Quotes

Charles Ingalls: Albert, what you want and what's going to be are two entirely different things.
Albert Quinn Ingalls: I won't go!
Charles Ingalls: You'll do what I say!
Albert Quinn Ingalls: And if I don't?
Charles Ingalls: If you don't, then I'll ask Mr. Gibson to change his mind and press charges against you.
Albert Quinn Ingalls: You'd do that?
Charles Ingalls: I'd have to do that. I am not going to sit back and watch you destroy your life and your Mother's and Mine. I'm not going to do that. You're not the only one in this family. You're hurting all of us and I'm not going to let it happen anymore.

Changed Albert
29 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is the first of three very dark episodes in a row.

Albert is not adjusting well to city life, which is interesting since he lived on his own in the city before Charles came along. But he found some influential friends that weren't influencing him in the correct ways. A personality change was caused by drugs, as we'll soon learn.

Charles doesn't want Albert to go to the work house for three years, so he takes him back to Walnut Grove. I'm guessing he plans on leaving him there for Almanzo and Laura to raise, but he sticks around for awhile to make sure Albert adjusts alright.

Drug abuse is an awful thing. It has no loyalties or friends. Albert begins stealing from his friends and lying. Dr. Baker is a victim since he can provide (unknowingly, of course) Albert with the one thing he needs - morphine!
