Charles: All right, Mr. Wilder. Now, suppose you explain to me how my daughter ended up here, in your house, wearing your robe! Maybe you'd like to explain that to me!
Laura: Pa, I got in a fight, and I got wet. Almanzo was just being nice!
Charles: Oh, and I suppose he was "just being nice" when he kissed you, huh?
Laura: On the forehead, for luck on my test!
Almanzo: Yes, sir. You didn't think that I would--why, Beth's just a little girl!
