Brownie: Well we could find dat.

Clerk of Court: The judge says we have to be careful about this sort of thing.

Young Olaf: What sort of ting?

Clerk of Court: German nationals... German nationals engage in prostitution, they encourage polygamy, they harbor dangerous political convictions. Are you aware of the Espionage Act of 1916?

Inge: Dreams? Yes, you have?

Young Olaf: I have work, I don't have dreams.

Inge: [pushes him in a rage] Crows have dreams!

Young Olaf: [correcting her] "Ducks".

Inge: ...pheasants, all have dreams. But not you!

Young Olaf: Ducks don't have dreams. They get cold, they fly south.

Harmo: I can help you out.

Young Olaf: With our mortgage?

Harmo: Sure.

Young Olaf: Banking and farming don't mix.

Old Inge: [reading] A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness; but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

Donna Torvik: Yeah, it does.

Mae Torvik: What if I don't remember her?

Old Lars: I have a photograph...

Old Inge: Olaf died, Frandsen.

Old Frandsen: [considering for a moment] No. Olaf is in the fields.

Old Inge: [slowly glancing out the window and remembering]
