#56 - Mail Order Groom

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!”

Another line that surprisingly made it past the censors: "growing up Mark, you'll learn you can't judge the size of a manby the size of his mouth!"

If the profit. Brothers were after Isabel, why didn't she lock her door? Even if Micah did not know about the profit brothers bothering Isabel , why did Micah not get after the brothers for their other shenanigans?

Lucas looked as if he wishes the ground would swallow him up whole when Mark tactlessly stated Isabel was the only old maid he and the other kids did not make fun of and that Mr. Jupiter was lucky to get anyone.

In the boarding house, Mark knew exactly what he was saying and doing. In mail order groom, Mark was being his usually guileless and tactless self!

He knew what he was saying, yes, because it was something he was told to do....
but he did not know that the "rules"
did not apply to adults as it did for kids... And that it was not up to him to
correct an adult.

In the boarding house, I felt Mark was trying to get Lucas's goat. In mail order groom, Mark was just being Mark

Mail order bride today

Mark:that sure is a funny way of getting a husband, miss Isabel. Did you do a background check? Did you use tender or match.com?

Lucas (turning 50 gorgeous shades of red):Mark!
