at being in awe of him for facing down Doc Holiday. I could go on and on.

COTC never gets old, IMO. :thumbup

Another good one to discuss. I really liked this ep, everyone had a part in it; from Adam's coolness to Hoss' hysteria. I think Stefanie was a bit over the top with Cal, but it worked, and no one else could have played Cal, IMO. Also a treat for us PR gals because we know we would have the pleasure of watching PR and Stef in several other things in the years to come.
Love him forever....

Well, my favorite part was at the dance where Hoss cold cocked Joe, who fell back into Adam's arms. So well timed!

Stephanie Powers is so feminine, it's really pushing it to think that anyone wouldn't see she was a woman, regardless of the clothing!

Stefanie Powers was a suceeded cheeky Calamity. Joe is allowed to show fear (usually the Cartwrights are never afraid of others), but in this special case it was wise not to be the hot-blooded daredevil. But he isn´t hiding behind his Pa and elder brothers, he wants fighting his own courageous battle. Brave Joe! :thumbup
The idea with the muff was good. Just like a well-balanced team Adam and Hoss save their little brother from difficulties. Apparently it was not the first time. Do tough men have to drink punch?! :cheers Isn´t that a ladies´drink?

The Cartwrights do so at any party ... so it has to be a manly thing nevertheless. :lol
