Molly had been at the kitchen table for two hours and forty six minutes, eve since Mrs. Gilford called everyone down for supper. Molly refuses to eat the turnips. When Molly had first sat down and saw an orange heap on her plate, she made a decision not to eat it.
Molly asked what the orange stuff was and Mrs. Gilford glared at her as she said the vegetable Molly was lucky to have on her plate was mashed turnip.

Ricky whispers he would like to "re-turn it" and Mrs Gilford asks sharply what he just said. Ricky says he likes to eat turnips as he ate some. Molly mentally calls Ricky a rat as she looked at Jill, who was taking ladylike bites out of her turnips. Molly sighed as she recalled how she could count on Jill to fuss about things like turnips.
But since she turned 14, Molly had to fuss herself while Jill acted superior. Molly thinks that if that's how she was going to be when she turned 14, she'd rather be 9 forever. As Molly's turnips grew cold and started to ooze water, Molly mutters it was disgusting. Gildford tells her that no such language would be used at the table and anyone who didn't eat the turnips would not get dessert and not be allowed to leave the table until they were gone.
And since then, Molly had been stuck at the table. Molly thinks how none of this would have happened if her Dad was still home. Molly opened up her locket to look at his picture. Her Dad was a doctor and when America started fighting in the war, he joined the army and was now somewhere in England taking care of wounded soldiers. He had been gone for seven months and Molly missed him every single day. Molly recalls how before her Dad left, everyone ate dinner together in the dining room.
Her Dad would have something special to say to everyone, from riddles for Brad to compliments to Jill and Mrs. But now her Dad was gone and her Mom worked long hours at the Red Cross, often arriving long after dinner had ended. Because of this, Mrs. Gilford took control of the house more than ever. Molly recalls how before the war, Mrs. Gilford would never serve turnips for dinner. But now to do her part to help the war, Mrs.
Gilford started a Victory Garden in the backyard last summer so they wouldn't have to use canned foods. Everyone helped out with the garden but due to the heat, most of the vegetables had wilted in the sun. The only vegetables that survived were radishes, Lima beans, and turnips, and now she made meals out of them. As Molly looked at her plate, she recalled how Mrs. Gilford told her that wasting food was not only childish, but unpatriotic and while her Dad may not have anything to eat tonight in England, she's turning down fresh turnips.
The kitchen was getting cold, Molly was tired, and she was tired of thinking about how unpatriotic she was. Molly tried a tiny bit of her turnips before Ricky stuck his head into the kitchen and asked if she liked eating old, cold, moldy brains before dashing out.
Molly quickly swallowed down her turnips, thinking how they really did taste like moldy brains and that she wasn't going to have another bite. She calls Ricky a rat as she gets out from her chair, but Ricky chants that Molly didn't finish her turnips. Molly yells at Ricky to stop, but she knew he was right. To make matters worse, Molly heard her Mother arriving back home. Molly thinks that her Mom will now get mad at Molly, refuse to make the Cinderella dress, and everyone would be mad at Molly for making Mom mad, all because of the turnips.
McIntire and Molly talk. McIntire walks in through the back door and as soon as she saw Molly and her plate, she knew what happened. She comments that they had Victory Garden turnips for dinner and Molly tells her Mom what happened. McIntire asks if she could join Molly for a cup of tea and offers to warm up the turnips. Molly doubts warming them up would help, but her Mom scooped up the turnips into the frying pan.
She comments they could spare a bit of their sugar and butter rations as she adds them to the turnips. Once the turnips and tea are done, Mrs. McIntire gives them back to Molly. She tries a bite and was surprised to find it was actually pretty good. McIntire tells Molly how when she was Molly's age, her Mother made sardines on toast and she refused to eat them. She was told she couldn't leave til the fish were gone, so she wrapped the fish in a napkin and hid it in her pocket.
Then when she was playing checkers with her Father, her two cats smelled the sardines and started bothering her.

One of the cats managed to pull the napkin out of her pocket and once the sardines were on the floor, they gobbled them up.
The two laugh at the story. McIntire tells Molly that everyone has to do things, weather they like them or not, and there weren't always cats around to eat the sardines. She tells Molly she knows the war is hard on her and the others and that she misses Dad too. Molly says that everything was so different with Dad gone, but her Mom tells her that while the war did change things, some things were still the same.
