SummaryEdit

Cactus Murphy, an embittered ranch whom Ben fired, suggests that the Cartwright patriarch is getting a little old to "put in a real week's work." Ben's response: Take a job under the assumed name Ben Brown and show Murphy that he is still more than capable of sweating out the job of a rancher.

PlotEdit

Ben's decision to let a ranch hand go for incompetence gets the old man riled up. Cactus Murphy challenges the Cartwright patriarch to do the work he usually does in a week, and without using his status to get it accomplished. Ben accepts the challenge and goes to work incognito on the Ponderosa.
