#47 panic

There is always a lesson to learn when you watch “The Rifleman.” There is no better teacher for Mark than his father, Lucas McCain. Lucas teaches Mark from “The Bible” and from experience. Sometimes the lessons are hard ones and at times rather easy ones. They are still lessons learned! Let’s discuss the lessons learned in each episode. “Every lesson you learn makes you a better partner.” “Just remember the lessons!”

On a more nerdy philosophical note, could this episode be a metaphor for some serious events of the 1950's , such as the fear of integration, McCarthyism, and the polio epidemic?

We see some of chuck's best acting in this episode. Lucas slumps when he sees Mr. Cass. His body language groans " oh, no, expletive! Not now!" He is irately patient when Mr. Cass keeps asking questions.
