Almanzo: (about the horse) You could have crippled him. Maybe you have!
Perley Day: I bet Doc Baker twenty dollars on that race!
Almanzo: (pauses, punches him in the face) You're never gonna change! You've done the same all your life--do what you want, no matter what the consequences to other people! When you ran away from home, you broke Ma's heart. Then you show up every now and then when you need a few dollars. Then you disappear again for months, years, without a word! Well, that's not gonna happen here. I want you out, today!
