Laura Ingalls[edit]

  • Home is the nicest word there is.
  • Hard working folks only smell bad to people who have nothing better than stick their noses in the air! Well, whenever you stick your nose in the air with me, Nellie Oleson, it's going to get punched! (Laura to Nellie in, 2.01 The Richest Man in Walnut Grove)

Isaiah Edwards[edit]

  • Lemon verbena! Anyone who wears lemon verbena is a friend of mine! (Isaiah to Jenny in, 9.01 Times Are Changing)

Andrew Garvey[edit]

  • My pa doesn't know anything about football (Andy to his friends in episode 5.03, "The Winoka Warriors". This comment was an inside joke on Merlin Olsen (as Andy Garvey's father Jonathan) who knew everything about football as he played for 15 seasons in the National Football League (all with the Los Angeles Rams) and appeared in the Pro Bowl for 14 of his 15 seasons)

Nels Oleson[edit]

  • Harriet: Nels?

Nels: Yes, dear?
Harriet: Can I ask you something?
Nels: Yes, dear.
Harriet: Am I fat?
Nels: Yes, dear.


  • Remember me with smiles and laughter, for that is how I will remember you all. If you can only remember me with tears, then don't remember me at all (Julia Sanderson, 2.08 Remember Me, Part 1)


  • Mr. Edwards: No peekin'! Can't stand for no peekin'!
  • Nancy Oleson: You hate me!
  • Miss Beadle (and other teachers): In the corner, Willie!
