Characters: Sam and Ann Croft, Albie

Cartwright involved: Little Joe.

Missing: Adam and Hoss do not appear in this episode.

This is an interesting episode. I recall a Little House on the Prairie episode where Laura teaches a deaf friend sign language. Similar to this episode, he falls in love with her. He also almost gets hit by a wagon. I found myself comparing these two episodes.

I've decided I like LHOTP's version better. Why? Because I thought the whole "I get what your talking about" scene was absolutely cheesy and way over-played. I don't understand how she understood what he was doing. Laura showed door and window - things you can touch and then sign. Little Joe didn't have a clue. And the whole "Fell this and understand" concept...just cannot believe it...
