Almanzo: I didn't think you'd be here.
Laura: Why not? Didn't you think anybody else would bring me?
Almanzo: I didn't mean that. I don't know what I mean. (pauses) I'm sorry about before. I didn't mean that, either.
Laura: I know. (sits down next to him; long silence)
Almanzo: So, who did you come with?
Laura: (smiles) My Pa.
Almanzo: I came with my sister.
Laura: I know.
Almanzo: Since we're both here.....maybe I could kind of be your escort.
Laura: You may.
