  • This episode is great fun! (ANY "Oleson" episode is great.) Nellie falls hard for the newest bumpkin in town, Luke Simms - brain of straw/heart of gold. And the B-plot: our beloved Miss Beadle is settling down with Luke's (thankfully smarter) father.

    The scene where Luke dines with the Olesons is hysterical. Willie hollers, "Is this what I got all dressed up for?! You're not even wearing a shirt!" Mrs. Oleson (Queen Victoria of the Prairie) gets more than mere vapors upon learning her daughter's "get'n hitched" to Walnut Grove's most eligible rube. "Nels! Get the shotgun!" The wedding scene is chock full 'o bad wedding jokes, "Nellie, do you REALLY take Luke here, for your awful husband?" The honeymoon scene is laugh-out-loud funny. The Oleson-in-laws burst into the room, "Nels! Make her a widow!" Thankfully, an annullment shortly follows.
