Laura: (about yelling at her father) I'm sorry......I'm so sorry. (hugs Caroline, starts crying)
Caroline: Oh, there, there. It's all right.
Laura: I didn't mean to hurt him.
Caroline: Well, of course you didn't--no more than you meant to give that pup to Nellie.
Laura: Then you knew I wasn't really going to?
Caroline: Well, I came here, didn't I? To your favorite place. I knew you weren't going into town. (smiles) Your Pa was plowing in the fields when I left. Sometimes, working hard helps when you're hurting.
Laura: What will I say to him?
Caroline: You don't have to say anything. Just go to him.
