"Why, Aunt Polly, you—you spoke just as if you knew—DO you know about the game, Aunt Polly?"
"Yes, dear." Miss Polly sternly forced her voice to be cheerfully matter-of-fact. "Nancy told me. I think it's a beautiful game. I'm going to play it now—with you."
"Oh, Aunt Polly—YOU? I'm so glad! You see, I've really wanted you most of anybody, all the time."
Aunt Polly caught her breath a little sharply. It was even harder this time to keep her voice steady; but she did it.
"Yes, dear; and there are all those others, too. Why, Pollyanna, I think all the town is playing that game now with you—even to the minister! I haven't had a chance to tell you, yet, but this morning I met Mr. Ford when I was down to the village, and he told me to say to you that just as soon as you could see him, he was coming to tell you that he hadn't stopped being glad over those eight hundred rejoicing texts that you told him about. So you see, dear, it's just you that have done it. The whole town is playing the game, and the whole town is wonderfully happier—and all because of one little girl who taught the people a new game, and how to play it."
Pollyanna clapped her hands.
"Oh, I'm so glad," she cried. Then, suddenly, a wonderful light illumined her face. "Why, Aunt Polly, there IS something I can be glad about, after all. I can be glad I've HAD my legs, anyway—else I couldn't have done—that!"
- Pollyanna, Chapter 28
In this episode, Polly sees the sheer amount of support and goodwill that Pollyanna has sowed upon Beldingsville. That is the last key for Polly to be able to learn the Glad Game and allow for Pollyanna to become her usual cheery self again.
In addition, this episode shows what it truly means to be a Pollyanna. It's not a mindless happiness, but it's a happiness that you want to share with others.
