Michael Landon returns to the series to make his final appearance as Charles Ingalls (other than the seperate TV movie specials which later concluded the story) and is billed as "special guest star". Interestingly, although the episode is about her son, Albert's , problems with petty crime and drug addiction, Caroline (Karen Grassle) does not appear at all, even in the scenes in Burr Oak and is only referred to.

Charles Ingalls: Albert, what you want and what's going to be are two entirely different things.
Albert Quinn Ingalls: I won't go!
Charles Ingalls: You'll do what I say!
Albert Quinn Ingalls: And if I don't?
Charles Ingalls: If you don't, then I'll ask Mr. Gibson to change his mind and press charges against you.
Albert Quinn Ingalls: You'd do that?
Charles Ingalls: I'd have to do that. I am not going to sit back and watch you destroy your life and your Mother's and Mine. I'm not going to do that. You're not the only one in this family. You're hurting all of us and I'm not going to let it happen anymore.

Omg! this episode was just SO freaky! oh my gosh! Albert went crazy because of the morphine. But it was interesting and exciting. I was so shocked on how hard it is to spend one night without drugs. You see, i think more teenagers should watch that episode because it was like what drug addicts really go through. That morphine really screwed up that part of his life. And when he got violent i was like "Wow..." I really enjoyed watching this episode and i would watch it over and over again until i got tired of it or something like that. But overall, i think that Albert's character did an excellent performance. One of the best i've seen.
