What happens when a Cartwright loves a girl who, in turn, favors his brother? And what does Regina from 'The Hopefuls' have to do with Melinda Banning from ‘The Lady From Baltimore’? When Joe fell for Melinda Banning, she, in turn, had her eye on Adam. Things were brought to a head when Joe found Melinda and Adam together in a rather compromising tableau. To head off the unavoidable clash between the two brothers, Ben quickly found some other place for Adam to be while the Bannings were still around. But what happened when Adam came home after the episode’s ending? This story, narrated by Hop Sing, tells us how Joe and Adam came to terms with the events of that episode—and how Regina from the episode ‘The Hopefuls’ tied into it all. (Titled 'A Family Affair' on other sites, but I felt the title should reflect more of Hop Sing's part in the story, thus the change.)
