Jennifer May: There's nothing wrong with being important and making money.
Dr. Galen 'Doc' Adams: Not a thing. But, maybe, if that's all you want, you came to the wrong place. I'm here because I like the town. I like the people in it - not because I'm getting rich on them.
Jennifer May: Before we came you were the only doctor here. You must have making plenty of money.
Dr. Galen 'Doc' Adams: I think you've got the wrong idea about Dodge. You haven't seen the shacks, the dirt farmers bending their backs out of shape trying to get something - anything - to grow out of ...

Doc Adams has to put up with rumors from a visiting doctor's wife
21 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here is an episode that features Milburn Stone as the lovable Doctor that we have all grown to know. When a new doctor comes to Dodge, he will have to put up with the doctor's wife that wants to see her husband excel in his practice while Doc Adams fails. But something will happen along the way that will be a turning point. And as usual, Doc Adams goes through the entire incident with his grace and character that we all know.

Doctor Wesley May and his wife Jennifer arrive in Dodge on their way to Denver. Doc Adams gets wind of another medical doctor in town and invites the both up for supper. Doc Adams tells the two that being the only doctor in town is a learning experience that is hard to beat. With that said, Jennifer wants to stay in Dodge instead of her husband being one of five doctors in the town of Denver.

They open up a practice but find out that getting patients is harder than first thought. So Jennifer starts spreading rumors about Doc Adams. Jennifer is so obsessed with making her husband look good that when Doc Adams tells Mr Boake that his leg must be amputated because of gas-gangrene, Jennifer tells Boake that her husband can save the leg. But things do not go as planned when Dr. May finally arrives and there is no chance for him to even save Boake's life.

The story then kind of makes a weird turn where Dr. May ends up needing the help of Doc Adams. And finally Jennifer will see that they should have went onto Denver instead of spreading rumors. A very nice ending to a show that was interesting to watch. There is a scene when Dr May is injured that really made little sense but for story sake, we take the results and go forward. A good watch.
