Quotes from

Adolph Kramer, The Grandfather: I ask the Herr Pastor to forgive the words I said on the mountain.
Pastor Schultz: The words are forgotten, neighbor. This is a happy day for all of us. I - I hope we shall see you here often.
Adolph Kramer, The Grandfather: What do you say, Heidi?
Heidi: Well, I think everybody really ought to go to church on Sunday and I think there ought to be a Frau Schultz.


Heidi: How do you do, Fräulein Rottenmeier?
Fräulein Rottenmeier: What is your name?
Heidi: Heidi.
Fräulein Rottenmeier: Heidi? Ridiculous. What name did they give you when you were baptized?
Heidi: I don't remember that.
Fräulein Rottenmeier: Are you being impudent?
Dete: No, Fräulein. She didn't understand. She was baptized Adelheid.
Fräulein Rottenmeier: Hmm. She looks too young. How old is she?
Dete: She's older than she appears. She's nearly eleven.
Heidi: Aunt Dete doesn't tell the truth. I'm eight years old today.


Heidi: Aunt Dete! What - what do you want here?
Dete: Where's your grandfather?
Heidi: He's up on the mountain, cutting some logs.
Dete: Now you get on your coat and mittens. We're going away.
Heidi: I don't want to go away!
Dete: What?
Heidi: I want to stay here. I love the Grandfather, and he loves me. It's my birthday and we're going to have a party. Look.
[showing Dete a pair of shoes with a dark goat and a light goat sewn on them]
Heidi: He made me these for a present. There's Swanli and Bearli. And we're going down to the village to get sausage and butter because the Grandmother and Peter are coming.
Dete: Well, he won't mind you going on a little trip with me.
Heidi: Where?
Dete: Just to Frankfurt. You can come back whenever you like.
Heidi: I don't want to go to Frankfurt.
Dete: You will do as I say! Where are your clothes?
Heidi: I've got to ask the Grandfather first.
Dete: Where are they?
Heidi: [pointing to the closet] In there.
Dete: Now, there's nothing to worry about. We'll have a sleigh ride to Mayenfeld, and a nice trip on a train. And I'll buy you a present for your birthday.
Heidi: And can I come right back, in time for my party?
Dete: Now, didn't I tell you you could?
Heidi: Can I bring some soft rolls for the Grandmother? You see, she hasn't many teeth and can't eat her black bread.
Dete: Oh, yes. Come! Hurry up! Hurry up!
Heidi: First, I must go up the mountain and tell the Grandfather where I'm going.
Dete: There isn't time. We might miss our train! I'll send word back to him!
Heidi: But I'd rather tell him myself. Do you think if I put my birthda
