  • A great episode!! Laura and Nellie engage in their dirty tricks to win over Almanzo.

    This was a fabulous episode. I love the original relationship between Laura and Almanzo -- how they met and how everything worked. It also really showed the problems Laura and Nellie had. I watched this episode regularly, and then with the commentary, which is done by Alison Arngrim. I highly recommend you watch the commentary. Alison is very natural talking about it, and it gives a lot of information. She can also be very funny, saying things like: "You know, life would be a lot simpler if everybody listened to Ma Ingalls." And my favorite, when she's describing the memorable mud fight: "Look at this! I'm 6 inches taller, maybe 10 or 15 pounds heavier, and she is completely defeating me! You do not want to get into a fight with Melissa Gilbert." The episode, in general, is very memorable and very fun. Its about growing up, love, and general problems. Watch it for sure!
