PostSubject: Favorite Scene   Sun Apr 27, 2008 2:21 pm

This may have been covered before, but the "favorite episodes" thread made me wonder about favorite scenes. There are a lot of great scenes, but one that really stands out for me is the barn loft scene in The Richest Man in Walnut Grove. This is the scene in which Charles finds Laura crying in the barn loft after Miss Beadle had told Charles that Laura had run off while Miss Beadle was buying tablets for Laura. Charles quickly cheers Laura up by explaining the value of hard work and pointing out that it's Nellie and Willie who have the problem. Laura starts to climb down the ladder and just when you think the scene is over, she climbs back to the top and says, "Pa? I just love you so much!" Wow, it's hard to top that!

My favorite scene? That's a tough one. I would have to say that the end of Journey In The Spring when Laura says goodbuy to her grandpa. I always catch myself tearing up at the end. :crySC:

My favourite scene is when Charles and Mr Edwards find Laura on Jonathan's mountain in The Lord is My Shepherd. Laura and her pa see each other for the first time in days and they run to each other and cry. I don't have to see ony other part of the show to cry when that scene comes along. I love it!

You guys have already mentioned some great scenes! Some of my other favorites are at the end of "Fagin", Laura calls Albert her brother for the first time, then sees him and they hug each other while Charles looks on saying, "Those are my kids!"

Another is from "The Raccoon", when they find out Jasper wasn't rabbid, Charles is hugging Laura saying, "My baby's all right". I get choked up just thinking about it!

In "Home Again", when Albert and Charles are talking over breakfast in Mr. Edwards' cabin and Charles tells him how proud he is of him.

Even though I hardly watch "Look Back to Yesterday" or "The Last Farewell" b/c how emotional they both make me, both of those are loaded with great scenes as well.

How about good humorous scenes? One that comes to mind is when Willie is building a cannon in the storeroom and the rest of the family hears the explosion and comes running outside, all nearly hysterical, only yo discover that Willie tried to "launch" Harriet's muff.

Let's see... good humor scenes? My favorite would have to be in Harriet's Happenings. "You're suppose to print the facts Harriet, not rummors"! "Well it was a fact that there are rummors"! Funny how all of the funny scenes have something to do with Harriet!

Favorite scenes? Hum...Too much to mention them! grinsmiley

But some of my favorite ones are:

-When Laura reads her essai in "Country Girls" depicting how wonderful Ma was.

-When Mary and Laura helps their Pa in his work in the last scene of "A Harvest of Friends" and all the Walnut Grove's Neighbors hurries to help them too.

-When Mary reads her beatiful Psalm at church after being back to Walnut Grove some days after she graduates for Vinton's College for the Blind.

When Mr. Hanson does his last walk to the Church after being so ill in "There's no Place like Home".

-When Laura and Almanzo have their little dance , when Laura made her "Sweets Sixteen"

-Laura's Marriage's scene.

-When Walnut Grove neighbors goes away singing "Onward Christian Soldiers" in "The Last Farewell". This scene always gives me chills!

Of course, there is more than these...But let me think a little about other favorite ones! grinsmiley

Fantastic scenes, all! John, I think I caught myself almost quoting Charles from that scene you mentioned the other day. That is the one where he says something to the affect of "Any honest work a man can get to make his way in this world is a good job," right? Love that scene to death.

For some reason I'm drawing a blank when it comes to a favorite scene. I do, however, LOVE the scene in Love (no pun intended) where Mr. Edwards yells at Laura in his cabin and really expresses a side to his character we don't always get to see through that frustration. And then, of course, the follow-up to that being the last scene of that episode, with Mr. Edwards turning away and walking off into the woods while he sings "Old Dan Tucker" ... just something about the way they showed that really makes it great.

But, of course, who doesn't love the scene where Charles starts laughing over Mr. and Mrs. Garvey's divorce? Did anybody not find themselves laughing along with the characters? It really WAS contagious!

Coach Jon, yes, that was the scene I was referring to. Charles adds, "Hard-working folks only smell bad to people who having nothing better to do than stick their noses in the air." Later on, Laura repeats this to Nellie and adds, "Well, whenever you stick your nose in the air with me, Nellie, it's gonna get punched!" Yeah, the laughing scene at the end of the episode where the Garveys are going to get divorced (I think it's "The High Cost of Being Right") makes me laugh, as does the scene at the end of "To Live With Fear", when Mr. Edwards breaks through the tunnel cave-in to rescue Charles.

As for other funny scenes, there are lots involving the Olesons. The one that stands out is the one where Nellie is trying to help Mrs. Oleson fit into a corset. Nellie tries to pull it tight, but the strings break, and Mrs. Oleson goes flying out into the dining room and falls face first into some poor customer's plate. She then grabs the tablecloth to cover up and goes running out of the restaurant to the mercantile. And of course, there's the great, "Nels, make her a widow!", line.

What about in Family Quarrel where Harriet smashes the eggs over poor Nels! And the infectious laugh of Charles afterward when Caroline is telling him about it makes me laugh even more! ROTFL

I do love the extremely long laugh sequences that occasionally appear on the show. The only other one I can think of from off the top of my head is at the end of "The Long Road Home" in Season Two... right after the man joins them on the outside of the train with a line that goes something like "He found out I was Irish" or something to that affect. Good stuff.

I think that is my favorite one!! I crack up just thinking about the way Nels looks at Caroline when Harriet leaves the room, and then the way Charles laughs when she tells him about it! ROTFL

A couple more funny scenes:


  • Bunny -- Laura pushes Nellie down the hill in her wheelchair and into the pond. Nellie gets up and walks out of the pond, causing Mrs. Oleson to faint.
  • The Rivals -- Laura puts apples down her dress to make it look like she has "bumps". Laura is called to the blackboard to work a math problem. One of her "bumps" falls out and rolls on the floor. Miss Beadle asks, "Laura, do you have to go to the outhouse?"
