#20 - The Deadeye Kid

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!”

Interesting stuff here Dana.

It was such a good phrase that they even made a movie out of it and it wasn't even a western.....

Was don a dandy or a street kid? For the most part, he seemed to be just a big talker and his worldliness was just for show. Also, he was pretty clean-even after being thrown from at least two wagons.

Don tells Mark he took the garter off a girl. Who does he think he's kidding? (Besides Mark) I bet Don has as much experience with girls as Mark does!

Lucas disapproved of Donas and thought he was a bad influence on Mark because he was an older brash city kid. However, don never told Mark his father would soon get killed (Freddie) or persuade him to take a fall (Billy).
