  • Quotes

    • Mary: How long will you be away?
      John: Four years.
      Mary: Four years?
      John: I talked to him for not even five minutes, and it changed my whole life. Four years at the university, everything paid. I don't even know what a university looks like.
      Mary: Wonderful, I expect.
      John: It's a great opportunity.
      Mary: You'll be gone a long time.
      John: But I'll be back in the summer for two weeks, maybe three, and at Christmas. We'll see each other twice a year.
      Mary: Twice a year......
      John: Well, it's better than nothing. We'll have so much to talk about.
      Mary: You'll be different.
      John: No I won't.
      Mary: You will too. Living in Chicago, going to the university......that's like living on the moon compared to Walnut Grove.
      John: What do you want me to do?
      Mary: I want you to go. You can't turn down four years at the university. It'll be different, John, and you'll be different when you come back at Christmas.
      John: You really want me to go?
      Mary: Of course I do. When it's done, we'll both be glad you did it.
