Jenny: (looking at baby names for Laura and Almanzo's son) Here's my favorite. Nathan.
Laura: But everyone's gonna call him Nate. How did that all get started, anyway? I mean, nobody ever called my Pa "Charlie," or James "Jimmy," or Albert "Al."
Almanzo: You never minded Beth.
Laura: Well, that's different.
Laura: Well, because only you call me that. Besides, it's pretty. I wouldn't mind having Beth for my real first name.
Jenny: I still think there's nothing wrong with "Almanzo, Jr."
Almanzo: Well, I wouldn't mind that either, Jenny, if I was sure he was going to be a farmer like me, but suppose he wants to be a doctor. I think he should have something more sophisticated, like Theodore.
Laura: Everyone will call him Teddy. What kind of name is that? Teddy Wilder.
Jenny: This is getting ridiculous. No matter what anyone suggests, there's always something wrong.
Almanzo: All right, well, we need to figure out something for the time being. We know he's a boy, and we know he's a baby, so until we settle on a name, how about if we just call him Baby Wilder?
Jenny: Oh, no!
Laura: That'll make us want to think of a name real fast. But, until then, Baby Wilder it is.
