* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: When Charles Ingalls Jr. was born, Laura got jealous of him and essentially wished he didn't exist, refusing to bless him. He died only days later. Then, just to twist the knife and give her a taste of her own medicine, Laura herself had a baby boy, who died so abruptly that she didn't even get to name him. In fact, Laura's sin seemed to implant a Biblical-esque curse that trickled down to ''every'' male firstborn in the Ingalls family, as Mary's own child was incinerated in a fire, and Albert, the oldest adopted boy, died from leukemia (it's implied, but the episode ended on a HopeSpot to avoid being too relentlessly sad). Even James was nearly killed because he was the firstborn male of the Cooper family, but Charles broke the curse through faith (and, heavily implied, [[CastFromLifespan having his own lifespan severely reduced to restore James]] given his hair directly afterwards and especially in future appearances).

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: In "Look Back to Yesterday", Nancy asks Albert what it's like knowing he's going to die. He replies that, while he was scared and angry at first, what's important is to make and have good memories that you can [[TitleDrop look back]] on. Everyone is moved to tears after his speech, especially Nancy.

** Carrie had ''one'' episode that focused on her (a 90-minute one at that, "The Godsister"). She never had another, likely due to said lack of acting skills.

* PutOnABus: Ebenezer Sprague, Walnut Grove's short-tenured banker, was introduced in season 2 as one of the new townsfolk, but he seldom appeared after his debut episode. He makes one last appearance in season 3 before quietly leaving the town. During the episode "To Live With Fear", Charles tries to go to Sprague for help, but Mr. Edwards tells Charles that Sprague pulled out of Walnut Grove because his bank wasn't getting enough business due to a bad year of crops.
