[to Samantha; when they meet at the alley behind the orphanage]
Mrs. Frouchy says that she'll place me out if I don't behave.
What does she mean?
To place me on the orphan train... to get adopted by a family *far away!* In my train, it goes really fast to the mid-west.
With Jenny and Bridget?

This movie was terrific! I am 13 and I have two American Girl dolls myself. I have read all of Samantha's books and I found the movie really good! Some scenes sounded like soap opera, and some of the acting was a little off, but otherwise it was great! It must have been really hard for Nellie and her sisters. I would have done the same thing if I were in Samantha's place! I don't know what some thought of this movie, but it was great for me! It was so cool and I LOVED the scenery. The Aunt Cornelia and Uncle Gard sounded so fake sometimes. It was kinda obvious. I can't wait to see the movie again! I was mad when commercial brakes came on because I wanted to watch it! But, it was good anyway!
