Rev. Ethan Wilkins:
Jason, this is an important event in sister Clarke's life, our stopping here tonight. She never had a minister visit her before.
Well, I don't wonder at that. But that frog, pop - why, it made me sick!
Rev. Ethan Wilkins:
Suppose I'd called her attention to it, told her it was there? She never would have recovered from the mortification. The only time the minister ever stopped for her... it wasn't easy, but I swallowed it. That, sir, is my idea of courtesy. And I wish you not to forget it.

The author touches the heart with old story that relates to today's "me" society (which in many cases is without gratitude for the contributions of others). The acting is superb and conveys the emotions of the story without special effects needed. Recommend this movie highly to everyone, should be mandatory for those under 25.
