Quotes

Isaiah Edwards: No it ain't alright. It ain't alright at all. Look Charles, I got mad at you the other day because... well, I wasn't mad at you. I was made at me. You were right. I was alone because I made that choice. Don't ask me why, I don't know. Guilt... Fear... I don't know. If I knew the reason, I wouldn't be where I am right now... It's just that I think these children oughta stay together. Grace, I know this ain't the time or the place, but if we're gonna have ourselves a family, we oughta get ...

Remembering Tearfully
4 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though this episode will bring as many tears to your eyes as the first part, the tears are more happy than sad. The Sanderson children lost their mother in the last episode, and Charles is looking for a home for them. Unfortunately, Charles can't find anybody who is willing to take all three children. It looks like he will have to split them up.

I must say that this is probably my favorite Mr. Edwards episode. He does a lot of soul searching to see what he wants out of life, and what he wants is...well, you'll have to watch it to see!

My favorite part is Mr. Edwards' speech at the end. Another good scene is one of the earliest Mother-Daughter scenes between Caroline and Laura. I love their talks. Caroline always just lays it out there without sweetening it up.

I am a bit confused though. At the beginning of the first episode, Charles goes to Sleepy Eye in the morning and plows in the afternoon (which could be fall I suppose). Then later it's hot. Then later it's raining. But in just a couple days, it seems it's Thanksgiving, and there is no sign of winter. A bit confusing if you ask me...
