Storyline

While traveling back to North Fork on the stage after selling their herd, Lucas and Mark are sharing the stage with a Marshal and his prisoner Johnny Cotton. When they stop to water the horses, some of Cotton's friends are lying in wait. Cotton steals the money Lucas got for the cattle and his rifle. He sends Mark on with the stage but tracks the robbers as best he can given that he doesn't have a horse or a weapon. Written by garykmcd

Lucas McCain: I like it.
Johnny Cotton: So much so, you don't carry a handgun?
Lucas McCain: Each man to his own.
Johnny Cotton: What do you got against pistols, McCain?

Great episode
13 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's great from beginning to end! I especially like Lucas/Mark/Johnny conversation. I love how Lucas says he uses his rifle to shoot animals and not me, yet how many animals did we actually see him kill? Hmmmm....I think he killed a fake-looking bear in one episode, but did he really kill any other animals? Oh yes...the wolf! The rest of the time, it WAS indeed used to fight men!

And the way Mark was talking to Johnny...I'm surprised Lucas sat there and let him talk that way, outlaw or not...He was being sort of smart eliky and rude...but Lucas was tired, maybe Mark had given him some other problems before the trip...

Oh, and you have to love how Lucas just takes off after those men without a gun just like he did in Home Range.
