Episode Guide


During a horse buying trip to Sleepy Eye, Charles meets up with Brett Harper, one of the state's best horse breeders. However, Harper's alcoholism has taken a deep toll on the family and is coming apart because of the lack of a strong head of the household.

Charles temporarily takes the role as the family man while he tries to sober Harper up, but his touch may have worked too well: Harper's wife and children like Charles better than drunken Brett (who had become that way after his son had died). Charles manages to convince his family that Brett is a good person, but needs to be sober to be so.
