Storyline

A sort-of Zorba of the Grape retains Paladin to rescue his pubescent daughter from an amorous gunslinger who's made off with her. But Paladin discovers the stunning Napa Valley girl comes on like a Trojan fireball, and Jimmy the gunman acts more like Destry out-of-place in wine country, than a rapacious desperado. Wine-loving Paladin sure wants to please his Armenian vintner pal and collect his $1000, but gazing on the face that launched 1,000 wines - who does he protect from whom? Written by David Stevens

Have Grapes, Will Party
25 March 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

This comic episode not only won Gene Roddenberry the WGA award for writing but also was about the easiest $1,000 I can remember Paladin ever making.

Paldin is hired by the Armenian Abajinian (Harold J. Stone) to find his daughter who run away with a cowpoke named O'Reiley (Wright King). Roddenberry writes an amusing negotiating scene as Abajinian and Paldin dicker on his price. Then Paldin rides after the girl and finds her in no time flat. He discovers Helen (the oh so lovely Lisa Gaye) is in love with O'Reiley but he's refusing to admit he's interested. Paldin brings them both back, where O'Reiley arm wrestles Abajinian in another funny scene and is mesmerized by Helen when she dances for him and eventually falls in love.

The comedy all works in this. Boone seems to be having a great time not having to shot anybody all episode long(he also negotiates the dowry at the end), and Wright King looks and acts like a young Henry Fonda. Add in hotty Gaye and what's not to like about this episode?
