The episode that always makes me wonder if Hoss is a little nuts. Or does he just need glasses? He rejects the advances of Nancy!! The girl was gorgeous. WHat's up with that :shrug

But his newfound friendship with Waldo is great. I love George Kennedy. I've loved George Kennedy since I saw him in Airport. "Clear the runway!!"

Another interesting tale of how the Cartwrights side with the underdog and are willing to help a stranger.

I like Adam and Joe's list of others that Hoss has helped over the years, like the guy who "helped himself" to their silverware.

Ben sums up Hoss's character in one sentence, "He's got a big heart."

Waldo was quite a character! My favorite scene was Hoss teaching Waldo how to square dance. They dance so well together, as Adam and Joe, watching thought so also. Hoss does have a big heart and often takes people in to help them. That's just pure Hoss.
