When Samantha returns home after defending Nellie and the girls against Eddie, she is practicing piano and when she looks out the window, she sees Nellie walking across the lawn with a basket of laundry while wearing a black dress and white apron. There is not enough time between Samantha leaving Nellie and her practicing piano for Nellie to have changed and begun her chores.
Also, as she would have been new, the housekeeper or head maid would have gone over with her what she was to do and therefore she would not have headed straight into chores, making it even less likely for Samantha to have seen her working while she practiced piano. See more »
[Narrating as she and Eddie were running around]
It all began one day last April. I was living with my Grandmary in Mount Bedford, New York. And she was determined to teach me to become a proper young lady.

This movie was terrific! I am 13 and I have two American Girl dolls myself. I have read all of Samantha's books and I found the movie really good! Some scenes sounded like soap opera, and some of the acting was a little off, but otherwise it was great! It must have been really hard for Nellie and her sisters. I would have done the same thing if I were in Samantha's place! I don't know what some thought of this movie, but it was great for me! It was so cool and I LOVED the scenery. The Aunt Cornelia and Uncle Gard sounded so fake sometimes. It was kinda obvious. I can't wait to see the movie again! I was mad when commercial brakes came on because I wanted to watch it! But, it was good anyway!
