Laura: (talking to herself, working up the nerve to ask Almanzo to the circus) "Well, Manly, you see, I've got these two tickets to the circus, and I don't want them to go to waste, so I thought, why not ask Manly?" That sounds dumb. "I don't want 'em to go to waste!" I'll just be honest. No, I can't be honest. I wish I could be honest. "Oh, Manly, I love you so much. Please go to the circus with me." I'll just be friendly, that's all. (slaps herself) Would you stop talking to yourself and do it already?
