Mark's Friends

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.

In The Marshal Mark mentions his friend Arch Quinn who watched Mark try some whiskey.
"Keep your 'sites' on The Rifleman"
"The Rifleman hits the 'Mark' every week on abc."

Here's a really obscure one. In A Sporting Chance Mark mentions Jimmy Daniels who was calling his Pa a chicken because he wouldn't duel with Jeremy.

Mark's friends didn't seem to have a good influence on him - getting him to drink whiskey and smoke cigars.

How about in Squeeze Play Mark mentions how Kenny Wheeler is saying things about Lucas because his pa wants to sell his land and Lucas is in his way.

How about Lorrie in Old Tony and you might say that Don Mahoney the Dead Eye Kid was his friend. Mark seemed almost more mature than Don being new to the west.
