Episode Info

Charles (Michael Landon) spends so much time with his foster son, Albert (Matthew Laborteaux), that his biological daughter Laura (Melissa Gilbert) feels neglected. Sensing Laura's resentment, Albert sadly concludes that it would be best for all concerned if he ran away. Only after Laura has won first prize at a country fair with Albert's pet calf Fagin does she realize how selfish she has been -- whereupon she attempts to convince Albert that he is truly wanted after all.
