Episode Summary

EDIT
Apprentice Doc
AIRED:
Doc is awakened in the middle of the night, chlorophormed, kidnapped and taken to an outlaw camp. Clint and Augie are bank robbers who have recently hooked up with Pitt Campbell and his friend Randy. Their plans for an upcoming bank job are foiled when Randy breaks a leg. Before Doc wakes up the next morning Pitt tells Clint and Augie to go on with their plans and to forget about him and Randy. Clint's not happy about it, but agrees and instructs Pitt to "take care of Doc" when he's done with him. When Doc awakens he finds a rather professional job of setting and splinting Randy's leg has been performed by Pitt. Doc gives Pitt some final instructions on caring for Randy and then heads back for Dodge. The following day Clint and Augie rob the bank in Meade, Kansas, killing three people. After getting Randy back home for proper care, Pitt goes to Dodge and asks Doc if he'll teach him medicine. After some debate Doc agrees. Soon they are spending day and night "reading medicine" together and Pitt's training is coming along famously. Then one evening Pitt stops into the Long Branch and sees Clint and Augie at the bar. Clint then catches Pitt in an alley and pistol-whips him for not killing Doc when he was told to. Clint and Augie then take Pitt to their hideout. Clint then sends Augie into town to fetch Doc. He plans to kill them both!moreless
