Biggest letdown?

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.

How will Lucas handle Mark getting mutually serious with a girl?
I think Lucas would have wanted Mark to have the same kind of love and marriage he and Margaret had.

Lucas seemed to be proud of the fact that Mark was interested in girls -
except Sally.
Lucas teased Mark about Lucille Bandy and Lucas was gonna take Mark and Lorrie to supper at the hotel.

Lucas thought Mark was a stud. {out-take from "Gun Fire".} :laughing:

Lucas to Mark: "I love you more than anything else in the whole world."

Apology accepted. :happycowboy:

I find it interesting that you see Lucas as being jealous of several people, and I see him as being a concerned parent.
One of the things I love about the show are that the characters are multi-faceted people who sometimes have mixed emotions. There is no doubt Lucas is a concerned and conscientious father, but I think occasionally he felt a twinge of jealousy for others whom Mark admired.
