The writer of this episode must have been thinking of Ben's three wives when he made up the backgrounds of the three mail-order brides: one is from Boston, one from the Midwest, and one from New Orleans!

I love this episode! I like when Hoss tries to sneak out the door and Joe yanks his arm and brings him back. Lemonade anyone?

I never thought of that, but it actually kinda correlates! Now just put the wife to the bride:
Libby Spencer's like Elizabeth,
Yvette Deveroe's like Marie,
But Annie Slocum's like Inger...that one's weird. :lol

IMO, they're all pretty weird! If Ben's wives had been like that he'd have run for the hills rather than marry any of them! :ha

Ben and Joe in perfect unison: "Like a bIRD?"

One of the comedies, that's for sure. It reminded me almost of The Rifleman episode, "Mail Order Bride" where two pranksters send away for a mail order bride, and sign Lucas' name to it, instead. :rotfl
Wait a minute, wait a minute. What you're saying is that at your age, you don't know the difference between a girl and a horse?
