326.) The Wish
         March 9, 1969
         Written by:
 Michael Landon
         Directed by: Michael Landon
         Lost Episode

         Hoss spends his two-month vacation helping a black family get their farm in shape, and dealing with racism in the neighboring town.  Michael Landon's favorite episode.

         Guest Stars: Sam Davis...Ossie Davis,...John O. Davis...George Spell,...Craig...Roy Jenson,...Jesse Davis...Harry Page,...Beth Davis...Barbara Parrio,...Mr. Titus...Charles Seel,...Johnson...Jerry Summers,...Bill Clark...( uncredited; stunt double for Dan Blocker ),...Lee Duncan...(uncredited; stunt double for Ossie Davis).

         Trivia: Ossie Davis making his only appearance, fine actor and performer.  He was also a guest on the 1991 Michael Landon tribute: "Laughter and Love".  Roy Jenson and Jerry Summers return, in the roles of the two town biggots.

         Stunt Trivia: The climactic barn fight in this episode was expertly choreographed by Michael Landon. Even though he didn't believe in violence, his fights would showcase the great physical strength in the characters he'd write in a script. When he'd stage the fights in the shows he wrote and directed, it was as realistic as they could get.

         His expertise as a good athlete only made this more of a reality in the fights he and other actors would be involved in during filming. Ossie Davis, Roy Jenson and Jerry Summers did exactly as Michael instructed them, as this was how he envisioned it in his mind. The great physical strength and acting of all three men was as realistic as it ever got. One of the greatest fights ever filmed for the series. In the barn fight, Lee Duncan doubles Ossie Davis in three bit parts as the fight starts with Jerry Summers.

         Trivia: Stock footage of the Ponderosa Ranch replica seen in the establishing shot in act one.

         Stunt Trivia: Bill Clark doubles Hoss in a bit part when he runs over and beats up the two bullies who are persecuting Sam's son on the main street.

         Music Trivia: The theme music that would serve as the main title for "Little House on the Prairie" is heard in the final scene of this episode.  It serves as a leit motif in the Wagnerian fashion, composed and scored by David Rose.

         Joe is shocked to see his ex-fiancee, Emily Anderson, in Virginia City.  He had met her in Monterey five years earlier, and they had planned to get married.  But her strict father thought Joe was too wild, and he burned all of Joe's letters before Emily saw them.  Emily and Joe are still in love with each other, but Emily conveniently forgets to tell Joe that she is now Emily McPhail, the wife of Deputy Marshal Wade McPhail.  Wade is on assignment with Marshal Calhoun to help guard a $90,000 currency shipment.

         Emily tells Wade they have to leave Virginia City immediately, since Joe's presence might interfere with their marriage, but he refuses to leave.  He finds Joe and Emily embracing and engages with Joe in a savage fight, almost killing him at gunpoint.  That is the first Joe hears of Emily's marriage.  That is by no means the end of her lies, which eventually get Joe shot and nearly framed for murder.

         Guest Stars: Emily Anderson-McPhail...Beth Brickell,...Wade McPhail...Ron Hayes,...Dr. Lewis...Harry Holcombe,...Dr. Stebbins...Byron Webster,...Storekeeper...Charles P.

         Directed by: Leon Benson

         Joe and Candy travel to Butlerville and learn that one of Ben's closest friends is burning out new settlers, whom he regards as squatters.  Candy's old ex-flame is married to Jess Parker, who always saw Candy as a rival in the past, but things have changed with both men and Jess' wife Barbara.  Cal Butler is the real problem: he will stop at nothing to keep Parker from testifying alive.

         Trivia: This is the last episode in which Ben tells Joe to "take his feet off the table".  After we first see the opening of this episode, where Cal Butler and his men, burning down the Harris home, fades into the fireplace inside the Ponderosa.  Candy and Ben are conversing; Candy's friends are in trouble, need help, and Ben gives him the time off he needs.  At Ben's suggestion, and mentioning of Cal Butler as an "old friend", Joe agrees to accompany Candy to Butlerville, unaware of Butler's doings.

         After Candy exits the front door, Joe has his feet on the coffee table, and is reading a book, where he has been since we first saw him, in the scene.  In arguably, one of the funniest and touching moments, Ben asks his son, "Hey, Joe, do you know the difference between a table and an ottoman?" Joe replies, "Sure I do!", with Ben replying to him, "Then take your feet off the table!".  Hoss, eating an apple, just looks onwards, with a slight grin, with that suggests, "he'll never learn to do that!".

 Thomas Thompson, Suzanne Clauser
         Directed by: Herschel Daugherty

         Feeling unloved, a Marshal's daughter runs off with a Ponderosa hand her father thinks may be related to the man that shot him.  The scene in which Dan Blocker and Bonnie Bedelia go on a picnic gives a hint of what their scenes in 1972's "Forever" would have been like had Blocker lived.

         Tobias and April Horn are both brother and sister, who pose as wealthy business people.  They say that they are interested in buying cattle from Ben.  The Horns turn out to be clever and insideous con artists, with the help of a sly and crafty former army scout, Mr. Spain.  He has water and food caches planted across the whole Nevada desert, and has poisoned all the waterholes.

         After the Horns' rob the Virginia City bank and Ben is seriously wounded, they flee across the desert, Hoss and Joe in pursuit.  The posse has turned south, tricked by the Horns and Mr. Spain.  The only thing they are not counting on is Joe's determination to catch them and bring them back to Virginia City.
