Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of a Texas veterinarian, Dr. Daniel Young who carries a torch for a local ranch owner's daughter, Tess McGill. She has a stubborn streak and refuses to marry any man who is unable to out-ranch her. She makes a bet with her Dad that she will give Young one week to prove he can be a better rancher than she is and if he does, she will marry him. Young's helper at the veterinary practice, Buddy, proves to be a bit of a surprise. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Sam (Doc) and Tess dance to Hank Williams singing "Cold, Cold Heart" (1951). See more »

Goofs

The calender in Doc's office displays the wrong month. August 1956 began on a Wednesday, not a Saturday as seen. As Doc would need to keep a close eye on the date to keep appointments it is very unlikely he would forget to change it. December was the only 31 day month to begin on Saturday in 1956. (September began on Saturday but only has 30 days. The calendar clearly shows a month with 31 days.) See more »

Quotes

Al: Oh, well, almost all animals can see me. But you know, there must be something weird lookin' about me, because I seem to intimidate them.
Sam: Maybe it's your clothes.
