I also loved the way Chuck, at the end said "Well, Goodbye, and good luck." It almost sounded so...final...It made me cry!
Okay, enough on that! Skip Homer and Johnny also played in a Rifleman episode together. Their scenes were very similar. Skip's character was threatening Johnny's character in a very authoritative, threatening way. I thought it was excellent!
I do wonder where the line from the poem came from.
