  • Charles finally admits that he's nothing but a dumb, clod-hopping farmer.

    Before any die-hard LHOP-ers indignantly give this review a thumbs-down, please see through my summary that it is satire. ;) Of course, Charles does proclaim himself to be a "dumb farmer" in this episode, through impassioned tears and a quivering lower lip. Besides the fact that this one has it all - sexuality, scandal, and betrayal - it is also one of those episodes my sister and I, while we were still living at home, just had too much fun adding different lines for the characters. For example, when the saloon girl arrives at Charles' hotel room to offer her services, we ad lib Pa telling Mary, "Why don't you run down to the livery and fetch some water...and take at least ten minutes to do so." Later, when John "Pretty Boy" Jr. is discovered to be a two-timing punk, what Pa should have said to Mary when he found her sobbing on her bed is, "Darlin', hush, he's a journalist now. Of course he lost all his integrity!"
