Doc Baker realizes that something is wrong with the morphine in his pouches and he tells Nels that the company is very responsible and loyal and so something had to happen to it when it came here to Walnut Grove. He says no one messed with in the store and he had Albert drop it off for him. Doc Baker realizes that Albert must have switched the morphine for powdered sugar. He tells Charles to watch for symptoms of addiction. Charles finds the morphine in Albert's shoes and gives it back to Doc Baker. When Albert goes looking for it, Charles confronts him but Albert says he only did it once and he's sorry and it won't happen again. He lied and he has to go through a major major withdrawal to get off the morphine. Some of this episode is quite graphic where he vomiting up tons of grossness during the withdrawal.

LANDON could be Ballsy!!!!
2 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must say this episode still has the same power it had in 1983... I am mostly going to comment about when Landon did the Tonight Show w/Johnny Carson... Landon was a very popular guest who guested at my count 24 times over the years before he passed.. It is hard to get an accurate count I am recalling from memory.. He came on did his charming funny schtick before he got deadly serious... He was furious at the NBC censors for not showing any clips from this episode which was graphic in great detail.... He blasted the network for showing no guts for fear of offending viewers.. Funny thing was Lil House came on Monday Night at 8 p.m. which was family hour on prime time and broadcast with no problem... Carson in all his (true) class said on air he respected Landon's pov and had every right to feel the way he did.. The power these two men had at the time w/NBC they were their two real money makers for the network still couldn't get aired showed they were both slowly losing clout. Landon got on his soap box about pot smoking and how it leads to stronger drugs which is true... This is where Landon could be such a hypocrite.. During his Bonanza days by his own admission he was addicted to uppers and downers drank too much and was a 4 pack a day smoker of unfiltered cigarettes could judge others without looking at himself first... During Little House Melissa Gilbert said Landon drank a bottle of vodka a day on set to get through production...
