|Oh, he's taking out Miss Snooty pants huh.|
—Albert on Christie.
Christie Norton was a young woman that Almanzo once asked out.
Christie Norton was a beautiful but self-important woman always concerned about her image rather then others. Almanzo invited her to London's Circus showing in Walnut Grove. So that she would look 'her' best, Christie hired Laura to mend her dress for her date with Almanzo. Distracted by Almanzo going out with Christie instead of her, Laura was five minutes late in delivering her dress. Cross with her, Christie only agreed to pay her half of the agreed price but Laura relented and gave it to her at no charge, in that she had learned her lesson.
Later, at the Circus show Christie was sitting in the front row with Almanzo looking like the perfect little picture that she loved being, and not really enjoying herself as she believed that Circuses were only for children, Laura, dressed as a clown decided to humiliate her. She threw a bucket of water on her and stripped her down to her Victorian underclothing. So embarrassed, she ran out in haste taking no further notice of Almanzo. She was never seen again.
