* 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.

* In ''These Happy Golden Years'', Nellie manages to weasel her way into joining Laura and Almanzo on their Sunday buggy rides, Almanzo being completely clueless as to her actual motives (she's out to drive Laura away, either because she's sweet on him herself or just to piss Laura off, or both). Laura, unwilling to cave, lets the edge of the dust-robe (basically a blanket designed to keep dust off the riders' clothes) flap like a sail and scares the horses into bolting. Nellie freaks out along with them, throws a fit, and declares she'll never ride behind those maniac horses again. When Laura and Almanzo later take her friend Ida for a drive, Ida is surprised anyone could be afraid of such gentle horses, at which Almanzo looks at Laura, who just smiles and tucks in the dust-robe a little more securely.

Laura, unwilling to cave, lets the edge of the dust-robe (basically a blanket designed to keep dust off the riders' clothes) flap like a sail and scares the horses into bolting. Nellie freaks out along with them, them - grabs Almazo's arm 'which he very much needed to use just then', throws a fit, and declares she'll never ride behind those maniac horses again.

* In ''These Happy Golden Years'', a kitten wanders into church one Sunday morning, and winds up chased by a dog. The kitten runs off and apparently disappears, until Laura realizes it's crawled up beneath her dress and is scaling her hoop skirts like a little mountain climber. When she imagines what might happen if the dog were to find it, she tries so hard not to laugh that Mary elbows her and tells her to behave herself. This just makes things harder for Laura, and when, after church, Mary scolds her for it, she laughs until she cries. When she tells Pa and Mary why, even Mary has to admit it's pretty funny.
* Also in ''Little Town on the Prairie'', the two drunks that walk arm-in-arm down the street, solemnly singing hymns and kicking the screen doors of every store they pass. Particularly amusing is when they break Royal Wilder's door, and he "yanked it open and said what he thought." Ma doesn't find the story amusing, but Pa (quietly) does.

** It becomes a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when Laura decides everything she's gone through teaching school is worth it, because when Mary tells the story, it's the first time she's actually laughed since before she went blind.

* At the point where Mary is attending a school for the blind, during a visit home she relates a story of a shopping trip she took with a friend who, while legally blind, can make out colors. Her friend picked out handkerchiefs by color and lead the storekeeper to believe that she could tell color by ''touch.''
