I re-watched this episode tonight and couldn't help thinking Tessa was more blind at the end, when she could see Joe and decided she wasn't in love with him, than when she couldn't see! :laughing How could she not fall in love with that man? :shrug (Maybe she was a secret Adam or Hoss gal? :grin)
What, are you practicing to be a burglar, bettin' that kind of money on a two-card draw?Joe, "Queen High"

She must have been a Hossgal since Marlyn Mason also played in Ponderosa Birdman! I would have jumped at the chance to marry Joe. :wink

Tessa turned out to be "a fine girl" - as Ben would say.

But Ben, again... what were you thinking? Letting the wedding proceed that far was so risky - what if she hadn't changed her mind at the last minute? And leaving Joe at the altar was embarrassing to the entire family.

What was Ben thinking indeed. Little bit of a shocker for me that Ben didn't give that family the old heave ho. This is one trait of Ben's that I'm not thrilled with - he's too trusting. In a case like this one, his trust was overboard.
Is that all you can think about at a time like this, cake???

Touch nothing!
