Charles: (to an angry Laura about putting the Sanderson children in different homes) I wanted to explain to you why.
Laura: You don't have to. Besides, I'm late. I'm taking the puppy into town.
Charles: Oh, you found a home for him then?
Laura: Sure did. I'm taking him to Nellie.
Charles: I thought you didn't want Nellie to have him.
Laura: I changed my mind! He'll have a good home, just like Alicia will. It doesn't matter if he's happy, just so long as he has a home--any home!
