The Pet episode #15 - 8 of 10 pages

If you listen carefully, the closing credits music sounds completely different for this episode. The instruments are the same, but it’s a little slower and it’s in a different (slightly higher) key. Thanks Ann Marie!

File Footage ― There were four episodes where they reused the footage from Eight Hours To Die — the part where Lucas rides down the shady lane to find Mark and Judge Burton. First, we see it in The Pet, after Haskins made himself at home in the McCain's’ house. The next time is Season 4’s Skull when Lucas couldn’t find Mark at their camp and rides off looking for him. Then the footage was also used in two episodes from Season 5. In Conflict, watch after Lucas is still disturbed about missing the cougar; he tells Mark he’s going into town to see the gunsmith. Also, in Which Way'd They Go? when Lucas is riding off to buy cattle. Thanks Ann Marie!

Reed Whip — If you look really closely during Season 1, you'll see a reed whip in the front of the McCain buckboard in a few episodes. Thanks Ann Marie!
