Sara Stanley, the privileged daughter of a wealthy Montreal merchant, is suddenly sent to live with her deceased mother’s relatives in the town of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. Sara manages to adjust, despite her Aunt Hetty's harsh treatment and the pranks played by her cousins at King Farm.
Alec King: Well, don't look at me like I have two heads. You two are the long lost King cousins.
Andrew King and Sara Stanley: Cousins?
Alec: Welcome to Prince Edward Island!
Hetty King: I can assure you, there's no room here unless you're willing to sleep in the chicken coop.
Hetty: As the eldest in the family I'm used to making unpopular decisions.
Sara: Listen to me, Andrew. Let's not get angry, let's get revenge.
Peg Bowen: Trickery of mind is just as potent as trickery of deed.
Felix King: I wish... I had all the money in the world. Maybe I could be a millionaire so I wouldn't have to listen to Andrew brag about his stupid father.
Felicity King: I wish that I had a long, slender neck, but no freckles! I wish that I was the most beautiful woman in the world and that a handsome king would travel to Prince Edward Island and would ask me to be his queen.
Hetty: Well, Sara Stanley! I suppose I'm losing a student and a good one at that it turned out.
Sara: I've decided to stay.
Hetty: I can assure you given the chance you will want to be off just... what did you say, child?
Sara: I said I'm staying.
