Charles Ingalls: Why not?
Gargan: Well, folks with good reputations can cheat from you a lot easier than folks with bad reputations. You understand?

I enjoyed this episode. However, I felt that I had seen it before. Did anyone else notice this show is almost identical to a show from Bonanza, involving Hoss Cartwright as the character who went to stay with a wealthy family while buying horses? I'm not sure what the name of the Bonanza episode was, but I will try to find it. Even the script was word for word in places. I just saw the episode on Bonanza last week. The similarities were surprising. I don't think this story was inspired by Little House on the Prairie books. I think it was inspired by Michael Landon's time on the Bonanza set. Since he was in both shows, I guess he could borrow story themes.