She points out that Ricky was still Ricky and Molly was still Molly. She squeezes Molly's hand and Molly smiles. Her Mom wasn't angry, the turnips were gone, and Mrs. Gilford wouldn't think she was unpatriotic. Molly thanks her Mom and hugs her. She then heads off to bed, pretending she was wearing a floaty pink skirt along the way.
Hula Dancers The next day at breakfast, Mrs. Gilford didn't mention the turnips. She did make French toast, however, a sign that Molly was forgiven.
That day after school, Linda and Susan were going to Molly's house to discuss their Halloween costume ideas. They made a pact not to talk about their ideas at school in case someone tried to copy their ideas. As the three walked home, Alison met up with the three and asked what they were going to be for Halloween.
Molly says it was a secret, but Lind and Susan say it was going to look great.
Things to Think About: Meet Molly, An American Girl
Alison looked impressed, making Molly a little worried. They haven't agreed on an idea and if they were going to hype up their costumes, they would have to think of a good idea lest they get teased. Alison shares her costume plans.
Molly asks what Alison was going to be and she replies that she was going to be an angel. She planned on wearing her Mother's white satin dressing gown along with a wings and a golden halo her Mom made. The three girls grew quiet as Molly gets jealous of Alison's idea. An angel was a great idea and Alison would look great with a halo over her hair. Molly thinks it was hard to be Alison's friend.
As an only child with rich parents who gave her everything she wanted, Alison didn't even need to brag. She could simply tell the truth and everyone would resent her and he money. Linda comments that her Mom didn't even have a dressing gown, only a brown bathrobe she would never let Linda wear.
Molly says their costume idea would be much more original and Alison quickly responds that the angel was her Mother's idea. Molly says goodbye as she, Linda and Susan hurried away, feeling uncomfortable when Alison started acting so nice. The girls reach Molly's house and enter through the kitchen to get a snack. Gilford and she tells them they could have an apple as a snack as long as they ate outside, saying the weather was too nice.
The girls sit on the back steps and see Ricky shooting baskets at the hoop on the side of the garage. As they eat their apples, Susan suggests they be angels like Alison. Molly quickly shoots the idea down, not wanting to steal Alison's idea.
Susan says Alison wouldn't ind, but Molly says she herself would mind, and they could think of something just as good. Linda asks if Molly had an idea. Molly, saying it as though she just thought of it, suggests they be Cinderella and her stepsisters. Susan loves the idea, but Linda immediately asks who gets to be Cinderella. Molly suggests they don't decide right away and they wait to see who has the best ball dress on Halloween.
The one with the best dress gets to be Cinderella and the others will be the stepsisters. Linda says it wasn't fair as no one wanted to be the ugly stepsister. Ricky jokes that they were all ugly step-sitters today and Molly tells him to cut it out.
Susan says she thought it was a good idea as she got an old prom dress from her sister Gloria. As she describes the dress, Molly grows worried. Susan's dress sounded perfect and unlike Molly's dress, it actually existed. Ricky threatens the girls. Not wanting to be an ugly stepsister, Molly sides with Linda and suggests they all dress like the same thing. Ricky suggests the three little pigs, the three bears, the three stooges, and the three Kings of Orient.
To her surprise, he does stop.S1: EP2: The Girls Are Back
His face turns red as she started showing off some fancy basketball moves. The three turn around to see who Ricky was showing off to, and they only see Jill and her new best friend Dolores walking up the driveway.
Dolores smiles as she greets Ricky and he squeaks hello back. He suddenly shoots the ball through the hoop as Dolores and ill went inside. The three girls start to giggle, well aware of Ricky's new crush on Dolores. They start teasing Ricky and don't stop even after he throws the ball at them. Ricky jumps on his bike and tells the girls they'll pay for this as he speeds off. The girls giggle some more before they sober up and returned to their discussion. The girls think up ideas, but none of them seem to work.
When the idea of being the 3 Blind Mice pops up, Mrs. McIntire overhears the idea and states she definitely didn't have the time to make such a costume, and it seemed wrong to use good materials for Halloween costumes during wartime.
She suggests that she could show the girls how to make paper grass skirts so they could be hula dancers.
Susan says her sister showed her how to make paper flowers and Linda adds her father had an old ukulele they could use. Thus, the girls decide to be hula dancers. By the time Susan and Linda had to go home, they made up their plans.
