"Little House on the Prairie: Portrait of Love (#7.6)" (1980)
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: You made me promise not to argue with your mother and I have been trying, have I now?
Nellie Oleson Dalton: Yes you have.
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: I didn't yell when your mother insisted that you have supper lying down on the sofa, did I?
Nellie Oleson Dalton: No.
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: And I didn't yell when your mother started serving breakfast in bed rather I was up or not, now did I?
Nellie Oleson Dalton: No you didn't.
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: No.
Nellie Oleson Dalton: But now... Just now... Your Mother informed me that I am no longer allowed to sleep in the same bed with my wife!
[Turns angrily and gets face-to-face with Caroline]
Nellie Oleson Dalton: Mrs. Ingalls
[Nods acknowledgement]
Nellie Oleson Dalton: ... Nellie, I'm going to ask your permission to allow me to break my promise and yell at your Mother.
Nellie Oleson Dalton: [Hears her mother calling] You have my permission.

Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Because I don't want her to lie down. I want her to stand up! AND I want her to sit up when she's having her dinner... AND if she is going to have breakfast in bed, she is going to do so with me... And I'm going to sleep every night with my wife in our room! And, if I want to hold my wife, or kiss my wife, I will do so anytime or anywhere I darn well choose to like right now.


"Little House on the Prairie: He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not: Part 2 (#6.24)" (1980)
Nellie Oleson Dalton: I thought you could use some pie. It's nice and hot.
Charles Ingalls: No thanks, Nellie.
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Don't be afraid, Mr. Ingalls. You might be surprised.
Charles Ingalls: I'm sure I will be.

Nellie Oleson Dalton: I love you! I love you!
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: I don't know what to say.
Nellie Oleson Dalton: Well, do you?
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Yes. I love you too. But what about uh... I'm not going to get any taller
Nellie Oleson Dalton: And I'm not going to get any shorter!


"Little House on the Prairie: To See the Light: Part 1 (#7.10)" (1980)
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Now, maybe your father doesn't care that your mother's fat, but I don't want you following in your mother's footsteps!

Harriet Oleson: For your information, I'm not fat. I'm large boned!
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Oh?
Harriet Oleson: Yes!
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: That would be difficult to determine since your bones are buried so deep beneath the surface.
Harriet Oleson: Nellie, are you going to stand there and let this little thing insult your Mother like that?
Nellie Oleson Dalton: I have to, Mother. He's right.


"Little House on the Prairie: He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not: Part 1 (#6.23)" (1980)
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: You know, your father is paying me a lot of money to teach you. The least you can do is make an attempt.
Nellie Oleson: I didn't ask to be taught. I didn't ask for this restaurant. And your short.
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Shall we try again?
Nellie Oleson: Why don't you make a SHORT cake? How 'bout some SHORT ribs? Do we need any SHORTing? You know, you really oughta write a book "Short cuts to cooking!"
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Would you like to try again?
Nellie Oleson: That only took you a short time.
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Would you like to try...
Nellie Oleson: No I wouldn't! I wouldn't like to try again! I hate this place, and I hate cooking, and I hate short people! My mother gave me this place so I can get a husband, did you know that? Well, I don't want a husband, and I don't want this place, and I don't want to learn how to separate eggs!
[picks up eggs and starts throwing them into the bowl of egg mixture]
Nellie Oleson: There, Quasimodo, I'm all done!
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: [Looks at Nellie for a few moments, then picks up the bowl of egg yolks and broken eggs and pours them over Nellie's head. Nellie's mouth pops open in absolute shock] . I also have a very short temper. Why your Mother ever built this place for you, I'll never know! You certainly can't cook, and you certainly have no right to be dealing with the public. And as pretty as you are, you don't need a restaurant to catch a husband in the first place.


"Little House on the Prairie: Come Let Us Reason Together (#7.13)" (1981)
Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Is this what religion is all about? Anger? Fighting? Hatred? Well, if it is, Nellie and I don't want any part of it.
