I watched this episode today - can't say I remember it well from years ago. The best part about it for me was watching Hoss lecture the good folks of Virginia City, and Joe trying to put his arm around his much larger brother as they walked away after the contest.

Also very sad to watch as I thought Dan looked good in the episode, and it was only a few months before he died. Bless him.

Cute episode. The mother who's baby won didn't think her baby was actually the prettiest baby. So sad that Dan died soon after this. It still brings me to tears.
