For Adam getting tossed around like he was in that bunkhouse, He sure looked mighty fine standing in the street with Hoss watching Reagan ride off.. :yes
Memories and dreams are precious things, Adam. They are always there when you need them most. Ben to Adam in Elizabeth My Love.

I don't get this older handsomer brother notion H did have gal pals whom he courted like a gentleman and others he danced with Adam's attractiveness has nothing to do with how each brother treats and has relationships with women And if Adam has two brothers how can H be the "middle brother" ?

What we learn about Reagan Miller comes from third party sources Obviously Amelia has a grudge against her sister for "stealing" her beau Was it all Reagan or can the beau assume some responsibility? And what of SF? How much credibility is there is a gossip letter or locker room talk told to Adam in "confidence"? Can it be that the well intentioned word in his ear was meant to bolster Regan as a "good time party girl" ? I have to wonder just how big a lie are they telling?
The notion of older brother trying to "protect" his younger brother is laughable! Let's see now a buggy ride, an arranged date with Ben in tow and a dinner at the Ponderosa...oooh dangerous. What Adam may have believed could happen could not legally happen It's Ben who owns the ranch All that H has to offer is the land he owned Hoss Heaven That's it Finally H and Reagan weren't allowed to have a relationship without interference Everyone must have friends and people they can trust It's obvious that neither Amelia Ben nor Adam can be trusted and that's what lies at the bottom of Regan's frustration When it comes to the fairer sex Adam always leaves in a cloud of dust
Maybe H didn't quite hit Adam in the right spot to knock some sense into his head and the fail at the end is very noticable Adam should have reachef out to H for the hurt he caused not the other way around

Hoss is the middle brother because of birth order.

Ben first married Elizabeth. They had Adam.

Ben's second marriage was to Inger. They had Hoss.

Ben's third marriage was to Marie. They had Joe.

Birth order is Adam, Hoss, Joe.

I still don't know what attracted Hoss to Ragan.

Hoss is middle brother of three brothers. Adam is brother only when H is born Adam is older brother H is Adam's younger brother, his first brother LJ is Adam's second younger brother Neither A nor LJ have a middle brother, it's either two younger or two older.

Adam is more concerned with Hoss' emotions than with keeping the Ponderosa out of Regan's grasp. I can see that there is the question of credibility when it comes to letters and gossip but Regan proves all of it is correct. She attempts to seduce Adam and when that fails, "takes" her personality back and dresses in her flashy San Francisco clothes. She later tells Hoss that if they married, there would be many men with whom he would have to share her. That's what Adam fears, that Hoss will have a wife who will be chronically unfaithful and will cause him nothing but grief.

Is that Adam's business? That's questionable. Hoss is a grown man and who knows what would have happened had he married Regan. In a way, Adam deserves to be tossed about the bunk house for interfering. But he thought (or so we can surmise by the dialogue) that he didn't want Regan to treat Hoss as a passing amusement and then toss him aside, something she was reputed to have done with men before. But she denies that is her purpose and then tries to seduce Adam. I often wonder if the writers set it up so that the viewer could see that Regan would have no problem dallying with both brothers at the same time.

As for birth order, I think the issue is superlatives and perspective. In a set of three anything, there is always a middle but as @littlejulie said, Adam doesn't have a middle brother.

Adam has a younger brother (Hoss) and a youngest brother (Joe).
Hoss has an older brother (Adam) and a younger brother (Joe).
Joe has an older/elder brother (Hoss) and an oldest/eldest brother (Adam).

But maybe we should just abide by Hop Sing's nomenclature--number one son, number two son, and number three son. Heck of a lot easier.

I think Regan, by her actions, showed that the rumors about her were true. She knew she would eventually break Hoss's heart. I thank her for recognizing it and walking away from the relationship, which showed she did at least care for Hoss. (Unlike that Helen Layton from "The Courtship" :mad )

About Regan "stealing" Amelia's beau: yeah, I agree that the guy was responsible - he was the cheater. But it's human nature to blame the person who "steals" your beau/fiance/spouse and the other person is almost always blamed by the injured party. Hoss didn't blame Regan for kissing Adam; he blamed Adam.
