  • Trivia

    • Reality is suspended a great deal in this 2-part episode, regarding the Laura/Nellie relationship. In Part 1, Laura sweetly offers to cook Nellie a full dinner for her and Almanzo. Then, in Part 2, Nellie acts all friendly and agrees to loan Laura the books for the exam--and give her some "advice" about the actual test. Given the negative history that these two girls have with each other, I find it incredibly hard to believe that either of them would be so stupid as to think that the other would do something so amicably for them. Laura, especially, should have known that after deliberately ruining Nellie's dinner with Almanzo, Nellie would absolutely have a revenge plot of her own. This could be considered nitpicking, though.
