Parallels in the same episode

It has been almost 60 years since The Rifleman first visited our living rooms. Grab your boots and saddle and get ready to ride as we revisit the McCain's! Lucas, Mark & Micah gather here to talk about The Rifleman. What better place to discuss The Rifleman then his own front porch.

When the new Orleans menace makes the threat against Mark, Lucas stays up and anxiously and protectively watches Mark sleep. After peace is restored, Lucas relaxes by adoringly observing his sleeping boy.

In the surveyors, Lucas tells Mark "you can't judge a man by the tone of his voice" and that men living alone can get on each othrrs' nerves. He is speaking about Len and Charlie, but he could be describing himself and Mark.

Face of yesterday : Mrs. Clay tells Lucas Simon is the image of his father, her late husband. Mark strongly resembles Margaret. Hank clay is jealous of his stepson simon. Hank also says that Mrs clay would not let him be a full father to simon. Lucas, Mark, and Millie have a mutual admiration society going. If Lucas and Millie did marry, would Lucas be able to relinquish any of the care and control of Mark to her?

In the woman, Lucas scoffs when ms. Adams tells him women's suffrage is a very serious matter. Later, Lucas is incredulous when Hattie tells him she has never been more serious in her life than she is about women voting.
