  • Quotes

    • Harriet: (about the shoes the Ingalls are buying for Laura and Mary) That'll be, ah, three dollars for the two pairs.
      Nels: Those are going to be charged. I already discussed it with Mr. Ingalls.
      Harriet: Oh my, I just thought of something! Why, Nellie has an old pair of shoes that are practically like perfect, and she has grown right out of them, and I was going to give them to the needy in Mankato, but I think we should give them to the needy right here in Walnut Grove!
      Caroline: That's very kind of you, Mrs. Oleson, I'm sure, but we'll take these that we picked out.
      Harriet: Well, you know, I always say that charity does begin at home.
      Caroline: We don't need charity, Mrs. Oleson.
      Harriet: Well, what do you call it when you come in here and charge things? I mean, everything you see in this store, we have paid for.
      Caroline: I understand that--
      Harriet: Well, then, I don't see how beggars can afford to be choosers!
      Caroline: Thank you for your kind offer, Mr. Oleson. We'll be back when we can pay for these in cash. Come along, girls.
      Charles: (angrily pushes past Harriet) Excuse me, Mrs. Oleson.
      Harriet: Ungrateful snippets!
