Isn't that something? Ben even had trouble understanding that piece. I like what came next: the fatherly advice to his son, and Adam throwing his boot at Joe. :rotfl

I just finished watching this episode. I laughed practically all the way through it. The "Wedding March", the laughter, Joe falling down the stairs, Ben trying to stifle his own laughter... this is simply a great pick-me-up.

It's just one of those episodes where you can't not laugh! Especially when you know what's coming! :rotfl

The funny part is that it was true! Adam WAS irresistable to a lot of women. Of course having your little brother tease you about it can't be much fun!

As much as I love this episode it is one of those stories where the writers play fast and loose with historical facts. The show debuted in what was supposed to be 1859 when the Comstock Lode was discovered and Virginia City was founded.

But from the way the stories are told, you'd think Viriginia City had been around for years. In this episode Little Joe "attended" school in town and Miss Abigail was his teacher. What town? LOL Joe would've been in school ten years ago before there WAS a Virginia City!

Miss Abigail also says that Adam used to come to the schoolhouse to pick up his little brother. From the characters ages, we can surmise that Joe was born when Adam was about twelve. So by the time Joe was attending ANY little red school house, Adam would have gone back east to attend college. Owing to the time it took to travel across the country, Adam was probably gone for about six years. Of course he could have been back at the Ponderosa by the time Joe was about twelve or so.

Sorry, just my brain working overtime on minutiae! :grin One of my favorite episodes though!

Joe would've only been ten when Adam graduated college, so I think that fits the story line better. As for overthinking it, if we, as devoted fans (and analysts :laughing ) didn't do it, then where would our stories be?

I live to overthink the lives of the Cartwrights! They need fans like me to get the facts of their lives straight. :ha

In a way, wouldn't it be sort of like a sworn duty that we have to the Cartwrights? Kind of like we owe them something for sharing their good and bad times with us?

There are so many funny scenes in this episode I can't pick a favorite one-all of the above! I love when Joe and Hoss are humming the wedding march and Joe gets Adam's shoe! Definitely a favorite of mine. I love episodes with all of them together.
