Trivia

The scene where "Nellie" Alison Arngrim was knocked off Bunny by the tree branch was filmed while Allison was sitting down. A piece of Plexiglas was put in front of her face and the tree branch was pulled back in front of the Plexiglas. She was directed to scream and when the tree limb hit the Plexiglas, she was to fall over, making it look like she was knocked off Bunny by the tree limb. See more »

Quotes

[Laura finds out that Nellie has been pretending to be paralyzed. Instead of confronting Nellie for her lies and for forcing Laura to serve her, Laura finds a better way to pay her back. She takes Nellie in her wheelchair to the top of the hill overlooking the town. Laura waits till she sees Mrs. Oleson passing by, driving a cart]
Laura: [calls loudly, waving her hands] Mrs. Oleson! Mrs. Oleson, I'm here!
[Mrs. Oleson stops the cart, looks upward and sees Laura and Nellie on the hill top]
Mrs. Oleson: [angrily] And......

Evilness!
13 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If ever you want to watch an episode where Nellie and Harriet are evil, this is the episode to watch. I don't think there is another episode that shows just how nasty these two can be!

After Laura gives Bunny to Laura in Christmas of Season 1, this is the first episode that even mentions Bunny. But Nellie's treatment isn't very good and she whips the horse. When the horse spooks with Nellie on it, she's injured. She claims that she can't feel her legs.

But before long, we realize that's not true. Nellie keeps pretending just so she can get everything she needs. She is extra nice to Nellie so she can hurt Laura by making her do all her homework and by keeping her and Jason from being friends.

Harriet orders Bunny shot, but Laura hides Bunny at her house. When Harriet finds out, she is very, very upset. Then Laura finds out the truth.

Probably one of the most classic and vengeful scenes of the entire episode, Laura gives Nellie a shove down a hill. It's quite funny. I must give this episode a ten for the final scene...CLASSIC!
