  • Quotes

    • Mary: We thought we'd go with you and Mr. Edwards to Springfield and learn all about trains. You always say there's nothing better than seeing things first-hand.
      Charles: Hey, now hold on. You'd be missing school.
      Laura: Not really, Pa. It would be just like school, only different.
      Mary: We could learn a lot.
      Charles: Well, you can learn just as much by going to school. You can learn everything you have to know.
      Laura: But Mr. Edwards is letting Carl go.
      Charles: Oh, he is?
      Laura: Yeah. I guess he'll be the only one getting extra credit.
      Charles: Carl, what did your Ma say about that?
      Carl: Well......
      Laura: She didn't say anything.
      Charles: Hmm. Well, if Grace thinks it'll all right, I guess I shouldn't stand in the way of higher education. You can go.
      Laura and Mary: Thanks, Pa!
      (the kids leave)
      Mary: You shouldn't have lied.
      Laura: I didn't yet.
      Mary: What do you mean you didn't? You said Mr. Edwards said he could go, and that his Ma didn't say anything about it.
      Laura: Well, all we have to do is ask him if Carl can go. Your Ma didn't say anything, did she, Carl?
      Carl: Of course not! She doesn't even know yet!
      Laura: There. You see? All we have to do is get him to say yes.
