* In ''These Happy Golden Years,'' Almanzo takes on the job of driving twelve or so miles to pick Laura up and take her home for the weekend while she is away teaching school. One of these trips was made in weather well below zero (in the vicinity of forty below), and most of the people they run into on the trip think Almanzo was crazy for making the trip. When Laura asks him why he did it, Almanzo tells her he was looking at the temperature and considering whether it was wise to drive out. Cap Garland walks by, smirks at his obvious romantic dilemma, and tells him "God hates a coward."
--->'''Laura:''' So you came because you wouldn't take a dare?
--->'''Almanzo:''' No, it wasn't a dare. I just figured he was right.

Added DiffLines:

* The fact that Laura takes so long to realize Almanzo's courting her. The ''reader'' can see it right off the bat, but Laura's completely [[ObliviousToLove oblivious]] until Mary Power points it out -- almost a ''year'' into their courtship. Made even funnier by the fact that Almanzo was himself clearly unaware of her oblivion.

* In one of the later books, when Laura and Carrie are walking to school, the wind blows Laura's hoopskirts around her legs and she has to constantly stop and twirl around to untwist them. All the while talking about [[{{Irony}} how silly fashions were when Ma was a girl.]]

** The next weekend, when he picks her up for a drive, he slips the ring on her finger-- a gold band with a pearl in a garnet setting. She liked it enough to marry him.
