Storyline

Adam & Luke Simms move to Walnut Grove. Luke falls in love with Nellie. Nellie likes him but he doesn't like to wear shoes and he wears overalls without a shirt over his long underwear, so Harriet thinks he is beneath her and demands that Nellie stop seeing them. Luke gets Mary to help him pick out a ring for Nellie's birthday and Nellie thinks Luke was playing with her affections. Nellie cries to Miss Beadle and Miss Beadle goes to Mr. Simms to tell him that she won't have that kind of treatment in her school. Mr. Simms explains the situation and Miss Beadle starts to fall in love with Adam Simms. Luke and Nellie decide that they are going to elope. They get married and go to the hotel. That is where Harriet, Nels, Adam, and Ms. Beadle find them. They take them back to the Justice of the Peace and have him un-marry Luke and Nellie, but while they are there, Adam Simms and Eva Beadle get married. Written by Anonymous

This is another one of my favorite episodes. Yes, I know I have a lot of them! I love the romance between Eva Beadle and Adam Sims. It's so beautiful and simple, and really comes together when a young love between Nellie Olsen and a new boy in school. Interestingly, the new boy in school wears overalls over underwear and no shoes. He's the most unlikely person for Nellie to be interested in, yet it seems to be love at first sight.

The story is sweet, and Nellie acts almost human in this episode. She's pretty sweet when she's in love. Perhaps that's the key. It's amazing how love-swept she really is. She even shares a kiss with her intended!

Mrs. Olsen, though, is still her own self. She totally rejects the romance between Luke and Nellie and does everything she can possible do to stop it. But true love can't be stomped out. In fact, when Harriet really tries to put the brakes on, they take a drastic measure. I'm not going to reveal any of this because it's so good.

The picnic scene is my favorite part (besides the ending). I think the proposal is so romantic!!!
