Teddy: [both are stoned after smoking a bong at Teddy's home] Are you high?
Jack Melon: Am I who?
[both laugh]
Jack Melon: Hey man, look at that tree, all bent and twisted. It looks like Old Man Eber.
Teddy: Old man who?
Jack Melon: Old Man Eber. I walked past that tree hundreds of times and never saw him. How come I never noticed?
Teddy: 'Cause grass helps you see things clearer.
Jack Melon: I thought it was supposed to cloud things up.
Teddy: Just the opposite. You see things for less of what you want them to be and more for what they really are.

Well done story
2 October 2002 | by (Alexandria, VA) – See all my reviews

This one one of a couple of "ABC After School Specials" that Scott acted in, and it was probably the best. While not an Emmy caliber actor Scott handles his roles very credibly, as this installment of the ABC A.S.S. showed. Drugs were as big a problem with the young then, as they are now, and this show attempted to show how a promising young student (Baio) messed himself, and others around him up. Its unfortunate these afterschool specials (which appeared from 1972-1998)are no longer being produced, as I read somewhere that Okrah Winfrey has swallowed up the rights and no more further installments will come to bear. Too bad, as these specials were well produced, and featured many up-and-coming actors (Baio, Helen Hunt, Charlie Sheen, among them) that went on to make it successfully in Hollywood. Also many veteran actors (Lucielle Ball, Michael York, Dee Wallace Stone; to name a few) pitched in and appeared in several. These shows should be re-run on Nicklodeon, ABC family, or FOX Kids as the messages they deliver are timeless.
