Almanzo proposes to Laura who accepts, but their age difference is called into question by Charles, who tells Almanzo to wait two years for him and Laura to be married. An angry Almanzo states that he will not wait and two years seem like forever, and leaves Walnut Grove but Laura refuses to go with him.

Meanwhile, in an effort to improve business at Nellie's failing restaurant, the Olseons hire Percival Dalton to help straighten out things. However, Percival doesn't seem to be making much progress because of Nellie's refusal to learn the hospitality business. Only when Percival tells her that she is pretty does she begin to cooperate.
