Storyline

When Nellie Oleson is seriously injured after falling from Bunny, a horse that used to belong to Laura Ingalls, Nellie's mother blames Laura for the accident and orders the animal destroyed. But Laura secretly steals her still-beloved Bunny away from Mrs. Oleson's vengeance and resigns herself to the penance of waiting hand and foot on a demanding, bedridden Nellie.

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: [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!
