Quotes

Horace Benson: Mr. Ingalls, this hospital is for paying patients. This would hardly cover her bill.
Charles Ingalls: I know, Mr. Benson. That's why I'm giving you my personal note. I'm going to go home and sell the farm to pay the bill.
Horace Benson: I told you before, it isn't the policy of this hospital to extend credit...
Charles Ingalls: We're not talking about credit. We're talking about my daughter's life.
Horace Benson: I'm sorry, you don't understand...
Charles Ingalls: That's right, you don't understand, and you're not sorry.

Mary
28 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode focuses on Mary.

This is part 1 of a two part series in which Mary is gravely ill and in need of surgery.

To surprise her Pa, she decides to put the horse up while he goes to bathe in the creek. The horse is rather skittish and Jack barks which causes the nervous horse to kick her in the stomach. She'f fine at first, but soon develops a terrible infection which lands her in the hospital in Rochester.

The story is suspenseful. Oddly enough, it can remind us of hospitals today. Hospitals are not in it to take care of people. Sometimes we feel they are after our money - and they tend to forget we're only there because we're sick...

Everyone does a wonderful job in acting in this episode. The episode ends with a tearful reunion, help from a friend, and another goodbye.
