I have a love for this ep because there is a bit where the sheriff says something like: "Your boy ain't getting out of here." And he was talking about Candy and Ben didn't correct him. It happens a few other times and I don't know, just is nice to me.

The sheriff in this episode is incredibly creepy! In my opinion he's right up there with Poole from "The Thunder Man" and Clarence Bolling from "The Smiler." Ugh!

I love how Joe purposely gets himself thrown in jail so he can help Candy. And Ben approves!

The sheriff was a little devious, for sure. I don't know if he was quite as creepy as Poole, or Bolling, but he was bad.

One of my favorite scenes though, was when one of the hands sneaks back into camp and has just settled in thinking he made it, and Ben walks up. Just that shot of the hand opening his eyes to see the boots, then travel up to the face, of Ben! :laughing

I love that when Candy is thrown in jail Joe ends up right there with him. That's a real friend. All of the Cartwrights were there to help Candy against a crooked sheriff.
