In one scene, the Waltons listen to "Fibber McGee and Molly" on the radio. However, the film takes place in 1933 and that program did not debut until 1935. In addition, the specific episode they're listening to is from 1947. See more
Grandpa, do we got something to show we own Walton's Mountain?
You can't own a mountain any more than you can own an ocean or a piece of the sky. You hold it in trust. You live on it, you take life from it, and once you're dead, you rest in it.
I'd just as soon not think about that part.
You're not ready for it yet.
