S01.E16: Family Quarrel

Recommended Posts

Quote

Divorce looms when Nels and his dog storm away from Harriet and the mercantile after the Olesons quarrel over the price of eggs. But the situation only gets more muddled when the townsfolk try to help them reconcile, prompting Harriet to pack her bags and causing some to wonder, a little wistfully, if Walnut Grove wouldn't be more peaceful if the volatile woman left town for good.

Yes, Walnut Grove might have been more peaceful without Harriet but it sure would have been BORING without her! She hadn't yet become the crazy clown of the latter seasons but I liked that the episode showed that somehow underneath it all, the Olesons actually DID have affection for each other!

I am lowkey in love with this podcast!!  The memories have been wonderful and I am currently reading my 8 year old Little House in the Bog Woods- which was always my favorite.  I remember childhood me being more outraged that Harriet never let Nells have a dog than any of the other shit she pulled.

How did I miss the fact that Laura and Willie were in real life brother and sister?

Snap out of it, OoogleEyes!

Also, the kid who plays the Garvey boy, and the one who plays Albert, are brothers.

Don't feel too bad. My mom only figured it out a few years ago when she read Allison Arngrim's book. I figured it out when she told me. Never even occurred to either one of us.

With all the grief that Harriet caused Caroline every time that she tried to engage in a simple transaction such as receiving payment for eggs, I would have more expected Caroline to slam the bowl of eggs down on Harriet’s head, with the parting words of “Here you go bitch, the eggs are on me, or rather you, today” :D
