Would you stand up to Lucas?

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.

Would you stand up to Lucas?

Post by cowgirl » Mon Jul 10, 2017 10:18 am

Would you stand up to Lucas, but some have. How many can we name?

I guess I'll start with family.

In The Surveyors - Mark stood his grounds and believed he was right, enough to run away, even though it was to the barn.

Mark believed something was wrong that Elliot didn't say good-bye to him and he believe Len and Charley were up to something, but he couldn't convince Lucas.

Mark: “Did you miss me?”

Lucas: "Did I miss you? Let me put it this way. I love you more than anything else in the whole world."

"The Rifleman hits the 'Mark' every week on abc."

Good one Dana!

The woman aren't afraid to stand up to Lucas, probably because they know Lucas won't shoot them.

Image  Conflict - Ben Todd wasn't afraid to call Lucas out, twice. In town and outside of town. But Lucas did repay him with an apology and saving his life.

Who's next?

Good job dude!

To look at Pennebroke, would have ever guessed?

Simon Battle, to me he is Lucas' equal.

There was also Claire Carney. Lucas told a parable about a wife who made her husband do something he did not want to do. Her wonderfully snarky retort: "that's a pretty story, Lucas. Did you make it up?"
