Nellie is less than willing to go into the hospitality business, but gives it her best go when, in an effort to impress handsome young Almanzo Wilder, tries cooking dinner. Only thing is, Laura volunteers to cook instead and makes Nellie's meal the hottest dish in town. Later, Nellie learns that Laura is studying to be a teacher and volunteers to help her study ... but conveniently forgets to tell her that the study material won't help her one bit. An angry Laura confronts Nellie and the two get into a huge fistfight that leaves both girls very muddy. Almanzo breaks up the fight and takes her back to his place to clean up and cool off ... then Charles steps in and thinks that the much-older Almanzo is taking advantage of his 15-year-old daughter.

First you have another apology to make... to Almanzo.
You can... and you will.
I won't. I won't!
