Silent Thunder - Bonanza S2|45

Angry with the way a beautiful deaf girl is treated by her father, a sheepherder living in a remote mountain cabin, Little Joe takes it upon himself to teach her sign language, so they can communicate better. His plan backfires when the young woman falls in love with him and the girl's brutish neighbor resents her lavishing attention on the youngest Cartwright. Joe becomes friends with a deaf-mute girl named Ann Croft after he defends her against a stalker. A good portion of the episode recounts Joe's efforts to teach sign language to Ann. The friendship begins when Joe, en route to Placerville to tend to Ponderosa business, tries to educate Ann's father, Sam, about his deaf-mute daughter. He believes her condition is a curse from God and has no intention of helping her or gaining any understanding about it. He reveals that he wants to protect her by sheltering her at his home. Joe buys a book on sign-language and, after mastering some of the basics, begins to teach Ann how to communicate. The weeks pass and Joe keeps passing his knowledge on to Ann, who quickly picks up on the lessons. Source: https://bonanza.fandom.com/wiki/Silent_Thunder
