Laura: (when Almanzo is struggling to tell her something) Well, do you want to write me a note?
Laura: Okay. (gives him a pencil and paper, he starts writing)
Almanzo: Danburnit, the point broke!
Laura: Let me see what you've got so far. "My dearest Laura, I love you and I want to--" That's where the point broke.
Laura: You want to what?
Almanzo: I want to, uh....I want to sharpen this pencil and write another note....
Laura: Manly, look at me. You want to what?
Almanzo: (pause) I want you to be my wife.
Laura: I'd love to!
