When the stagecoach breaks down in North Fork an Italian Count, Alfredo di Montova, has to spend the night at the hotel. His fancy dress and accented English makes him a target for town bully Sim Groder and his little crowd. The Count is a calm and collected type but when Groder pushes him too far, he challenges him to a duel. With Lucas acting as his second, di Montova teaches the bully a lesson. Written by garykmcd

Fancy Pants and Jerk Water town
12 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love all these old expressions, and Rifleman had more than there share of them. In this particular episode, Jack Elam got to say some. He called Freddie "Fancy Pants" because of his pants. He called North Fork a jerk-water town.

This episode is pretty good. There are some lessons Mark learns - people who are different are treated as something to be hated because they aren't understood. Of course, I love the part where Mark informs his father he wants to go, and Lucas says a firm NO. He wants to teach Mark that there's nothing COOL about duels. He didn't think it was something a young boy should be part of. So instead, he makes Mark stay at the hotel. Does he really think Mark went back to sleep?

Don't ask me to pick my favorite! I just can't.
