Well - We kinda have an example of how Lucas would handle that in
"A Young Man's Fancy". Lucas didn't jump to any conclusions until he got more information on the situation. Lucas went directly to Milly (not Sally) to find out what she knew.

Lucas didn't want Mark to get hurt but he knew Mark had to figure this out for himself. Lucas was probably remembering what he went through when he had his first crush. :)
Lucas knew his son very well and how to handle most situations with Mark.

Lucas handled this situation very well because Mark wasn't emotionally scarred and was able to accept Sally as just a friend. Whewww! :sweatdrop:

I gotta say - Mark sure can take a punch. :lol:

Good point Deneen....That was a neat 'fight scene'. it was neat Mark was 'nursing' the situation for Sally.

Mark also fought with Don Grady in The Patsy (he died 2012) and his brother Bobby in The Second Witness were there any other fight scenes just between Mark and someone?

"TinHorn" ~ Mark was in a fight with Willie. Mark lost that fight.
He even had to say "uncle". :sadcowboy:
To make matters worst - Willie gave Mark a nuggler for an apology.

Mark had plenty of fights with adult men. He was always fighting a man trying to protect Lucas from being hurt or killed. Poor - Poor Mark!

Mark was in more fights than Micah. :lol:

I TOTALLY forgot about the TinHorn one. thanks for reminding me!! yep, Little Mark was a 'scrapper. I bet Johnny really had fun fighting with his brother in the one episode. both of them were being paid to fight each other. sweet
