    • TRIVIA (3)

      • It is very unlikely that Hester Sue, a black female, could have purchased land, and made the transaction so quickly. Following the Civil War, 19 of 24 northern states still did not allow blacks to vote, and women in general were considered the property of their husbands.

      • It is very out of character for Harriet Oleson to grab Sam (a black man) by the hand in excitement after the work he did for her, then insist he eat at the restaurant for half price a couple weeks in a row. Based on her stinginess, plus her solid track record of racism, neither of these actions make sense.

      • Up until the very last scene, there are absolutely no children who appear in the episode. They appear briefly at the end with no speaking lines, but that's it. The same goes for Laura and Almanzo.
