I figured that may have been the case, but I just hadn't noticed before. It had occurred to me that Michael may have called Lorne Dad off and on the set. It's charming.

Hoss or Adam could've returned home and said something like, "Wait until you see what's in the evening paper about our house guest!"
Joe grabs the paper and starts reading aloud, unaware that Mr. Dickens just walked into the room.
So many things on BZ just happened too quickly considering that they were relying on horses and not cars. They managed to get places a lot faster than normal. Of course, it was a show and the whole episode couldn't be about a long ride to or from town.

This is a quote from Jonathan Harris about his appearance on Bonanza. I copied it from Ponderosa Scenery.daisy60 wrote: ↑Fri Apr 15, 2016 2:42 amThe episode is ok but not a favorite. What I do like reading about Jonathon Harris's view on "those naughty Cartwright boys" While Jonathon was telling the story, every time the cameras were on them, Hoss and Joe were sitting nicely, listening, but as soon as the camera wasn't on they were making faces at Jonathon, trying to get him to laugh and mess up his story! Those naughty boys!
In an interview shortly before his death, Jonathan Harris looked back to his 'Bonanza' show he guested in:
"One of my absolute favorite parts was Charles Dickens in the 'Bonanza' episode 'A Passion for Justice'," Harris said. "But I must tell you," he continued, "the 'Cartwrights' were very naughty. I gave a most important speech about artistic integrity and the protection of one's creative property, very serious, and those naughty boys were all sitting in front of me, off camera, making the most absurd faces and noises, doing their best to make me laugh. But, old pro that I am, I would not give them the satisfaction." He continued, "Pernell, I thought, was very foolish. And I told him so. 'Take their money, Pernell! Take it and build your own theater.' " Harris concluded, "You know, the one true artist of the bunch was Dan Blocker. I enjoyed working with him very much."
