I don't understand how come mary got to marry adam before she turned 16. & laura had to be 16?. So i guess 16 was considred "Grown up " back then? Today 16 is still considred a kid.

Laura looked nice with her hair done up like that.She looked really mature and grown up

I liked this season where "half-pint" grew up. I remember her grown up picture being on the cover of People.....with the title "Half-pint grows up"
She really did get more attractive as she grew up.

I always enjoyed her tv movies too

I just saw this one last week........I love the innocence back then. The sweet little kiss by the two of them at the end of the episode sent shivers down my spine.

It didn't exactly send shivers down Melissa's spine......
This is a perfect example of why they call it acting...........

"I was never as relieved as when I heard Mike, who directed the episode, yell cut. I felt like I took my first real breath in a week. I turned and saw my mother, the woman who had told me that tampons were for makeup, standing just off camera, standing with tears in her eyes. She gave me a hug before I hurried off to the craft service table and popped some chips in my mouth to get rid of any cooties."

This episode was filmed in Jan. 1980. Gilbert would not be sixteen until May of that year. They should've waited until May to film this episode. I don't know how much difference three months would've made but the show's execs were nervous about pairing a twenty-something guy with a teenage girl, so every little bit would help.

Pretty tough to wait until May and hold up a production schedule. The fact of the matter is that Almanzo Wilder was ten years older than Laura.l
When they shot this episode Dean was 3 months shy of 24 and Melissa was just shy of 16.

HISTORIC FACT
When Laura was just 15, and Almanzo was 25, he began courting her.........I don't know what the issue is.........in actuality it was pretty close to fact....

Luckily "kissing scenes" in LHOP wasn't like other shows, they were pretty chaste. : )
Still, it must feel weird to have a stage kiss be your first.

Yes but this episode was aired in February, whereas the next episode, "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not" wasn't aired until May, so it could've been done.

Yes I know I'm an obsessive-compulsive perfectionist, but people mature so rapidly in adolescence that I think Melissa might have changed enough in 3 months to actually see some difference. This was such a crucial episode and even the most subtle change could've made a difference. Of course this is all moot point since it was over 30 years ago and they can't go back & re-film it now.

I'm glad you think 90 days would have made a huge difference. You are certainly entitled to your opinion. But as one perfectionist to another, I disagree!

This was such a crucial episode and even the most subtle change could've made a difference. Of course this is all moot point since it was over 30 years ago and they can't go back & re-film it now.

We have to remember this was more about how Melissa's fans and fans of the show in general would accept Laura being involved with Almanzo (played by Dean Butler who was several years older) than with historical fact. In the 1970s, it wasn't typical for a sixteen-year-old girl to be dating a twenty-five year old man. The idea is proposterous even now. While I don't think it would be cost effective to hold up a production schedule, Landon being the genius that he was knew he had to be sensitive to that element. That's why there are crazy episodes in Season 7 that didn't put Laura and Almanzo into situations where they had to portray a very in love, chemistry driven couple--The In-Laws, The Nephews. And when you look at Season 7 as a whole, not a lot of the episodes focused on Laura and Almanzo's marriage. Even those that did, portrayed them in a more humorous light, like Divorce, Walnut Grove Style.

Since Melissa is now a grown woman with kids, we might not remember what a big deal it was back when she starred in the CBS(?) movie, The Soul Collector in 1999, in which she had intimate scenes with a man for the first time. That's more than 10 years after LHOP ended, but people still talked about it.

This one was really cute! Smile

This was the duchess of cambridges take on how she felt when William proposed during their official engagement interview with ITN reporter Tom Bradby. There was a real giggle at the end. Cute.
