And one of the older brothers sitting next to her in the circle who seemingly was also in his later teens but older than the cynical girl, just slapped her on the butt for talking that way in front of the younger kids, and told her not to spoil Christmas for everyone else.

However, what I best recall is that it was John Boy who did it.

You could be referring to a different episode
The episode I am referring to is the 2-parter where Martha was being evicted from her house so the government could build a highway. John and Olivia had just left the house and put Jason in charge. Jason told them to clean their rooms and get moving, then spanked Mary Ellen quickly.
