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!”
Be careful what you wish for-you might get it! Lucas tells Micah he hopes Mark did not get kept after school again. Moments later, Lucas is humiliated and incensed to see Mark as the leader of the pack taunting and tormenting colley.
