Bonanza could be educational.  Tell of or post a screen cap of any main or semi-regular character quoting poetry or other writing or reading a book.  Even a guest star will do!

 

 

Remember to include the episode title when posting a screen cap.  If a member on 'tells' of an episode, it is permissible for another member to 'quote' that response and upload an image to illustrate the scene.

The Far, Far Better Thing ep. 6x16

Lucy Melviney is quoting Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities.

 

In the story two men like a girl. At the end of the story one of those men, the girls true love interest is about to be executed. The other man ends up standing in for the first and taking his punishment upon himself. His last words are.  

"It is a far, far better thing I do than anything I have ever done." 

 

When Lucy tells these two gentlemen (pictured below) of this sacrifice, Joe scoffs unable to understand his reasoning. At the end of the episode he ends up making this same sacrifice to help his friend Tuck whom he knows is in love with Lucy. 

 

Truth be told, it is this very episode that got me to read A Tale of Two Cities.

Not sure why I'm not able to see your screen capture in your post.

I just noticed The Care and Trsining of Dogs was "written" by Fenton Coe.

:rotfl:Aren't they clever. 

 

From IMDb Trivia - Bonanza Bitter Water - At the start of the show, Hoss is seen reading a book called The Care and Training of Dogs and the author is Fenton Coe. At that time, Fenton Coe was the Director of Film Production for NBC.

I didn't realize that.  My first thought was, possibly a distant relation to Barry Coe who played Clay Stafford in The First Born.  :question:

That's a great tidbit of information. Thanks for the share.

I don't think he really wrote a book on that subject.  That's often an inside joke on shows.  For example, on Stargate SG1 Episode "Window of Opportunity,"  O'Neill is reading Latin for the Novice by Joseph Mallozzi, Ph.D.  Mallozzi was Executive Producer on the show.

Yeah, I gathered that it was more of a inside joke or hats off to the person. On the new Voltron (I have kids I swear) the aliens call Lance's pet cow a Kaltenecker, named after Benjamin Kaltenecker one of the shows producers.
