Caroline: Don't you realize that this senseless squabbling is ruining our church, hurting our children.
Mr. Kennedy: your children maybe not mine. I told you before the matter is closed, and you can tell that husband of yours its going to stay this way till talk of this DAMN BELL comes to an end and we find ourselves a new Minister!
Caroline: I'll thank you to watch your launguage!
Mr. Kennedy: My house i can say what i like!
Caroline: You would. you don't care that your neighbours are speaking anymore and that your children and mine are ACHING over this terrible feud!
Mr. Kennedy: I told you before Mrs. Ingalls the matter is closed!
Caroline: [Mrs. Ingalls leaves and slams the door]
Hans Dorfeler: [Discussing the new Church bell] Mr.Ingalls were a poor community, if we accept the gift of the bell that way it won't cost us anything.
Lars Hanson: so if you want a new church that should also be for free?
Hans Dorfeler: Hanson that's not true
Mr. Kennedy: Not exactly for nothing Hanson, your going to be standing over there waiting to sell the lumber!
Lars Hanson: Mr.Kennedy, if you would keep a cival tongue in your head we might get something accomplished HERE!
[He says this with anger]
Harriet Oleson: Well, my husband and I would like to contribute the bell.
Reverend Robert Alden: That's mighty generous.
Harriet Oleson: We'll contribute the bell... and the plaque.
Lars Hanson: What... plaque?
Harriet Oleson: Dedicating it... in our name! After all, we are paying for it.
Mr. Kennedy: Now, I don't know about the rest of you, but... I feel this is God's house. And we built it with our own hands. I don't think the Lord's gonna like it much if we put somebody else's name on it.
Charles Ingalls: Grownups can be more stubborn.
Laura Ingalls: Why?
Charles Ingalls: Because they've had a lot more time to practice.
Nellie Oleson: Wait till I tell my mother!
Mary Ingalls: No. He wants it to be our secret.
Nellie Oleson: Well!
Laura Ingalls: If you tell your mother, you won't have anybody to play with.
Nellie Oleson: [Mouth pops open in shock]
Laura Ingalls: Or... anybody to be mean to!
Nellie Oleson: [Mouth opens even wider]
Willie Oleson: She's right.
Nellie Oleson: All right. I'll help.
