The strongest jewel is the diamond, which (I think) is why it's used as an engagement ring. The emerald and ruby are the next two strongest jewels. In other words, no way would a real ruby shatter.CowgirlAtHeart wrote:Was it really a fake, or did the woman just think it was?

You would think I'd know that since the ruby is my birthstone (July)! But glad to see that some other poster knows!
Very funny episode. I don't usually eat pancakes, but this episode makes me hungry for them.
This ep has one of my favorite character actors, Olan Soule. He sits and eats and eats flapjacks a lot longer than Hoss. Never underestimate your opponent Hoss!

- Who is your favorite Bonanza character?: Ben and Adam
1.) broken by his boot when he flung it at Hoss and missed
2.) when Joe jumped on it in the back of the wagon
3.) in the saloon, when he dropped it to keep Hoss from eating a lemon meringue pie
4.) when Ben sat on it after Joe had hidden underneath the couch cushions
5.) when the windowpane he was holding was shot by Trager
6.) I almost forgot the one he broke when he jumped through it to stop Trager from getting away.
Ben to Little Joe in "Day of the Dragon."
