Charles: Hey, scholar! Let me see that certificate. Hey, that's pretty impressive. Congratulations!
Mary: (quietly) Thank you.
Charles: You don't look too happy for someone who just won an award.
Mary: (pulls glasses out of her pocket; starts crying) I didn't really lose them, Pa. I hid them. Nellie kept calling me Four-Eyes. I'm sorry I lied.
Charles: Yeah, I had a feeling it was something like that. Come here. That whole "sticks and stones" thing isn't true, is it? Names do hurt.
Mary: They sure do.
Charles: Yeah. But you've got the certificate, so no more tears, all right? Hey, if you keep studying, you will get to be just as good a teacher as Miss Beadle.
Mary: That's right, Pa. (puts on glasses) Just like Miss Beadle.
