Episodes that make you uncomfortable

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.

Can't remember the name of the episode off hand, but the one where Richard Anderson is the salesman/woman attacker/killer. Being female, that one makes me really uncomfortable.
This episode has some of Lucas's best acting! There is a huge pink elephant in the seaver house! At time in history, an unmarried man did not visit a married female without a third adult being present. Lucas was there for a reason not talked about in *im*polite company. Cora was trying to be the hostess and pretend everything was normal.

Ordeal: as a lifelong desert dweller, albeit in an urban area, this is scariest and most realistic episode for me. This one hits close to home.

I bet it does Dana. Cowgirl has a great article at the ranch about how they cleaned or filtered the sand they used in the sandstorm.
