This is my absolute favorite episode along with the Wooing of Abigail Jones. I love the dynamic between the brothers. I was watching it today on TV Land and I would suggest to anyone to watch it on YouTube instead because TV Land eliminated a lot of scenes that I absolutely loved in order to fit it into the time slot. A first time viewer of the episode would not know what was missing but if you've seen this episode any number of times (like I have) you'd realize some funny things are left out. Great episode and I hope the guys enjoyed making it.

I love Adam but it was great to see Hoss win for a change.

It's a favorite episode of mine as well. Hoss and Joe are the Abbott & Costello of the Ponderosa. It's a fun episode. I love Ben's reaction to his son's attention to the senorita.

None of the brothers were interested in Dolores as a serious romance and yet...Adam did enjoy the view. :laughing

Oh, Adam is wonderful in this episode. It is in fact one of my faves where he's concerned. I call him the charming Cartwright. Whether or not he had specific ideas on Delores doesn't matter. That he can win her affections does. Adam... Yum...

I think this episode is the Cartwright brothers at their most adorable. Completely irresistible, every single one of them.

This was just on MeTV & I'm still laughing. There were so many funny lines, I can't keep track of them all. I love how when the saloon owner asked Adam who was going to pay for the damages, Adam just said, "I don't know. I'm just a guitar player." Ben's last line was funny too. When Adam & Joe asked him how they were going to get the bull back to Jigger Thurman, Ben just said, "Try serenading it with your guitar." :ha :rotfl

I had the impression that was a backhanded compliment from Ben, because he was going to have to pay for the damages.

A funny episode nonetheless to see how far three brothers would go, competing over one girl. :lol
