Lucas's expression seems to day " Lou, you know he is *my boy* and you do know *my boy* is only 14." I don't really have a problem with Lucas and Lou. She seems besotted, but he seems to think of her as a friend with occasional benefits. Lou and Mark are a little more than a decade apart, and I do find her trying to be a mother figure to him disconcerting. As Lucas said of Rebecca snipe, Lou makes Mark a better sister than mother. The looks Mark gives her sometimes aren't always brotherly. Like Lucas's ideal , Lou does have crimson hair and can ride a,horse.markisddg:55231 wrote:All very funny and so true!
In Incident at Line Shack Six when Mark is alone with Lou in the ranch Lucas walks in and Mark and Lou look guilty as they are hiding Johnny Wing in the barn.
The look on Lucas's face makes one believe he wonders what they are up to and maybe Lou was teaching Mark a few things about love making to make Lucas jealous. However it was a family show.
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.

Mark: pa , don't you think we need some more just in case the surgery takes a long time, and Vickie and I get tired and need a room? Lucas gives him the look- but with a bit of amusement. Lucas: are you worried about your daughter, battle? Simon: not really. Lucas: you should be. My boy is a stud!
