- Katla and Snilling
Katla: "Another gorgeous gray day, right dear?"
Snilling: "It's too cold for my bones, but that never seems to stop you, dear."
Knud: I'm gonna go play soldier with a tree!"
Katla: "That's nice, son. Just don't stomp on the crop like last time!"
Snilling: "I'll see if I can't get some work done inside, where it's warm."
- "You're a guest. And father says we have to be polite to guests."
- "Mama said I could help with the goats!"
