PostSubject: Early Episodes With Willie But Not Nellie   Sat Jun 12, 2010 8:37 am

I watched "The Runaway Caboose" yesterday and noticed something unusual that I hadn't noticed before. This episode has Willie in it but not Nellie (nor Mr. or Mrs. Oleson for that matter). Willie is in two scenes -- where he gives Carl the fireworks in return for two aggies, and the next day when Willie asks Carl if he brought the aggies and Laura pushes him (one of the few times where Laura is the aggressor against Nellie or Willie, BTW). Off the top of my head, I can't think of any other early episodes that had Willie but not Nellie. Can anyone think of any others? After Nellie and Percival left for New York, of course, there were many episodes with Willie but not Nellie, but I'm trying to think of episodes from the time Nellie was still living in Walnut Grove.

I think there isn't any other with Willie but no Nellie...and think I've seen EVERY epie of the show...I don't remember if Nellie is in "Be my Friend". I suppose I must watch it again to verify the whole thing. However, I'm sure that Mrs. and Mr. Oleson where in it, tough. scratchead

I think "Be My Friend" may be another. I'll have to watch it again to check for sure. I remember the comical scene where Willie looks at corset ads, much to Mrs. Oleson's horror, while Mr. Oleson shrugs it off, and then Mrs. Oleson sees Willie and Laura outside with the baby, draws the wrong conclusion, and runs screaming, "NELS!!!"

I can't think of any other earlier episodes with Willie but not Nellie, but if there are, I'd like to watch them! if there are, I've probably seen them, I just don't remember.

I discovered another one today -- "For My Lady". In this one, Laura and Willie argue about whether fish bite better during a Full Moon. Laura stops by the mill to ask Charles, but he's not there. Mr. Hanson is unable to settle the dispute and since the bet was that Laura could prove it now, Laura had to give Willie her best aggie. That Willie sure liked his aggies! BTW, this episode had Mrs. Oleson in it but not Mr. Oleson.

Laura may have been right on the fishing question -- maybe. It looks like there is still considerable debate about it. See, for example, http://www.anglerguide.com/articles/522.html.

Thanks for the insight, Jes! And yes...Laura WAS right in the fishing issue she was discussing with Willie. I know for I'm a fisher too! I'm not so good fishing in the sea, but nobody can bet me fishing in riversides or creeks! greenS ShyGirl

You go fishing? Well! I love it too! And yes, I do think fish bite better in a full moon.

Yes. They do! And it's better not to make too much noise near the place you are fishing. HeeHee
