While Adam relies on his charm and guitar to impress a visiting senorita, Hoss and Little Joe scheme to win her heart in a more south-of-the-border way...a bull fight!
Adam, Hoss, and Joe vie for the attention of attractive young lady Dolores, the daughter of Ben's guest Señor Tenino.
When they learn of her love of matadors in the bull ring, they think they'll impress her with a bullfight.
In the process, much of Virginia City is a wreck thanks to their bull running amok.
