Feet of Clay - Bonanza S1|30

The Cartwrights take young Billy Allen to the Ponderosa following the death of his mother. Hoss is the only one that is able to penetrate the boy's hostility and bitterness. As the two begin to get close, Billy's father Vance breaks out of prison and comes for the boy. A young boy named Billy Allen comes to the Ponderosa. He's about 11 or 12 and has already been through a lot in his young life. His mother had died several years earlier, and his father, Vance--he was a former Ponderosa ranch hand who was convicted of murder and sent to prison. Vance and a fellow inmate, Pike, break out of the Nevada State Penitentiary and, after killing a guard, make their way back to the Ponderosa. They later rob a stagecoach, killing the driver and a the armored guard. At the Ponderosa, Billy refuses to open up to Ben and his sons, and takes one of Hop Sing's carving knives. When Ben decides to be stern with the youngster, Hoss intercedes and manages to talk Billy into giving back the knife. He tells him gently that taking the knife wasn't right, even though he had swiped a few of Hop Sing's freshly baked doughnuts; Billy reluctantly accepts a whittling knife as a present. The two become friends and go fishing together. Billy proves to be an adept fisherman, but all Hoss can catch is a rock. More on https://bonanza.fandom.com/wiki/Feet_of_Clay
