Charles: (in response to Eliza Jane lying about her relationship with Harv) Why, Eliza?
Eliza Jane: I want to start over. I need a change. It was a chance to do something for Almanzo and Laura. You don't know my brother like I do. He wouldn't let me just go off to be alone, even though it's what I want. He's always been very close to me. Too close, perhaps. Too protective. It's time we both led our own lives. Please don't say anything, Charles. Believe me, I know what I'm doing, and it makes me happy. I'll write Almanzo later and tell him things didn't work out between Harv and me. By then, I'll be settled and teaching again. I'll be fine, really. Let them have this glorious day.
