Is there anything sweeter than Mark...

Mark McCain was as important to the show as the Rifleman himself. Let's talk about his sweet nature and sensitivity. Always learning from Lucas, sometimes the hard way, fear of losing his only parent, times he got into trouble, their respect for each other, and how he was portrayed as a motherless kid but had the insight and determination of a disciplined adult.

...teaching Abby to read and write in The Quiet Fear? It's heart-melting when he winks at Luke and Abby writes "Papa" and gives it to her father.

Mark would make a good teacher. He was really kind and patient with Abby.

Yes, that apple pie he loves so much! https://youtu.be/DfnRxDVCPB8?t=811

Brice Hornsby was also sweet toward Abby, once he got to know her.

Do you ever wonder how Mark had any teeth at all? He sure did suck down the candy. I'm surprised he only lost one tooth in the whole series. :laughingcowboy:

Yes, I was thinking this very thing when I was typing up my last post! My father loved watching the Rifleman, but he was very strict about our sugar intake. I remember for 6 people, my mother would bake an 8x8 pan of chocolate cake, which was the only dessert we had for the week. Desserts were not a daily part of our meals.

Refresh my memory: In what episode did Mark lose a tooth?
