Charles: (about the wrestling match) Almanzo.....to tell you the truth, if you hadn't run off when you did, I'd have quit.
Almanzo: To tell you the truth, Mr. Ingalls, so would I.
Charles: (scoffs) Go on, you can wash up in the kitchen.
Almanzo: Yes, sir. (leaves)
Charles: (to Caroline) What?
Caroline: (about Laura) Well, you gotta admit, she picked a better man than you did for her.
Charles: What bothers me the most about that young man is that he's such a liar.
Charles: Well, it's true. He could have beaten me anytime he wanted, and he knows it. Boy, it's tough getting old.
