The Rifleman - Waste part 1 & 2 piddlin' stuff.....

First let's start out with the writer of this episode.....Robert Culp. Beside being an actor, he has wrote and directed many of things.
piddlin' stuff.....Robert Culp appeared in two episodes of The Rifleman.  'The Hero' as Colly Vane. He played the town hero until the town folks found out the outlaw was shot in the back and 'The Man from Salinas' as Dave Foley, the bounty hunter who claimed to be Rudy Gray's brother so he could get the $2,000 bounty on Gray.

 Vito Scotti appeared in four episodes ― 'Waste' 1 & 2 as Alphonso, he was the leader of the bandits ― 'The Sixteenth Cousin' as Soto the honorable servant of Hikaru Yamanaka.....Imperial Lord.....fifth warrior of the Samurai.....sixteenth cousin in the family of his Imperial Highness..... Emperor Japan) ― 'Which Way'd They Go?' as Marcello Chabini the owner of the bank in Paradise.

Enid Jaynes appeared in six episodes of "The Rifleman"'Panic' as Amy Barker, she was the lady who had the fever ― 'The Wyoming Story' - part 1 & 2 as Aggie, the woman who wanted Lucas to take her with him when he returned to North Fork.  She and Dabbs Greer played in two of "The Rifleman" episodes together ― 'Panic' and 'The Wyoming Story'.
 'Quiet Fear' as Abbey Striker, the woman who was deaf  — 'Waste' - part 1 & 2, she was the pregnant woman, the one who slapped Lucas's face at the end of the episode. 
She did not have one speaking line in 'Waste' or in 'Quiet Fear'.
Perils of a Producer's wife.....

Alex Montoya appeared as Ear Digger, he was the one Lucas hit over the head with the shovel. 

Pepe Hern appeared in three episodes ― 'Waste' 1 & 2 as Sleeper, one of Alphonso's men ― 'Vaqueros' as Abuelito Lazaro, he's the one that was given Lucas' shirt and the one who took Mark on ahead.

Tony Rosa played Horse Teeth Looker, he was the one playing cards with Alphonso.

Sara Taft appeared in three episodes ― 'Dead Cold Cash' as Sara Caruthers, she was the bitter old woman who wanted Lucas killed within one week of her death ― 'Waste' 1 & 2 as the old woman.

How about this statement? Never been in this fix before.....
"You can't do it alone! And even if you do send me off, I'll come right back and jump one of them with a rock. I swear I will!" "You never talked to me like that before son." Mark replied....."I've never had to. We've never been in such a fix before." "No.....(sigh).....I guess we haven't."

 This is a very good episode in every way! I would have liked to have heard more on Mark's and Micah's conversation together.
I like how Mark stood up to what he thought he was right and didn't back down.

"Mark did good Lucas!"
