Two kids and a dog rob the Dodge Bank
kfo9494 from United States
15 April 2013
This episode centers around Ray Jarvis and his two children Annie and
Mike. They have had a tough time recently and money is tight for Ray.
But he does have a brother in-law, Ezra Thrope, that works at the bank
and goes in for a small loan but his brother in-law turns him down.
Later the two small children go into the bank and want to talk to their
Uncle. Their dog causes a ruckus inside the bank and the boy takes a
envelope that has money inside. That evening Ezra retraces his tracks
and believes that Ray took the money after not giving him a loan.
While out at the Jarvis's house, the dog brings up the envelope with
the money inside. All this happens in front of Festus and Ezra and it
is not long before Ray is placed in jail for the theft.
When the kids tell their father that they are the ones that took the
money he tells them not to say anything. He calls Festus and advises
that he will plea guilty to the theft charge. The two children feel so
bad that they decide to run away. On the path they run into Marshal
Dillon that knows something is amiss.
There is also a sub-plot that involves Ezra and his wife Louise
concerning their relationship. It seems that Louise is not happy living
with a man that is so organized and scripted. And it will take an
incident near the end of the episode to awaken the man inside Ezra.
A nice story with a fine cast. The two kids were terrific and really
make for a more entertaining show. Good watch.
