Charles: (brings the new dog into the barn) Hey, Half-Pint. Look what followed me home from Mankato. He's just a stray, but he's a good dog. He's smart. (dog is licking Laura's face like crazy) Hey, look at that, he's really taking a shine to you! He can be yours, if you want.
Laura: I don't want him.
Charles: Oh, come on. He just wants to give you a little loving, that's all.
Laura: I DON'T WANT HIM! (runs out)
