Full Story Line for The Rescue
Ben finds a cowhide with the Ponderosa brand at Josh Tatum’s place. He tells Josh he should have told him he needed beef instead of taking it without their consent. Josh doesn’t like how Ben’s accusing him of being a thief. He calls for his son, Gus, who is awaiting his signal to pull the trigger of his rifle.
Josh orders Ben to drop his gun belt and get off his horse. The two start arguing, which later leads to a fistfight. After their brawl, Ben ended up knocked to the ground. Once Ben gains enough strength, he rides on his horse and returns home.
The Cartwright boys ate their breakfast while worrying about Ben, who rode out before daylight. Ben suddenly returns home, then tidies himself before the kids realize what happened to him. However, that didn’t stop his sons from asking him questions. Adam asks if his horse threw him, Hoss asks if he bumped into a limb, while Joe asks if he forgot to duck. Ben replied “no” to each question, then confessed that he got into a little scuffle. He tells them to forget about it, expressing his desire to avoid more trouble.
When Ben leaves to change his shirt, the Cartwright boys discuss who their father fought with and what they should do about it. Hoss suggests they tell Ben to take things a little easy, and Adam believes it’s time for Ben to reduce his involvement in physical activities. They all agree that it’s time for Ben to become a supervisor, similar to what other ranches have.
The Cartwright boys suggest Ben avoid more trouble, to which Ben agrees. He changes the topic by telling the boys they have lost about 200 head of cattle in the past weeks. Ben asks them to flip a coin to see who’ll join him in finding the rustlers. On the other hand, one of them will stay at home. The Cartwright boys believe it’s not the best condition to travel, so Ben declares he’ll come with Hop Sing instead. They suggest Ben stay home to supervise the ranch, considering he’s getting older. Ben accepts their suggestion, but he feels saddened about the situation.
The Cartwright boys followed tracks to a box canyon. Once they reach a spot, the awaiting rustlers start shooting, which scared their horses to run away. The Cartwright boys and the rustlers exchange fire for a moment. Adam rushes to an injured Hoss. Hoss believes they’ll face a rough night, considering they lost their horses, got no food, water, or fire, and the rustlers will shoot them dead at any chance.
Ben is pacing back and forth, looking out the window as he anxiously waits for his sons to return. Hop Sing assures Ben they’ll return, especially Hoss, who’ll rush home once he smells his cooking.
Hop Sing’s claim was correct as Hoss could smell Hop Sing’s roast pork and sweet potatoes, even if they were at the boulders. However, Adam is skeptical, considering how far they are from home.
The rustlers kept their fire pot to inform the Cartwright boys that they were still there. Jake Moss worries that Ben will come looking for his boys, but Johnny assures him not to worry about the older man.
Despite their dire condition, the Cartwright boys remain alert for the rustlers. Adam shoots his rifle and hits Curly, one of the rustlers, through the billiard physics he learned in Virginia City. His shot darts off the canyon wall, successfully hitting his target.
Ben pursues a search for his sons. He encounters Josh, who he no longer trusts after assuming he took his cattle and entered his land. Ben reveals that he’s only being careful, considering the Ponderosa lost hundreds of cattle in the past month. Ben also tells Josh that he’s leaving to look for his sons, who went after the rustlers but haven’t returned. Josh couldn’t believe Ben would go after his sons alone without a sheriff or a posse.
While following a trail, Ben hears a gunshot. He dismounts to investigate, but Johnny spots him. A second later, Johnny successfully shoots Ben, who drops to the ground. Johnny approaches Ben with his rifle to check if he’s still alive. Assuming he’s dead, Johnny picks up Ben’s rifle. However, Ben gets up and shouts at Johnny, then shoots Johnny before the latter can fire back.
The Tatums arrive at Jake’s camp. Josh worries that Ben has reached their area, so Jake assures him that Johnny will take care of Ben. However, Gus returns to report that Johnny isn’t in his position. Josh orders Gus to return to Johnny’s position while he and Jake handle the Cartwright boys.
Hoss noticed a pattern from the shot fired at him. Whenever he shoots, the rustler in position, Jack, retaliates immediately. Hoss shows Adam and Little Joe an example. Adam asks Hoss to fire again. However, Ben shoots Jack in the shoulder before he can shoot back. The Cartwright boys find it odd that Jack’s down, considering Adam hasn’t fired. However, they immediately figured Ben had come to save them.
Meanwhile, the injured Jack returns to camp.
Ben sees his sons and fires three shots from his gun to inform them about his arrival. Joe returns the signal, then covers Ben while he approaches them.
Josh tends to Jack’s injury, who informs him that another person caused his wound. Josh believes it’s Ben. He also realized that the situation could have killed his son, changing his perspective on what was happening. Josh orders Jake to take Curly to Silver City to remove the bullet on his shoulder. Jake argues that Josh’s going soft, but Josh only wants his sons to be safe and out of harm. Once Jake and Curly leave, Josh ties his red handkerchief to a stick and waves his flag at Ben.
Ben tells Josh that Hoss has a wound in the leg but will be just fine. Josh replies by saying Jack got shot in the arm. He immediately confesses to rustling his stock, thinking Ben wouldn’t notice since they have a lot of livestock. Josh also tells Ben he’s done many things he’s not proud of, today’s event even leading to nearly killing his and Ben’s son. Josh apologizes, saying none of the cattle in Nevada was worth the lives of their sons. Ben agrees, and the dispute is finally over. Josh offers to help Hoss return to Ponderosa, round up the cattle they rustled, and let the Cartwrights take them to the sheriff.
