My favorite Little House Episode - Albert is on drugs

Yesterday when I got home from work the TV was on while Cathi was cooking dinner. I noticed immediately that my favorite Little House on the Prairie episode was on. It's the one where Albert is addicted to Morphine.

He beats up a kid in school, hits his teacher, runs away and tries to steal more drugs from Doc Baker. But Doc Baker and Charles are too smart and trap him. Then Charles takes him up to a remote cabin. Then the fun really begins.

Albert goes through some withdrawals like seizures while he lies there screaming for help. Charles looks like he's going through the same amount of pain himself. They both scream and hug real tight. Then Albert claims to need some air so he can breath, or he'll die. Charles helps him outside when Albert pushes Charles down and runs off in the night. Charles catches him and carries him back to "rehab".

Then Albert goes through more seizures and screaming. It's hilarious. The acting is fantastic. It's so dramatic. Cathi hates it. Albert throws up white goo all over Charles and it's great.

But Cathi has had too much drama and makes me turn it off.
