Candy tells the Cartwrights “they are asking for trouble”, by allowing a government witness to take refuge at the Ponderosa.

Trivia: This was Richman’s only appearance in the series. Before he became an actor, Richman played football for two years in a Pennsylvania league called the Eastern Pro Conference. Sidelined by a serious knee injury, he became a registered pharmacist and managed a Rosemont, Pennsylvania, drug store for a year. His interests later turned to acting and he began appearing in stage productions and in live TV out of New York.
