Quotes

Ben Cartwright: [to Hoss] Now, just one long minute! And you look at me when I talk to you! I know that half the people of Virginia City are trying to get me married off to Widow Hawkins. Now, maybe I have to take their smirks and innuendos, but I don't have to take it from my own family, you hear?
Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright: Yes sir.
Joseph 'Little Joe' Cartwright: Yes sir.
Ben Cartwright: Yes sir! You coming along, Adam?
Adam Cartwright: I'm with you every step of the way, Pa... right down the aisle.
[Hoss and Joe crack up laughing, but stop when Ben turns and glares at them]

The Case of the Jewel
10 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another one of the lighter episodes. Ben Cartwright does well in playing the Cartwright Patriarch. He doesn't need any help in solving his problems and can still put every one of his sons in their place with just a look.

In fact, the episode opens with all three boys having fun with their father who finds himself subject of rumor with an rather strange widow. But then when his sons try to "help" him out, they get him into a lot of trouble.

It's fun watching everyone trying to track down the real jewel.

Thankfully, nobody died in this episode.
