  • Jenny wallows in self-pity, only to be smacked out of it by the Queen of Self-Pity, Laura!

    Laura's up-in-arms pep talk to Jenny in which she blasts her for being so selfish as to wish to be reunited with her parents - via suicide - is some sound advice; however, coming from Laura, isn't it a little out-of-character? How many episodes did we witness the Half-Pint run away, throw a fit, talk back to and disobey Pa, disregard advice, and otherwise indulge in totally selfish, destructive behavior in order to solace herself? A more fitting speech from Laura would have been to empathize with Jenny and say, "You know, I can relate because when I was your age - and up until about two years ago - I thought and acted just like you."
