Quotes

June Cleaver: Ward, can you see any possible use for Franklin Milk bottle caps?
Ward Cleaver: Yeah. To hold the Franklin Milk in the Franklin Milk bottles.
June Cleaver: The boys have got a whole dishpan of them upstairs. They've been collecting them all week.
Ward Cleaver: It's nothing to be alarmed about. In my day, the collecting instinct was strong in every American boy worth his salt. I'm happy to see it has survived television, child psychology and the inroads of progressive education.
June Cleaver: I think I'm going to ask them why they're collecting those...

Pilot--airing???
7 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When was the pilot ever aired before? It seemed familiar to me yet I can't remember when I might have seen it before. I'm sure if it was been aired in recent years, someone out there can inform us as to when that was. Having grown up with the Beav..., Lucy, Father Knows Best, Donna Reed, Real McCoy's, Lassie, etc. episodes are forever with me. Since I've viewed the reruns many times over, I doubt if there are any episodes that I have not seen at some time. Unfortunately, I missed the airing on Good Morning, America for the 5oth Anniversry but was just able to find it on-line to view. Warm fuzzies for GMA for providing that wonderful tribute to our past. TV fathers were my glimpse at dads since there I was the only one I knew of that didn't have one growing up in the 50's and 60's. My life did not fit the family life that I was able to have via "classic" TV.
