I don't like you anymore!

Though they were once friends, it seems Adam and Todd McMurrin have grown out of that phase in their lives and become rivals for the land. Mr. McMurren and Ben Cartwright have always been friends, but it's time to hand the reins over to Todd. The problem is, Todd is letting the wrong people influence him. He's in love with a decent girl who has a father that is not decent. Her father does several things to prove himself not to be the father of any girl.

I think the sulfur bath for cows is the most interesting thing. We see other westerns tackle this concept, but in this episode it's Ben's suddenly unique idea. He got the idea from a flea bath that Hoss was giving...go figure! Who knew that Ben was the first to think of it...