Hop Sing immediately welcomes their return, asking what happened to Hoss. In response, Hoss jokingly says he’s dying of starvation. Ben tells Hop Sing to cook turkey and beefsteaks for the Tatums, who’ll stay for dinner.
Josh hopes things will differ between them once they’ve settled things with the sheriff. He also mentions the difficulty in raising kids, to which Ben agrees.

the bleeding boy is it busted up bad no it ain't nothing but a scratch you'll hardly even have a scar to show to some pretty gal give him another shot of that whiskey how was it how would it be his shot eddie i was just wondering living this way i always figured we'd catch some lead one day thinking about it seeing your boy with a slug in his two different things he might have been killed this ain't exactly a beast thing i've got my shoulder i know it curly but it ain't the same thing it may not be the same to you josh but it's the same thing to me one old buzzard holding up six minutes sure seems like six man ain't you forgetting something johnny's gone you and jack are hit the way i figured that leaves only three not six thinking ben cartwright why'd he have to stick his nose into this what's he gonna do let us keep his boys pinned down he runs out of ammunition wounded you think he's gonna like that that'll turn him as mean as a trapped cougar you all right he's gonna be you see gus yeah gus is all right but i seen something else then cartwright is down there with his boys what did i tell you anybody else with him no but he got in there with a couple of rifles and probably some extra ammunition you're gonna be a tough nut to crack i never said he wouldn't be did i you never said nothing you're so full of ideas now let's hear one of them well first off i think you better take curly cross country to silver city and find a saw bones that slug in his shoulders got to come out all right all right but what about the herd right now that herd we wrestle don't seem so important what are you aiming to do just walk out here you got a better idea yeah i'll give the orders now why don't you just try that yeah i never should have throwed in with you in the first place i might know you'd go soft just because a man don't want to see his sons get killed don't mean he's going soft as far as i'm concerned it does uh curly think you can set a horse you just lead me to him all right you better get out of here curly you take care of that shoulder boy thanks josh what are you doing that for paul for to keep from getting shot when i talked to ben cartwright what do you want to talk to him for you got shot they might get guts [Music] that's pretty quiet paw yeah [Music] i'm still running this show [Music] foreign heart event how's it bigger a little late to show concern isn't it for the record there's a clean wound in the leg it'd be all right jack got shot in the arm well what'd you expected nobody get hurt then i didn't figure to turn out this way you see we've been rustling some of your stock well it didn't seem like much you having so many didn't seem like stealing and i suppose ambushing my sons didn't seem much like shooting i was miles away when a bacon got shot oh now you're gonna tell me that if you'd been here you're gonna put a stop to it i've done a lot of things in my time and i'm proud of ben and today i might have gotten my kids killed i might have killed one of yours you're alive right now because you didn't all right ben i only come back here because i'm sorry for what i've done i figured you was man enough to take into account that i ain't rich i ain't no boss or no ponderosa i got the same feeling toward my boys as you got toward yours maybe all you want is just revenge well if that's what you want you better dig in deep and save your ammunition that is unless you shoot me in the back when i walk out of here josh now nobody's going to shoot you in the back yeah we're pretty we'll hold up here we got plenty of ammunition if you and your gang figure you you haven't had enough you just say the word we can start this ruckus all over again don't you stand there yelling at me what do you want to go on with this adulterer you want to try your luck again ben you got me wrong hey all the cattle and nevadas were one of our boys that's what i come here to tell you oh my god both reaching for the same conclusion we're butting our heads together like old billy goats no we're we're like a couple of them she bears with a litter of cubs yeah you ain't never tried to mess around with one of them have you me i got more sense than that me too why we're messing with each other i can't think of it ben here's me and my boys i figure we can rig up a litter and help you get the big and back to the ponderosa then we'll help you round up the cattle that we rustled after you can take us down to virginia city to see the sheriff [Music] yeah let's get the boys out of here since how he had to shoot one i wish it had been the little one thanks a lot [Music] [Applause] [Music] what's the matter you mr horse i'm saying i'm dying of starvation that's always matter of me i got turkey uh good that'll do for a starter then later on you can fix me a full meal he make joke i don't think so i got two turkey all right hopsin that'll do for a start uh you better get some beef steaks going the tatums are staying for dinner i think they're hungry they've had a hard day very good [Music] figured you'd want to get into virginia city to have jack's arm patched up josh the sort of the better so i uh long walks i had the uh boys saddle up three horses for you more than decent of you ben to see the sheriff i'll have someone bring these horses back i reckon we'll be staying there quite a while yeah well i reckon you're right russian's a serious crime i ain't denying it of course uh seeing as how you you didn't really go through with it seen as how you told us where the cows are i ain't asking no favors i'm not offering any except for the loan of the horses i expect you'll want one of your boys to go along with us see we get to the sheriff and then get these horses back why can i trust you man when i get straightened out with a law i hope things will be different between you and me i mean oh but what are you waiting for you're gonna stand around until you get bud poison in that arm you heard mr cartwright if you ain't forgot how to ride get started for a wheel of tire out of both of you dang wolf pups raisin kids ain't easy ben no sure isn't josh of course there's uh there's one good thing man can sure start taking it easy once his boys are grown big enough to take care of things [Music] hey [Music]
