Laura: You never gave Mary a silly nickname like Half-Pint.
Charles: I never thought it was a silly nickname. Besides that, Mary's older.
Laura: Not that much older.
Charles: She's a grown woman, she's a teacher--
Laura: I'm gonna be a teacher!
Charles: Okay, well, when you're a teacher, I'm sure everyone will treat you like an adult. But for right now, you're my little girl, and you've living under our roof, and as long as you do you're gonna do what your Ma and I tell you--starting with apologizing to Almanzo.
