07x01 - Laura Ingalls Wilder (1) Season 7 / Episode 1: - Laura Ingalls Wilder (1)

Mrs. Oleson: Do you know what I think it is? I think it's that strange food you make for your husband!
Nellie Oleson: But he likes it, and it doesn't make him sick!
Mrs. Oleson: Well, of course HE likes it - he's used to it! He's Jewish. A person can get used to ANYTHING! Look at the cannibals... they eat each other, and they think it's just dandy!
07x01 - Laura Ingalls Wilder (1) Season 7 / Episode 1: - Laura Ingalls Wilder (1)

Charles Ingalls: Mr. Gray?
Matt Gray: I thought you were going off to pray.
Charles Ingalls: Well, I just wanted to apologize for the actions of my future son-in-law. He just doesn't understand you're a business man and these things happen. He's just a boy, you know what I mean?
Matt Gray: I suppose.
Charles Ingalls: It's like when you made that offer... it was a very generous offer of a hundred dollars for his crop... that was a hundred dollars, wasn't it?
Matt Gray: That's right.
Charles Ingalls: Well, when you made that offer he really got upset. See, he was planning on taking the money from the crop and pay off the note... Buy a house for my daughter and himself and live on the land for the rest of their lives. I mean, you can't blame him for being upset.
Matt Gray: 'Course. But it's business.
Charles Ingalls: Well, I know that and you know that, but like I said he's just a boy. I mean, he's ornery and he's hot-headed, you know. Hey, you know who he reminds me off? His future father in law. [Punches Graves so hard that he falls to the ground] . You know when he's going to sell you that crop for a hundred dollars? When hell freezes over!

Season 7 Trivia

  • Episode 13 - Goof (revealing mistake): The name on the windows of Nellie's restaurant changes from "Nellie's" to "Caroline's" on several occasions.
  • Episode 01 - The real Laura Ingalls Wilder quit her job as a teacher once she was married.
  • Episode 13 - Goof (factual errors): Benjamin Cohen refuses to eat the roast beef Mrs. Oleson prepared because the meat isn't kosher, then proceeds to eat fruit and vegetables from the same (tainted) plate.
  • Episode 13 - Goof (factual errors): Harriet offers Percival's mother a piece of chocolate cake. However, she should not have eaten it, because she did not know how Harriet greased the pan. If it was greased with lard, it would have been considered Kosher in the Jewish religion, since it comes from hogs.
  • Episode 02 - Goof (anachronisms): In this episode, set in 1885, Charles tells Almanzo, "Being positive is being wrong at the top of your voice." It is a paraphrase of an entry from Ambrose Bierce's "Devil's Dictionary," first published as "The Cynic's Word Book" in 1906.
