I loved watching this today on DVD with the deleted scenes back in. A little more special.

So there were deleted scenes added back into this one? I have only seen this episode twice, once on youtube a few months ago, and now on the remastered DVDs. I didn't notice any new scenes, but I'm not that familiar with this one yet to necessarily notice them very well.
This is another one of my favorite episodes! I love how Caroline took over the teaching job when Miss Beadle was hurt.... Of course Harriet had to make sure that Caroline wouldn't show favoritism since her own girls were in the school.... After Harriet asked that, Caroline decided on the spot that she would teach! That was great.
I also loved how Caroline helped Abel gain the confidence to come back to the school. Everything was working so well, and then of course Harriet came into the school and destroyed everything that Caroline had been doing. I love how after Caroline walked out, and quit as the teacher, Harriet decided to teach. When it is time for school that morning, Harriet rings the bell, but there aren't any kids there for school. Nellie and Willie come out of the school, and Harriet asks them "Didn't you tell the children that I was going to teach today?" Then Nellie and Willie reply, "We did... that's the trouble!" I love that scene!
I would have to say the ending was the best part, when Caroline talked to Abel again. I love how she used the same sort of mentality that Abel had about going back to school, to show him that he could go back, and that he could learn. It was great when he read for her at the very end, and she got to see all her hard work paying off! Very nice ending!
