Quotes

Adam Kendall: All right. Whose turn is it for prayers?

James: Mine. Dear Lord, thank you for all your blessings and thank you for all the folks of Walnut Grove who helped us today. And I know you'll do something bad to the folks who didn't help.

Adam Kendall: James.

James: Yes, sir?

Adam Kendall: Prayers are for thanking the Lord, not telling Him to punish people.

James: I didn't tell Him to do nothing. I just said I knew He would!

Adam Kendall: Just finish the prayer, James.

James: Yes, sir. Do what you think is best, Lord and God bless all our loved ones. Amen.

Charles Ingalls: [to Jonathan] Why don't you come to Church with us on Sunday? It helps, believe me.

Jonathan Garvey: Thank God for letting my wife die? That's what He did, ain't it? That's what He did for me. He let her die and you want me to praise Him?

Charles Ingalls: Jonathan.

Jonathan Garvey: No. If you want to believe, that's fine for you, but not for me.

Charles Ingalls: You believe and you know it.

Jonathan Garvey: I don't want to. I don't want to believe. It's easier if I don't. Cuz if there is a God, Charles, he let your grandson die and he let my Alice die. And I don't want to be believing in a God who would do that.

Charles Ingalls: Why is God responsible? It's just something that happened.

Jonathan Garvey: Because he could have stopped it. I read about all them miracles in the Bible. If he could perform them miracles, then why didn't he perform one the other night? Why didn't he stop it? Tell me, Charles. Why?

Jonathan Garvey: I just don't seem to know what I'm doing. Oh, dear God, am I supposed to forget her?

Charles Ingalls: No. Dear God, no, you don't forget her. Time doesn't make you forget, not somebody you loved. You're gonna remember Alice and I'm gonna remember my grandson. But we're gonna go on and we need to try to live in a way that would make them proud. We've got to try.

Jonathan Garvey: Oh, God, I can't!

Charles Ingalls: You can.

Jonathan Garvey: I can't!

Charles Ingalls: Yes, you can. If you really love Alice, you can.

Jonathan Garvey: I can't!

Charles Ingalls: You can! Andy's not just your son. He's a living part of Alice, a part of the woman you love. Every time you hurt him, you hurt Alice and you hurt yourself!
