A bittersweet Ben romance that's doomed (for the Cartwrights is there any other kind?) :sad Too bad Katherine's son could not have delayed his return until after Ben and Katherine married. They had a brief interlude of happiness but it was not destined to last.

I have to confess though, the title of this episode always makes me laugh. Does anyone remember the old Hanna-Barbera cartoons? One of my favorites was Augie Doggy and Doggy Daddy. Doggy Daddy would always say in his Jimmy Durante sounding voice . "Augie, my son, my son". I'm so glad Katherine's son was named Eden and not August.

I like this episode because I like Katherine. Even though she has a HUGE blind spot when it comes to her son - and what mother doesn't? - Ben is besotted enough to try to hide Eden until he can insure a fair trial.

Interesting trivia about Teresa Wright - she was nominated for Oscars for her first 3 movie roles:
- Best Supporting Actress for The Little Foxes (1941)
- Best Supporting Actress for Mrs. Miniver (1942)
- Best Actress for The Pride of the Yankees (1942)

Yes, she was nominated for both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress in 1942! She won the Best Supporting Actress for Mrs. Miniver. But she never received another Oscar nomination.

Here's a site with some information on her: http://www.altfg.com/film/teresa-wright/

I enjoy episodes where Ben has a love interest, but this woman brought nothing but her troubled life to the Ponderosa. The romance was doomed from the beginning and Ben should have seen it coming. Adam shoots those looks across the dinner table and Ben senses there's troubling news that Adam has to spill. Too bad Adam didn't tell Ben he was making a HUGE mistake wanting to marry this woman. Battered, beaten and broken once more, our beloved Ben stands outside with a broken heart to bid Katherine a final farewell.

Katherine seemed like a sweet lady but unfortunately her wayward son came between them. Even when Eden shot Ben, Eden was the one Katherine ran to! She didn't seem concerned about Ben. :duh :shrug

When I mention Huckleberry Hound and Angie dogie and Dogie daddy, most people don’t know what I am talking about. I am glad to know someone else has seen those shows from Hanna Barbera. :very happy

Yes, Adam always brings home the bad news from town. I liked this character for Pa. she seemed the right age. So many ladies post Adam seemed too young for Pa. However, this seemed so wrong for the Cartwrights not to turn Eden in and get him a decent lawyer. Just saying, it’s not what they usually do.

You remember when any of these characters, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, really any Hanna Barbera character would wake up, stretch, yawn and smack their lips? I still do that to this day.
