Eliza Jane fibs and says that she is getting married to Harve Miller who had come to help Almanzo take care of their property while Almanzo was working on the new land. She says this so that Laura will take over the Walnut Grove school and she won't have to go away to teach. Since she is leaving, that leaves the house for Almanzo and Laura. They decide to get married on Adam and Mary's anniversary so that the men can help each other remember when it is! When Charles goes to get the priest he sees Harve Miller in town and asks if he wants to surprise Eliza Jane and have a double wedding, but Harve tells him that he got married to someone last Sunday and Eliza Jane knew it. Charles doesn't spoil the news. Written by Anonymous

The portrait on the desk where Eliza Jane Wilder writes in her diary is actually a photo of the real Laura Ingalls Wilder. See more »


In this episode, set in 1885, Charles tells Almanzo, "Being positive is being wrong at the top of your voice." It is a paraphrase of an entry from Ambrose Bierce's "Devil's Dictionary," first published as "The Cynic's Word Book" in 1906. See more »


Almanzo James Wilder: Mr. Ingalls, no disrespect, but do you have any idea what your daughter's like?
Charles Ingalls: I think so, she's a lot like me.
Almanzo James Wilder: Well again, no disrespect so, but that must be mighty hard on Mrs. Ingalls.

Will you marry me?
24 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All hell breaks loose when Almanzo looses he land and drops a bomb of an announcement: he has to cancel the wedding. Laura is upset, but understands and accepts it. She's sad and Caroline can't stand it. She comes up with the perfect solution: she should take her previously offered teach job and help Almanzo earn the money they need for a home. But Almanzo is not thrilled with the news. A huge fight breaks out. Laura informs Almanzo that no matter what, she's taking the job.

Oh, but that's not the worst part! What follows is the fight of all fights when Laura gives him back the ring! Laura storms off thinking it's over. She can't stand to be around the man she loves anymore and decides to move away for good...

The story is so sweet and romantic. I wouldn't change a thing about it! I think what Eliza Jane did was nothing short of unconditional love. I hate to see Miss Wilder go, but I'm happy that Laura will be moving into the old house!

This is probably THE greatest moment of the entire nine series show - the last ten minutes when Laura leaves, Almanzo goes after her, and they marry...
