Titre original : The Sob Underneath the Snow
Dr. Lenard needs a substitute nurse, while his wife is visiting family. Candy helps out at his private practice with the visitors and joins him on housecalls. She learns that nursing is a profession with a stable future: there can never be enough nurses. When a note begs the doctor to help a woman in labour, up in the mountains while a blizzard blows, Candy already acts the bossy, stubborn nurse. Dr. Lenard wishes for Candy to remain safely behind, but she insists and argues to come with him. The doctor tells her of a legendary nurse of the Red Cross who worked night and day to ease the suffering of the soldiers in the Civil War. The birth of a healthy baby boy is the decisive happy reward for Candy's efforts to comfort the woman in labor. Back at Pony's Home, Miss Pony and Sister Maria tell her that they think she is responsible enough now to become a caretaker at the orphanage. But Candy realizes she wants to be a nurse. Luckily, Miss Pony has a good old friend who is head at a nursery school and she is willing to send her a recommendation letter.
