Charles Ingalls: This is where you'll bunk. The straw's fresh. You can keep your clothes in the box there in the corner. You'll see the outhouse out that window. Nels said he packed you some work clothes in this case. Best get changed. We'll be ready to go.
Peter Lundstrom: I prefer to wear what I have on.
Charles Ingalls: Well, I don't prefer it. And you work for me. As long as you do, you'll do what I say.
