Laura Ingalls: If I had a remembrance book, I'd write about the day we came to Plum Creek and saw the house in the ground. I can still remember Pa and Mr. Hanson and how they walked and looked and talked and how we wondered what they said.
Charles Ingalls: Well, Ingalls family, as soon as you finish soaking your feet, we've got a wagon to unload.
Caroline Ingalls: We're home?
Charles Ingalls: We're home.
Laura Ingalls: We have our own window and we can see the stars.
Mary Ingalls: We're supposed to be sleeping when the stars are out. And it'll sure be nice to hear the rain on the roof then to have it get us all wet!
Laura Ingalls: And I've decided something.
Charles Ingalls: What's that, Half pint?
Laura Ingalls: Home is the nicest word there is.
Charles Ingalls: One of the nicest, that's for sure!
Harriet Oleson: Mr. Ingalls, do you know how many people move out here and plant their crops and run up more bills then they can hope to pay for, then skip out in the dead of night? Hm? Now, I can show you a hole drawer full...
Charles Ingalls: Mrs. Olson, I can assure you I have no intention of running out in the middle of the night. Thank you.
Laura Ingalls: In my remembrance book, I put down how Pa used the daylight and a lot of the dark. He said he was counting the days 'till he could stay home and just work the farm. The rest of us only counted the days 'till Sunday - the Lord's day when Pa took us all to church.
Caroline Ingalls: If God understands farmers, he understands farmer's wives.
Laura Ingalls: That was the happiest homecoming ever. Because here, Pa said he'd harvested a crop he didn't know he had planted. A harvest of friends!
Caroline Ingalls: Charles Ingalls!
Charles Ingalls: Caroline? Oh, you're back already, huh?
Caroline Ingalls: Earlier than expected, obviously.
Charles Ingalls: What are you talking about?
Caroline Ingalls: You couldn't stay awake to go to church and here you are working.
Charles Ingalls: Oh now Caroline, I woke up and you were gone. I couldn't just sit around the house doing nothing.
Caroline Ingalls: Charles, the Lord's day is set aside for worship and for rest.
Charles Ingalls: Caroline, now I got a field to plow and God ain't gonna plow it for me.
Caroline Ingalls: That is sacrilegious!
Charles Ingalls: Well to you, maybe, but not to God. He understands famrers.
