New Orleans Menace episode

I thought it would be neat to have a place to discuss "The Rifleman" episodes. If there is an episode you wish to discuss in length, please feel free to post it here.

New Orleans Menace episode

Post by NorthRidge »

MeTV ran the Now Orleans Menace episode today. It is probably the 15th time I've seen as is true with almost all the episodes I have watched.

Something I forgot was the scene when Tiffauges mentions he deposited $85,000 in gold in the Northfork bank.

As we all know, Xavier shoots and kills Tiffauges at the McCain ranch. I was wondering what happened to the $85,000? Maybe his sidekicks were able to claim it? If so, that would explain why they rode off very happy! In addition to being free of Tiffauges.

Yes, funny after all these years watching that episode, the thought just came to me a few days ago.

No mention was made of the money being stolen so someone has a right to it. I think Lucas should have be awarded $1,000 for standing up to Tiffauges and being threatened.

When you had posted this, I also thought about what you had said. Never gave the money a thought. Apparently the writers didn't either. :laughingcowboy: I will post something about this in the chit chat worth mentioning section. Thanks!

I was watching this today so I could pick out the exact place where the $85,000 was mentioned. As I was playing the video Tiffauge tells Lucas that he did not yet introduces himself. After Lucas introduces Mark & himself, Tiffauge says something, I think in Spanish. Does anybody know what he said?

Hi everybody! Good to be back! Took a little sabbatical from the ranch for personal reasons.

Do we know for sure Tiffauge did not have a wife and/or kids? Back then, how much paperwork was required? Did John Hamilton have an obligation to try to notify the next-of-kin? Did Phillipe Tiffauge aka Phillip Simpson show up in North Fork to claim the money?

Good point Dana, that would have been interesting to find out. What would John Hamilton have done, definitely the right thing!
