  • Laura and Nellie both vie for the attention of Ms. Wilder\'s brother Almonzo. Harriet convinces Almonzo to come to the restarurant so Nellie can cook. Nellie hires Laura to cook cinnamon chicken. Laura switches the cinnamon with black pepper.

    This is a wonderful episode. Melissa Gilbert hilariously plays Laura in my favorite episode. Nellie is pretty good too, throwing great tempertantrums that would make a sailor blush. Almanzo \"Manny\" Wilder and Michael Landon sparkle. Never have I laughed, cried, and shouted so much over a television show or movie. I will never ever ever forget this episode, and I will never ever ever ever grow tired of it. A true classic. This is what \"Little House on the Prairie\" was made for. Positively one of the greatest, most wonderful, most memorable telvision show episodes. I love it so much!
