    • Laura: These are my sign language books. They can teach you to talk with your hands.
      Mr. Edwards: They can?
      Laura: It's the way deaf people talk.
      Mr. Edwards: Matthew can hear just fine.
      Laura: But he can't talk, can he?
      Mr. Edwards: That's right, he can't. Trying to understand that boy is about as easy as scratching your ear with your elbow!
      Laura: Well, I can change that. I can teach Matthew how to talk with his hands, and I can teach you and Jenny how to understand him.
      Jenny: Wouldn't that be wonderful?
      Mr. Edwards: You think you can? I'm kind of a bonehead.
      Laura: (laughs) I know I can.
