With Gramps (George Cleveland) having passed away, Jeff Miller and his mom Ellen no longer feel they can keep up the farm and decide its time to lease the farm to someone else who can work it (the Martins) and move away. Caught in the middle is young Timmy (Jon Provost) who thinks the Millers don't want him and is afraid the Martins will send him to an orphanage. So he runs away from home. But fortunately he has Lassie watching out for him. When he is saved from drowning by Lassie and Mr. Martin (a decorated ex- fighter pilot from the Korean war), Timmy discovers the Martins want both him and the farm! When Jeff and his mom are about to leave, Timmy's eyes well up with tears since they are going to take Lassie along with them. But Lassie has other ideas! Jeff gets a wonderful tearful goodbye scene with his disloyal dog and leaves the series after 116 episodes.
