As Dr. Baker is closing up his office (after Ms. Oleson's visit) to go to the Novak farm, a crew or cast member is clearly reflected in the light panel next to the door. Then later in the episode as Dr. Baker is leaving his office once the new doctor has moved in, Mary's bonnet is reflected in the panel. She was just off camera waiting to ride in for the next scene. For a brief moment it looks like she is leaning forward to pick up the reins on the horses. See more »


Dr. Hiram Baker: [packing up his office as Dr. Logan moves his things in] I brought all the patients' records up to date. Complete histories, medications, prognoses, it's all there.
Dr. Asa T. Logan: Is there much to do around here?
Dr. Hiram Baker: There's plenty of work, don't worry about that.
Dr. Asa T. Logan: Actually, I was referring to the social life.
Dr. Hiram Baker: Oh. Well, there's the usual church socials, some dances, that sort of thing.

Because if you need Dr. Bombay, all you have to do is yell for him and you pull him out from when he was climbing the Himalaya or scuba diving in the tropics. But he gets mad. I mean this show is so melodramatic, right? But it kinda sucks you in, so I hate that they play them back to back cos they're good actors. Mrs Oleson is high energy. I watched Nels on YT say that she (Katharine) tried to control his acting and he told her "you're not the director". Well, in my opinion, if your doctor ditches you cos his patients croaked, there'd be no doctors. Today's doctors collect more insurance money to chop you up and if you die in the O.R. than if you live and get well. Hospitals? I'll take two organic blueberries and call myself in the morning. As for this episode? I guess it's alright but I prefer Dr. Bombay!
