I yanked on the stem

as hard as I could and it broke,

so the magic pumpkin started

rolling down the hill.


I am so sick of Lucy's stories.

Don't interrupt, Molly.

I chased it but I couldn't catch it

because it was rolling too fast.

I have to go to the bathroom.

Are we far?

No. Just a little further

up the road.

The gas is cheaper here.

-Molly, where is your sister?

-Maybe she's in the bathroom.

By herself?

Molly, you know better than that.



And so the magic pumpkin

hit a rock and cracked open.

Inside there were

magic pumpkin seeds

that could bring

my baby sister back.

Well, little lady, how did you

conjure up a story like that?

You know,

nobody's around forever.


Lucy. There you are.


Wow, mom, this is cool!

-Can I go check out the barn?

-Me too.

No, I don't want you in there

until dad makes sure it's okay.

No, no, it's allright. Yeah,

go ahead girls, just be careful.

Stay out of the hayloft.

It may not be safe.

-I can't believe we did this.

-We did it.

Boy, oh boy, did we do it.

This is going to be good for us.

It is.

We better unpack.

The truck will be here soon.

I love you, Jeanne Cooley.

They used to have horses.

Mom said they had lots

of animals on this farm.

I want a horse.

You wouldn't even know

how to take care of one.

Yes, I would.

Mom says we can't go up there.

I'm going anyway.

It's pretty dark up there.

And there's probably ghosts.

Molly, I'm telling.

Okay, guys. There's one up front

and there's one in the back.

Can we decide which ones

we want without a battle?

I don't like this one.

That was easy.

-This one's okay.

-Luce, what do you think?



-Dad, you owe me a quarter.



I'm going to fix that for you later.

Alright. We got that sorted out.

You know what? I'll take that one.

Hello? Hello?

Hi. I'm Sheila Travers.

This is my husband Bud.

-We live just across the road.

-Hi, I'm Jeanne Cooley. How are you?

-Nice to meet you.

-Nice to meet you.

Guy! He's my husband.


This is our neighbors,

Sheila and Bud.

-Hi, Guy Cooley. How are you doing?


-Bud Travers.

-Nice to meet you. How are ya?

Great. Great.

Do you guys want to come inside?

We're still unpacking, it's a mess.

No, we just wanted to welcome you

to the neighborhood.

-And I made a casserole.

-Oh, thank you. That's so nice.

It's good to see some life around

this old farm. You city folks?

Oh, I hope it's not that obvious.

Guy got offered a job around here,

so we decided

to give country living a try.

Of course,

the windmill project, right?

-Yeah, that's right.

-How's that coming?

Great. We've got a great location

back on the mountain.

Hey, I want you to say hi

to Mr. and Mrs. Travers.


-You have children?

-Yeah, this is Molly

and Lucy's over there.

-You have a daughter named Lucy?


-Do you have any children?

-No. No kids, no.

God hasn't graced us with any.

I'm sorry.

You sure you won't come in?

No, no. That's okay.

We just came by to say hello.


Well thank you so much for

the casserole. That's very nice.

-It's nice meeting you, folks.

-Yeah, nice meeting you too.

-Welcome to town.

-Great, thank you.

-Take care.




-What is it?

-You'll like this, come here.

I have an 18th century farm house,

what else could I want?

Well, now you have

an 18th century dinner bell.

Go ahead, try it.

Molly! Lucy! Dinner!

Lucy! Molly! Dinner!

Molly! Lucy! Dinner!

I love you. I have to go.

Oh, where?

I have a meeting.

With Samantha Porter.

I thought we were going

to have dinner all together.

-The first night?

-I have to go up to the windmill.

Will you keep some warm for me?


-Thank you.


There it is...

the site of your future.

It's perfect.

How're you settling in?

Oh, it's an adjustment,

but we'll be fine.

-We love the house though.

-It's a classic.

-One of the first in town.

-So I understand.

Well look at that, a 15 mile an hour

reading. That's fantastic.

It's been a dream of this town

for a long time

to use this land

for something important.

Town meeting tomorrow.

What can we expect?

It's hard to muster up an argument

against green power these days.

I don't anticipate any problems.

These small towns, people can be

stubborn. They don't like change.

They're ready for change.

Trust me.

No. I can't talk right now.

What's going on?

What are you doing?

Come to bed.

You can't hear that?


I can't.

What I would give

for some freeway noise.

It's just going to take

a little while to get used to.

And it's actually almost

more of an obligation

to embrace a more progressive

forward-thinking energy alternative

like this one.

Wind power has been the way

of the past and ironically

will probably be the way

of the future, so...

And this is a revolutionary

new technology

that does a great job of harnessing

what is the oldest

and most renewable energy

resource available.

The wind.

Does anyone have any questions?

How many of these windmills

are we talking about here?

Typically we like

to build one windmill

or one turbine for every

eight to ten acres of land.

So I think we're talking

about eight windmills.

-Ms. Sawyer?


I'm all for green energy,

but I'm not sure I want

to look at eight big ugly towers.

I think what you need to ask yourself

is what is more important,
