  • Quotes (12)

    • Nellie: Mrs. Oleson, can I ask you a question? Caroline: Certainly. What is it? Nellie: Well, I was just men like taller women? Caroline: (pauses) Some do. Nellie: But most of them don't? Caroline: Oh, I don't know what the percentages are. Nellie: Well, it can't be very high. I don't know a man in Walnut Grove whose wife is taller than he is. Caroline: Well, I think most men are just taller than women. I mean, a man might want to marry a taller woman, but he just can't find one. Nellie: I don't think Percival likes tall women. Caroline: (smiles) Well, I think that in his case, he better start!

    • Nellie: Why are you always the one to complain? Customer: Because I've always got a reason! This bread isn't even warm! Nellie: Well, it will be once you shove it down your throat! (goes after him) Percival: Nellie! Nellie: (embarrassed) Oh, Percival. (turns to customer) I'm sorry about the bread. It will only take me a minute to heat it up......

    • Houston: Folks in love do strange things. That's why I never fell in love -- I was afraid I'd do something strange. But when you think about it, there ain't nothing stranger than spending your life all alone. Laura: You're a strange man, Houston. You've never been in love, yet you talk about it like you know everything about it. Houston: Talk to his heart. You're a very special little lady, you know that?

    • Grace: (Kisses little boy) Charles: (Picks Grace up and carries her away) You are going to wait until you're 18, young lady. Little Boy: I love her!

    • Caroline: Have you told them yet? Charles: No. Caroline: Well, now's as good a time as any. Charles: Yes, darling. (Walks up to Laura and Almanzo) One year. You've gotta wait one year, and that's my final word.

    Notes (3)

    • Nellie gets married a mere 24 hours after being proposed to. The only people who beat that on the show were Grace Snider and Mr. Edwards in Season 2's Remember Me, Part 2, and they had a wedding just minutes after Mr. Edwards proposed. Nellie is also the only main character on the show who gets married without having a Church ceremony and has Doc Baker preside over the service. Everyone else--including Grace and Mr. Edwards, Mary, Laura, and Willie--was married by a Reverend.

    • Brenda Turnbaugh, who played Grace in the final scene where she kisses the little boy, has proudly proclaimed that he is the only boy other than her husband that she has ever kissed.

    • Alison Angrim and Dean Butler were credited as guests in this episode.

    Trivia (3)

    • The song that Houston plays on his harmonica in the scene where Almanzo brings him the rent money is the theme music from the end credits of the show.

    • In the last scene, baby Grace has quite an adorable kissing scene with another little boy. Some fans may be surprised to learn that the real Grace Ingalls met and married a 42-year-old man, Nate Dow, when she herself was only 24!

    • Look very closely at the expression on Nellie's face when Percival says "Now for the honeymoon!" at the end of the episode. You have to really watch, because they only show her face for a second.
