Nels: You're quite a little girl.
Laura: Mrs. Oleson won't be angry at Bunny anymore, will she?
Nels: Well, it wouldn't make much sense for her to be angry at your horse, now would it?
Laura: My horse?
Nels: Yes, that's what I said. You know, an animal is no different from a person. It needs to be with someone who loves it. Take her home.
Laura: Thanks, Mr. Oleson. (hugs him)
