It is a very telling moment when he gently pushes her away with the back of his hand instead of using his fingers or both hands.
Adam should practice that more often. It could save him a world of trouble!
Didn’t he get accused anyway? And Roy believed her! :lol
Roy really gave her the benefit of the doubt!

Good old Roy does seem to have a soft spot where tearful young ladies are concerned. It's like he loses the ability to reason through a situation and can't imagine that they could be capable of ulterior motives.

Thankfully this particular young lady had a conscience. Mary is really the hero in the end; if she hadn't had the guts to confess her lies and her husband's guilt, it would have been pretty difficult to pin the crime on Bill.

...and I suddenly realized something -- Bill Enders' walk is distinctive for its rhythm. You can hear it.


In a world where a man's eyes are what keeps him alive (gunfight, rattlesnake, ornery horse), he might have trouble identifying a sound that he recognized.
A gun is only a tool, like your jackknife; no better 'n no worse than the man who handles it. Any man can pull a trigger. It's not hard. But it takes a big man not to pull one. -- Adam Cartwright

it's subtle, but it's there... and it makes sense when he says he knows Bill same as Ben would know Hoss or Joe, without seeing a face.

I watched The Ride again tonight for the nth time... There's so much to appreciate about Adam in this one that's it's impossible to keep track. Lots of horse riding action - all good stuff. Even when Roy Coffee doubted him, Adam's family stuck by him. Lots of courage, virtue, and good looks all in one man (and the whole fam damily). :adam :thumbup

Somewhere in an interview David Dortort says this is one of his favorite episodes along with The Crucible.

This one's better written than many of the Adam episodes IMNVHO.
