  • Quotes

    • Nels Oleson: What can I do for you?
      Charles: Well, I'd like a plow and weed seed; enough for a hundred acres.
      Nels Oleson: I understand you're building a house out there.
      Charles: We got it finished yesterday. I can start breaking sod as soon as I get that plow. I, uh, I don't have any money right now. I'd like to pledge a share on the first crop.
      Harriet Oleson: We do give credit to a few farmers that we've known for a long time, but only to a few.
      Nels Oleson: There is a reason, you see, we need the money to buy the things we need to keep in business.
      Charles: I understand, cash on the barrel, and that's the way I like to deal and wheel, just as soon as I get that first crop to sale.
      Harriet Oleson: Mr. Ingalls, do you know how many families move out here and plant their crops and run up more bills than they can hope to pay for, and then skip out in the dead of night? I can show you a whole drawer full--
      Charles: Mrs. Oleson, I can assure you I had no intention of running out in the middle of the night.
