John: What do you have against Lou Bates?
Harriet: Lou Bates? I don't know what you mean.
John: Yes, you do. You told Bill Anderson you'd cancel your account if he hired him.
Harriet: Oh, that Lou Bates.
John: Yes, that Lou Bates!
Harriet: Oh, for Heaven's sake, what are you so upset about?
John: I'm upset because he's a good man trying to earn a living, and you're stopping him. Why?
Harriet: Well, because I don't want his kind around here, in Walnut Grove. You should thank me.
John: What is his kind?
Harriet: Good Heavens, I shouldn't think I'd have to tell you that.
John: Well, you do!
Harriet: All right, then. I will. He is deformed. He's not like us. He's a troll, that's what he is! For Heaven's sake, you have eyes. You can see. Why, for Heaven's sake, he's spent his whole life in a sideshow!
John: Because people like you made him!
