Trouble with a capital "T" that rhymes with "C" comes to Virginia City when Little Joe brings young Calamity Jane home to the Ponderosa after rescuing her from a deadly prairie raid.


Joe meets up with Calamity Jane and promises her dying father that he'll take care of her. He brings her to the Ponderosa, keeping her gender a secret from the other Cartwrights so she can collect her inheritance. Joe and "Cal" begin to fall in love, which is bad news because she has a jealous boyfriend: Doc Holliday.
