Episode Quotes

Harriet Oleson: Now, I would say that's interesting. Wouldn't you say?
Melinda Foster: Interesting?
Harriet Oleson: Mm hm.
Melinda Foster: I would say that's probably the worst exhibition of bad taste I'll ever see! Oh! How could anyone pick that dreadful color?
Harriet Oleson: I agree with you completely, of course. But after all, they're just children. Well, I was trying to be kind. You know, they really come from a family that doesn't have very much culture.
Laura Ingalls: Hi, Mrs. Olseon!
Harriet Oleson: Oh, hello darling!
Laura Ingalls: Well, what do you think?
Harriet Oleson: Oh uh... well, uh... I just think it's lovely.
Laura Ingalls: Oh good, I think so too. And I don't care what Mr. Oleson says, the colors that you picked are just perfect.
Mary Ingalls Kendall: What color did you paint it?
Laura Ingalls: Pink and purple!
Mary Ingalls Kendall: Pink... and purple?
Laura Ingalls: Yeah.
Mary Ingalls Kendall: You know Laura, I'm... kinda glad I can't see it.


  • Goof (factual errors): When Mary is talking to the children in the opening scene she's asks when the Louisiana Purchase occurred. You can hear one child saying "19......" Instead of "18" for the year of purchase.
