A seriocomic (and uneasy) episode where a overmodulated farmer (Harry Morgan with a huge fake beard) decides his three sons all need wives. So he orders them to go get some, and bring one back for himself. The boys swing on down into Dodge City to find women -- and stop at the Long Branch. Not only do they "rustle" three saloon girls (including one right out of bed in long-john underwear), but they take the Long Branch's new owner, Hannah Cobb (Fran Ryan in her first appearance) with them. Then the boys (and the man, who's Hannah's age) try to "court" their unwilling guests. This was the second episode filmed for the final season and was meant as a stand-alone, but drew so much fan mail that a sequel, "Brides and Grooms" (with Morgan and Ryan returning but a different group of young men and women in the younger roles) was commissioned and filmed as the next-to-last episode of the season.
