  • Quotes

    • Laura: It's him! It's the Wild Boy!
      Jenny: But he's not wild!
      Almanzo: I said keep away from him! There's no telling what he's gonna do.
      Jenny: Please! Won't you just listen to me? He's not wild, I tell you! He's a mute! (walks over to Matthew) It'll be all right, Matthew. They won't hurt you. His name's Matthew. He can't talk, but he can hear. He scratched his name in the dirt over there. The reason he acts this way is because Dr. McQueen keeps him locked up in that cage. You'd act wild, too!
      Laura: I can't believe anybody would do something like this.
      Almanzo: What I can't understand is how he got here. Jenny, how long have you known about this?
      Jenny: (pauses) Just today. Well, see, some of us sneaked into the tent to see him. We were just gonna take a quick peek and leave, honest. Nancy started teasing him and hitting him with a cane. Well, I stopped her. When I was putting the cane back, he reached down and touched my arm. He was scared, and he had this look on his face like.....well, now I know that all he wanted was for someone to help him.
      Almanzo: And then he followed you home?
      Jenny: (nods) Uncle Manzo, do we have to tell Dr. McQueen where he is? All he's gonna do is lock him back up in that jail!
