Murdock: (to B.A.) We're like brothers on that Bonanza show, ain't we? Go ahead. Can I call you Hoss?
Bonanza ran on NBC from 1959-1973. "Hoss" was the nickname of Eric Cartwright, the middle son, played by Dan Blocker.
Actor Lorne Greene appeared in Bonanza as ranch owner "Ben Cartwright"; he would later star as "Commander Adama" alongside A-Team star Dirk Benedict (Lieutenant Templeton 'Faceman' Peck) in the 1978 version of Sci-Fi show BattlestaR GALACTICA. Benedict played another Lieutenant in Galactica, that of Lieutenant Starbuck. Starbuck, like Faceman, loved the ladies.
