#86 - The Schoolmaster

There is always a lesson to learn when you watch “The Rifleman.” There is no better teacher for Mark than his father, Lucas McCain. Lucas teaches Mark from “The Bible” and from experience. Sometimes the lessons are hard ones and at times rather easy ones. They are still lessons learned! Let’s discuss the lessons learned in each episode. “Every lesson you learn makes you a better partner.” “Just remember the lessons!”

Mark learns that if he leaves school in a huff, he should go hang out with Micah or Millie for awhile, instead of going straight home to pa!

Why didn't Mr. Griswold chastise billy for giving Mark the candy?

If Billy's mother was so strapped for cash she had to buy a pair of shoes for each of her six children one month at a time, how would she have the money to replace the book Billy ruined? My guess is Lucas quietly paid for the book to spare Mrs. Davis embarrassment and worry, then had a private man-to- man talk with Billy. I bet Billy never vandalized anything ever again!

There sure was a lot of lesson learned in this episode, by everyone.
"Keep your 'sites' on The Rifleman"
"The Rifleman hits the 'Mark' every week on abc."

Lucas's selective memory: Lucas tells Mr. Griswold Mark never gave him any trouble until Mr. Griswold started teaching at the school. Lucas must have forgotten Rebecca snipe, the scene at the boarding house, the surveyors, hazel, and the charity day race.
