Laura: (coming back into the tent after finding out Almanzo's taking Christy to the circus) Here's your ticket, Albert.
Albert: What happened?
Laura: Almanzo has a date with Christy.
Albert: Oh, he's taking out Miss Snooty Pants, huh? (Laura doesn't laugh) Laura, Almanzo's too old for you. It's as simple as that.
Laura: Well, in all famous marriages, the man is much older than the woman.
Albert: Not Ma and Pa.
Laura: They're not famous.
Albert: Take my advice. Forget about Almanzo.
