I love it when Ben tells Adam to come along with him to Clementine. A strong and self-confident man like Ben Cartwright, who handles easy with bad guys and three stubborn sons is afraid of a woman! I love it!

Just finished it. It is never explained what Clementine did to Ben that night after he drew her name out of the fishbowl, but it must have been heavy duty if the mere thought of doing business with her infuriates him and he needs Adam for emotional support when he comes to her house. She says it herself when Ben declines her offer of a cup of sassafras tea: She doesn't take no for an answer. -- For some reason, I loved how she twirled Ben's bandana between her fingers. I love Clementine, in fact. And I would drink sassafras "tea" with her. While I normally hold herbal infusions in contempt (Don't you have any TEA, I once asked somebody who had stocked the pantry with fennel teabags) but I'm curious as to how real sassafras tastes. I tried Root Beer and couldn't make out any particular taste except "sweet". Sassafras or no sassafras, this woman is her own man, and she is not too shy to open the door with her curlers still in.

The story itself is a bit silly, but in an endearing way. I laughed every time another character is revealed to be a crook of some sort.

I don't think Clementine infuriates Ben; I think he scares her to death! :laughing She's an aggressive female, and none of the Cartwrights seem to know how to handle that.

I've always thought that Ben/Clementine would be an interesting pairing. Imagine Clementine in the ranch house, putting her special touch on everything! That would be one way to get the boys into their own homes! :rotfl

Oh ellen, that's funny and scary all at the same time.
Could you see if she did her display of her late husband in the great room.

I'd rather not, thank you very much.
Is that all you can think about at a time like this, cake???

Touch nothing!
